Quinton Dunbar attorney calls robbery “a fabrication,” says witnesses lack credibility

The defense attorney for Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar said that his client was not involved in an alleged armed robbery last Wednesday night and that the alleged victims of the crime have lost all credibility for having two separate accounts of the incident.

In an interview with Sports Radio 950 KJR on Monday afternoon, Dunbar’s attorney Michael Grieco said that his client was not at the house in question when an alleged armed robbery took place involving Dunbar and New York Giants cornerback Deandre Baker.

The whole thing is a fabrication. It’s a fabrication. I wouldn’t be coming out as quickly and as loudly as I have if I didn’t strongly believe that that’s the case. Everything that’s happened since that day has just further buttressed my position on that,” Grieco said.

Grieco said that outside of a lone independent witness whose story has remained consistent that Dunbar wasn’t involved in a robbery, the four alleged victims of the robbery have all signed sworn affidavits contradicting their initial claims to police that they were robbed by Dunbar and Baker. Grieco added that whether he’s being told the truth now or not, the claims don’t stand up to scrutiny.

“Whether I’m being told the truth or the police are being told the truth, those two stories are completely different. They’ve sworn under penalty of perjury to both versions of events. So when I say they’re liars, they’re liars. They either lied under oath to me or they lied under oath to the police. Either way, their credibility is shot,” Grieco said.

Grieco was confident that the case against Dunbar would ultimately get dismissed. He also brushed aside any notion that the reason the witnesses have changed their story is due to any form of coercion or made the statements under duress.

“It’s ridiculous. These guys actually came into my office. We had multiple witnesses there. They were joking around. There was no issue of anything in that realm at all. It was a ridiculous thing to say.” Grieco said.

  1. Suppose, just suppose they get the charges dismissed. Do you think it’s the end of it? I wouldn’t want to drive around in a car with them. The victims aren’t just going to roll over and die. There will be payback. The streets will take care of this.

  2. The stolen items tell the tale. If they were recovered, at least one set of finger oils/skin flake/DNA will be present on them that either matches, or does not, any of the alleged participants (it’s a pretty good bet they weren’t wearing gloves).

    The other thing I’d do is monitor these four “didn’t do it” signee’s bank accounts to watch for sudden large deposits. This will have to include digital currencies (not sure how that can be done). Witness tampering is it’s own crime.

  3. Classic lawyer strategy; attack the victims, make them look like the bad guys to deflect the stink off their clients.

    We’ve seen it before. Nothing new. Everyone involved seems to be scum, including the lawyers.

    Think about it; you see a movie and then 10 years later you see a remake of it. Could be the same story but the retelling of it makes it different. Are they both movies? Could one be better than the other? In the end, you get the same story arc, though. Different, but the same, just like you and me.

    These NFL players are not innocent but the lawyers will get them to walk on these charges.

  4. Glad to see Jackie Chiles the attorney from Seinfeld still finding work these days..

  5. So now it’s gotten to the point where this event never even happened? What world does that attorney live in? He’s starting to look like a total maroon.

    Is his attorney actually “Seinfeld’s” “Jackie Childs” in disguise?

    Jackie Childs
