DeAndre Baker, Quinton Dunbar turn themselves in to police

first_imgToday our client Quintin Dunbar voluntarily surrendered at the Broward County jail pursuant to a bogus arrest warrant based solely on uncorroborated witness statements that have since been recanted. As I write this an innocent man sits in jail, facing charges that hold no water. His career and reputation have been put in jeopardy as a result of an overzealous @miramarpd that was so excited about arresting a pro football player that they tweeted out their celebration and even tagged his employer in their unprofessional “virtual touchdown dance.” When this case gets dropped I wonder if the Miramar cops will be tweeting out their apology too. In my 20-year criminal justice career I have rarely seen an injustice like this. Quintin has never been in trouble before and to think he’s now sitting in jail risking his health during a pandemic due to recanted false allegations makes me sick. This is when the prosecutors can correct the wrongs committed by police’s rush to judgement. #innocent #miscarriageofjustice #falsearrest #crime #criminallaw #criminallawyerA post shared by Michael Grieco (@mike_grieco) on May 16, 2020 at 12:25pm PDTMORE: Baker, Quinton Dunbar sought in holdup of partygoers in Florida According to warrants, police believe the robbery was planned because of how their alleged getaway vehicles were positioned. A witness also reportedly saw Baker and Dunbar at a party two days prior in Miami where they had lost roughly $70,000.Both Baker’s and Dunbar’s attorneys claim to have affidavits from several people at the cookout clearing them of any wrongdoing.(This article has been updated from a previous version). Police put out a warrant for the players’ arrests on Thursday. Both face four counts of armed robbery with a firearm; Baker also faces four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. Police allege the players and a third man robbed people of cash and jewelry estimated at $73,500 at a Wednesday cookout.The alleged robbery occurred after a dispute involving Baker broke out. He is accused of directing Dunbar to assist in the robbery and allegedly telling the third man to shoot an individual as they walked into the cookout while the robbery took place. No shots were fired. View this post on Instagram Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker and Seahawks defensive back Quinton Dunbar have turned themselves into the Broward County (Fla.) jail, their respective attorneys confirmed via social media on Saturday. 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.A post shared by Bradford Cohen (@lawronin) on May 16, 2020 at 7:07am PDT View this post on Instagramlast_img read more

Mills encouraged by Bolt’s return

first_img impressed LONDON, England: Despite handing out a failing grade in his athlete’s second of two runs, coach Glen Mills was left generally satisfied with Usain Bolt’s back-to-back 9.87 runs at the Sainsbury’s Anniversary Games on Friday, inside the London Olympic Stadium. Mills, after watching Bolt post his fastest times this season, believes the signs are encouraging as he now focuses on sharpening up the sprinter ahead of his double-sprint title defence at the IAAF World Championships in Beijing, China, which is now a mere four weeks away. In wet and chilly conditions, Bolt won his heat in 9.87 seconds, running against a -1.2 wind, and returned to again stop the clock at 9.87 (-0.8), with Mike Rodgers, who was also second in Bolt’s heat, following the big Jamaican to the line in 9.90, with another Jamaican, Kemar Bailey-Cole, posting a personal-best 9.92 for third. Nesta Carter was seventh in 10.08. Mills was left impressed with Bolt’s run in the heat, but was less pleased with his execution in the final. “To put it into context, he had one 100m before this in Brazil in April, so between April and now is a significant period of time. So to start at 9.87 is an indication that he is making progress, and the focus is to continue getting his competitive condition to be at his best by the time we get to Beijing,” Mills told The Gleaner. “His performance is encouraging.” “Yes, it’s clear that his (Bolt’s) performance in his heat was far superior to his run in the final, even though the times are the same. In the heat, he executed much better than he did in the finals. He had a better start, his mechanics was better, and despite the -1.2 wind, he was able to run 9.87 after he eased down near the end, which would indicate that with a full effort and no wind, he probably would have gone under 9.80 seconds,” Mills assessed. “But he came back in the final, and there was less breeze, but his execution was very poor. It was bad at the start, he lost ground and stumbled a bit and had to come from way back to actually get back; but all in all, it was a good training exercise,” added Mills. Still, after going into the meet with questions about his ability to successfully defend his world titles in the coming weeks, Mills feels that the sprinter has gone a long way in showing that he is on the right course to do just that in Beijing. “What I can say, though, is that today, he (Bolt) showed that he has made some progress, and we hope that we can make significant advancement on that, and that by the time Beijing comes around, he will be at the competitive level where he can execute much better and defend his title,” Mills said. Bolt is not expected to compete again before the World Championships. andre.lowe@gleanerjm.comlast_img read more

first_imgThe body of Ramnarine Etwaru lying on the damRamnarine EtwaruThe body of an East Canje farmer was on Tuesday afternoon found on a dam in the canfield with what appeared to be gunshots wounds.Dead is Ramnarine Etwaru 38, also called “Bill” of Lot 84 Ganga ram Settlement East Canje.

Liverpool look a LOT more solid this season, hails former Anfield boss

first_imgRoy Evans believes Brendan Rodgers has made Liverpool a much more resilient outfit this season.The Reds have yet to concede in three Premier League games, with summer signings Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez fitting seamlessly into the full-back positions and Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren beginning to form an impressive partnership in the centre of defence.Liverpool’s resolute display in the goalless draw against Arsenal on Monday night was in stark contrast to their last visit to the Emirates, when they shipped four goals, and Evans says Rodgers must be delighted with his new-look back-line.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the former Anfield boss said: “I like the way he has changed his system slightly.“Certainly the two full-backs are not pushing so far up the pitch. That gives them a chance to be in better defensive positions but it still gives them a chance to go and attack when needed.“The whole defensive system looks a lot more solid than it did last year. That gives them the base to go forward and attack and even in the second half when they weren’t as dominant against Arsenal they still managed to hit them on the counter-attack and give them some problems.“As a back four, it looks completely solid. They are closing down people, they look to be more alert, they are a litte bit closer together and nobody seems to be getting isolated.”last_img read more

Man City starlet admits dream is to play against Real Madrid

first_img1 Kelechi Iheanacho scored twice against Stoke City Manchester City starlet Kelechi Iheanacho is hoping to fulfil a dream this week, and play against Real Madrid in the Champions League.The 19-year-old striker started his fourth Premier League game of the season on Saturday, netting twice in a 4-0 rout of Stoke City.He has looked a natural goalscorer whenever given the chance to play by Manuel Pellegrini, bagging 10 goals in 30 games, but his Champions League career has so far been limited despite the Nigerian’s obvious talent.Iheanacho has managed just two minutes of action in Europe’s premier competition, coming on as a late substitute against Dynamo Kyiv and then PSG, but the youngster still has hope he will be given the chance to feature against Real Madrid this week.The La Liga giants visit the Etihad for the first leg of City’s first Champions League semi-final, offering Iheanacho the chance to challenge himself against the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.“I think I should dream about that because it’s a great team to dream about,” he said. “It would be a dream come true to play against them.“Ronaldo and Messi are the greatest players on the planet so I think playing against them is a big thing to anyone. It would be a big thing to me if I play against him on Tuesday.”Barring injury concerns for Fernando and Yaya Toure, the Stoke victory was the ideal start to a huge week, with City moving closer to securing a top-four spot.Iheanacho was not the only player to impress in the win, and he believes such a morale boosting game is perfect preparation for the clash with Zinedine Zidane’s men.The youngster added: “This game is a great preparation for us against Real Madrid. On Tuesday, we need to focus and work hard because they’re a good side. I think we are prepared to face them.”last_img read more
