The attorney for Giants cornerback Deandre Baker claims his client is “innocent of any charges” and has several witness statements disputing the allegations.

Bradford Cohen, the attorney for Baker, released a statement on Instagram on Friday night. Michael Grieco, the attorney for Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar, had a similar statement earlier in the day.

“I want to thank @miramarpd for being professional in regards to surrendering and issues with the case,” Cohen wrote. “We understand that the officers can only base warrants on what was told to them at the time. We have had affidavits from several witnesses that also dispute the allegations and exculpate our client. Our investigator has had them for some time. We would have rather presented them to the court at the proper time, rather than in the media, but in this day and age, people rush to judgment. Where some seek publicity, we seek justice. I look forward to moving this case forward to proper conclusion, as we believe our client is innocent of any charges.”

Arrest warrants were issued for the two NFL players Thursday.

Baker faces four counts of armed robbery with a firearm and four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. Dunbar faces four counts of armed robbery with a firearm.

  1. When both attorneys claim their clients are not guilty, I start to wonder what the witnesses saw? In this day in age, surprised we haven’t seen a leaked video to help sort this out.

  2. DeAndre Bakers attorney claims his client is “innocent of any charges”

    Isn’t that what he is paid to do? I mean if his attorney came out and said “guilty as sin” or “tried to sick me up too” we would all call both of them idiots.

  3. I still wonder if some of the so called witnesses really want to go through the scrutiny of public exposure and being on a witness stand.
    Considering the reported amount of cash and bling involved it is very possible these aren’t model citizens nor a party where they would want a protracted investigation of.
    In our legal system being a witness…. especially in a high profile situation with media attention….might not be considered a desired position to be in.

  4. Well if their lawyers say so….

    Sounds as if these two took notes during Warren Sapp’s speech at the rookie symposium!

  6. When you dont turn yourself in when there is a arrest warrant, your guilty of something. That lawyer is awful and giving poor advice. Turn yourself in, post bail, and let the judicial system work. No other way.

  7. Then turn yourself in like any other citizen would have to and face those charges. Its that simple.

  8. I am going to Vegas and bet all charges were dropped and both sides agreed on a settlement which can not be discussed. In other words my guy, paid your guy enough money to make it go away. So really what actually happened is irrelevant, as long as people get paid. It is called justice American style. Anyone want to take the bet?

  9. Lawyers :

    OJ Simpson – not guilty
    Rae Carruth – not guilty
    Ray Lewis – not guilty
    Deandre Baker – not guilty

    Turns out nobody did anything… not guilty, lol

  10. “Bradford Cohen, the attorney for Baker, released a statement on Instagram on Friday night.”

    On Instagram? You have got to be kidding me. SMH

  11. While the lawyer is getting paid to say that, the people at the party saw what happens and would beg to differ.
