DeAndre Baker still awaiting his next court date
ESPN’s Jordan Raanan is reporting that three of the four victims involved in the robbery that former New York Giants’ cornerback DeAndre Baker pulled off earlier in the year have recanted their statements.
Julius Lamar, Steven Compton and Tommy J. Hartshaw said in sworn statements that Baker “did not directly or indirectly participate in any robbery or assist in a robbery at the scene or elsewhere.” The three men added that they didn’t see Baker rob or assault anyone with or without a firearm.
Baker is currently being charged in Florida with four counts of robbery while possessing a firearm. Everything allegedly went down at a party in May down in Miramar, Florida.
The Giants ended up releasing Baker once he was charged and he is currently a free agent, but is on the commissioner’s exempt list. If he’s convicted he could serve anywhere between 10 years to life in prison, which is crazy to think about for a football player that was drafted in the first round in 2019 out of the University of Georgia.
Baker’s next court date is set for December 2nd. If he somehow avoids jail time, I cant imagine that the Giants will bring him back.
