Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker, who is currently on the Commissioner’s Exempt List while he tries to clear his name after being accused of committing armed robbery and aggravated assault, has been formally charged with four counts of robbery with a firearm, the Broward (Florida) County prosecutor announced on Friday.
Seattle cornerback Quinton Dunbar was not charged due to what prosecutors described as “insufficient evidence.”
The 22-year-old Baker was accused of wielding a firearm steal designer watches and cash from multiple victims. He is facing a minimum of 10 years in prison and up to life as well.
Baker’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, would soon take to social media and rip prosecutors for their actions:

Disgusting and no I won't hold back on behalf of this young man. To charge a young man based on admitted liars testimony is why we need a change in Broward from the old guard. I implore you all to go out and vote. Don't waste your vote. There are candidates that will change the landscape of how the judicial system works. We will now expose the hypocrisy at the case filing level, the way the office of the state attorney "teamed up" with these convicted felons and offered them to come in and explain why they changed their stories multiple times without fear of prosecutuon. That they were tipped off that we were reporting the extortion. Texting "if you don't pay we go to TMZ" The case filier in this case looked for anyway possible and even ignored the disagreement with his colleagues to charge this case. I will be giving a more formal statement on that process. #justicereform #judticeforsome #deandrebaker how about an exclusive? These "victims" offered to "settle" their claims for $500,000 as they were being pulled into the state attorneys office to then say they accepted money to change their story allegedly. Think about that 🤔 the case filier was completely clueless that at the same time they were "cooperating" they were continuing to ask for money to change a story for the 3rd time.
“Disgusting and no I won’t hold back on behalf of this young man,” Cohen wrote. “To charge a young man based on admitted liars testimony is why we need a change in Broward from the old guard.”
Cohen went on to vow to “expose the hypocrisy at the case filing level, the way the office of the state attorney ‘teamed up’ with these convicted felons and offered them to come in and explain why they changed their stories multiple times without fear of prosecution.”
