NFL’s Baker, Dun­bar plead not guilty to rob­bery charges

Kuwait Times - - Sports -

MI­AMI: NFL cor­ner­backs Quin­ton Dun­bar and DeAn­dre Baker have for­mally pleaded not guilty to charges of armed rob­bery in Florida. Seat­tle Sea­hawks de­fender Dun­bar for­mally en­tered his plea in Broward County Circuit Court on Tues­day, a day after the New York Gi­ants’ Baker pleaded not guilty. Both men’s at­tor­neys have asked for a jury trial, and Dun­bar’s lawyer, Michael Grieco, said he thought his client’s next court hear­ing could come within weeks.

Grieco told the Seat­tle Times that he con­tin­ued to hope the case against his client would be dropped, say­ing he had pro­duced five af­fi­davits from four vic­tims and one wit­ness who say that Dun­bar did not take part in any crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity.

Broward County pros­e­cu­tor Aaron Passy, how­ever, called the af­fi­davits “sus­pect”. Both Dun­bar and Baker are fac­ing four charges of armed rob­bery in con­nec­tion with an al­leged May 13 in­ci­dent at a party at a home in Mi­ra­mar, near Mi­ami, where wit­nesses told the po­lice the two took thou­sands of dol­lars in cash, ex­pen­sive watches and other valu­ables from guests. —AFP
