DeAndre Baker, the upcoming NFL player, has been charged with four robberies with a firearm originating from an alleged incident in south Florida.
The 22-year-old is a cornerback for the New York Giants.
The accusations from May include stealing money and watches from four men at a house party in Miramar, Florida, Broward State Attorney’s Office stated.
The witnesses allege that Baker robbed the four men on gunpoint.
If proven guilty, Baker will be sentenced to 10 years in prison at a minimum.
A couple of days after the alleged robbery, Baker and Quinton Dunbar turned themselves in. Quinton Dunbar is an NFL player playing for Seattle Seahawks.
Broward County prosecutors didn’t file charges against the latter due to “insufficient evidence.”
The New York Giants said that Baker remains a member of the team at this time.
Dubar along with Baker was put on the NFL’s Commissioner’s Exempt List in July. This list is a special roster status that suspends the player with payment. The list does not count against the player’s team’s active roster limit.
Only the commissioner has the authorization to include a player to this list or exclude them from it.
