New York Giants star cornerback and 2019 first-round pick Deandre Baker is in hot water after allegedly robbing people at gunpoint during a cookout in Florida this past Wednesday.
The Georgia product is facing our counts of armed robbery with a firearm and four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.
After being in the wind for the past few days, Baker’s lawyer confirmed on Saturday morning that the young defensive back has turned himself in to authorities in Florida.
Baker, 22, faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison for each of the four charges of armed robbery if convicted. That’s 60 years in prison for those four charges alone.
Though, Florida could waive said mandatory minimum and Baker could plead out to lesser charges. Even then, he’s facing substantial jail time.
The No. 30 overall pick in last year’s NFL Draft, Baker is seen as a franchise cornerstone for the Giants. As of right now, they have no plans to release him.
As it relates to Seahawks corner Quinton Dunbar, who also had an arrest warrant issues for him this past Thursday stemming from said incident, he has not yet turned himself in.
