New York Giants Preview: Vegas Outlook
(1:07)

DeAndre Baker is now officially fighting for his freedom. The New York Giants defensive back has been formally charged by Broward State Attorney Mike Satz with four counts of robbery with a firearm, per Pat Leonard of New York Daily News, stemming from an incident in May that also initially involved Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar. While Dunbar, 28, will not face charges due to insufficient evidence, Baker is facing upwards of 10 years to life in state prison for each count. 

Both Baker and Dunbar were initially arrested on warrants that alleged they robbed partygoers at gunpoint before escaping in high-priced getaway vehicles. The allegations sparked a mountain of infighting between the legal sides of both parties, but while Dunbar has found resolution in exoneration, Baker will now go on trial.

The NFL released the following statement, via Ian Rapoport of NFL Network: “We have been monitoring all developments in the matter which remains under review.”

This is a developing story.
