The attorney for Giants cornerback Deandre Baker expects the armed robbery charges against his client will be dismissed “one day soon,” but they are still in place for the moment and Baker had to enter a plea on the charges on Tuesday.

Baker’s attorney has also said that Baker is innocent of the charges against him, so there’s little surprise to learn that he pleaded not guilty to all eight charges against him. Baker is charged with four counts of armed robbery and four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.

Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar was also arrested on armed robbery charges in conjunction with the incident in Florida last week. His attorney has also professed his client’s innocence.

Per, there’s no word at this point on future hearings for Baker on these charges.

  1. In 2020, cant we revamp the justice system a little bit. Do we really need to have the accused enter a plea. Cant we just go ahead and assume they are pleading not guilty, and allow them an opportunity to voluntarily change that “default” plea. Every single time some one is accused of a crime, they go to court, enter their not guilty plea, and waste everyone’s times. Cant we just skip that procedural garbage and get on with it?

  2. Baker and Dunbar will pay off the victims and witnesses. These individuals will then magically recant their stories or refuse to cooperate with police. Charges will be dropped as if nothing happened. And their attorneys will flaunt their innocence while skewering the police department. I don’t like attorneys.

  3. Okay…everybody sign off, and put this one straight to the top of the docket for the first pay-per-view judge Judy.

  4. People that say they “Hate Lawyers” really have no clue as to how the justice system works.

  5. I am not saying they are innocent, but I am pretty surprised that there is not a video of the incident in this day and age.

  6. These obviously false allegations could ruin this young man’s career. The witnesses recanted their story. The Prosecutor is attacking his character anyway because in America if you’re young black and successful everyone is out to get you. Sending prayers that this case goes away quickly and he can return his focus to football, instead of this obvious extortion attempt.

    LoL, gotta love lawyers… OJ was “innocent” too.
    If it don’t fit, you must acquit. Glove didn’t fit, so they had to acquit.
