DeAndre Bakerís bail amount may mean case is unraveling
New York Post ^ | May 17, 2020 | Paul Schwartz

The $200,000 bail set Sunday for DeAndre Baker sounds like an onerous amount, but it was not, given that the Giants cornerback signed a four-year contract worth $10.5 million and last year received a signing bonus of $5.67 million.

This could be an indication that despite the serious charges against Baker — four counts of armed robbery with a firearm and four counts of aggravated assault — the case might be unraveling, with witnesses recanting on their initial statements, a local defense attorney said.

“From what has been presented to the public from the arraignment it seems that this case may not be as strong as the prosecution has alleged,’’ David Touger, a New York-based criminal defense attorney, told The Post. “The public must remember all is not necessarily as it seems and people who had [Baker’s] career done and over might have to eat a little crow. This is America, and he is innocent until proven guilty.’’

Also saw some mention of a video showing Baker's conduct wasn't what his accusers describe. Who knows.

Well, it might mean all that, but it might also mean the court has a good expectation of this guy showing up for trial. Which, quite frankly, they do, considering a. he turned himself in, and b. he’s famous, or at least semi-famous.

You mean like they did with Kobe Bryant when the victim was harassed and threatened for her life and refused to testify?

In America you get just as much justice as you can afford.

Millions of people pay money to watch that 23-year-old play a game. No one but maybe one or two parents will want to watch your teacher lady yell at a pile of kids.

Thousands of people pay too much money to wear a Chinese copy of his jersey. No one's gonna pay to wear your teacher's outfit.

Companies pay big $$ to have their logos and ads around his team. If a company started putting their logo in a school, everyone would be whining about it, liberals and conservatives.

It is what it is. Some people value their kids education enough to pay good money for it, while others see it as a free daycare. But when schools don't make millions of dollars, they certainly can;t pay their teachers a million dollar salary.
