*Deandre Baker, the NY Giants cornerback, has turned himself in to officials in Florida in his armed robbery case, according to his attorney Bradford Cohen.
Cohen said he had a ‘trove’ of evidence that exonerates him in an Instagram post early Saturday.
“We will be presenting the trove of evidence we have obtained over the past 3 days to the judge at the right time,” Cohen wrote.
“7 affidavits exonerating my client and video evidence.”
Baker’s lawyer also urged people not to ‘rush to [judgment]’ over the allegations.
As we reported earlier, Deandre Baker is facing multiple charges including armed robbery and aggravated assault for his alleged role in a May 13 incident at a cookout.
Baker along with Seattle Seahawks corner Quinton Dunbar and a 3rd masked man, reportedly robbed several partygoers during a cookout, taking cash and jewelry before escaping in exotic getaway cars.

Reports are correct that Deandre turned himself in this morning. I am a believer in the system and that if everything works the matter will be appropriately resolved. Both my client and I have felt @miramarpd and the Detective working the case, were accommodating and went out of their way to assure Mr Bakers privacy during this hard time. That is not just lip service, it is fact,, and we appreciate it. This is my 23rd year in practice defending those who I feel are wrongly charged or wrongly treated. That doesn’t mean that all police officers are bad or all are good. We all have jobs to do and I believe we all do them to the best of our ability. Police reports are just that, reports of what was told to them or said to them. Court is what we use to then examine those reports, investigate those claims and allow the Defendant an opportunity to confront the evidence. Don’t rush to judgement.
The police report claim Baker brandished a gun during the robbery even Attorney Cohen insists his client is innocent and he even has multiple witnesses to back up his story.
