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
