New York Giants Cornerback, DeAndre Baker, has turned himself in according to Bradley Cohen, DeAndre’s attorney.
In an Instagram post, Cohen urged people not to cast judgment while authorities sort out the matter.
”Police reports are just that, reports of what was told to them or said to them,’’ Cohen said. “Court is what we use to then examine those reports, investigate those claims, and allow the Defendant an opportunity to confront the evidence. Don’t rush to [judgment].”
Baker is being charged with four counts of armed robbery with a firearm and four counts of aggravated assault.
The incident took place in Miramar, Florida, during a small gathering on May 14.
According to an affidavit released by the Miramar Police Department, Baker, Seattle cornerback Quinton Dunbar, and a third unidentified man were alleged to have threatened attendees at the gathering, with Baker reportedly brandishing a semiautomatic firearm.
On Saturday, Cohen took to Instagram again and said he believes video evidence will ”exonerate” his client.
”We will be presenting the trove of evidence we have obtained over the past 3 days to the judge at the right time,” Cohen wrote. “7 affidavits exonerating my client and video evidence.”
If DeAndre is convicted of the said charges, he could face a minimum of 15 years for each charge.
