Three of the four alleged victims in an ongoing case involving former Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker recanted their statements that he robbed them at a party earlier this year, according to sworn affidavits obtained by ESPN's Jordan Raanan, who reported Friday evening that they said they "did not directly or indirectly participate in any robbery or assist in a robbery at the scene or elsewhere."
Julius Lamar, Steven Compton and Tommy J. Hartshaw added that they did not witness Baker rob or assault anyone with or without a firearm.
Baker, 23, was arrested after a mid-May incident involving Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar in which Miramar (Fla.) authorities issued a warrant for him on multiple counts of armed robbery and aggravated assault.
A Sept. 2 report by SNY's Ralph Vacchiano revealed that Baker expected to be released by the Giants. Five days later, Baker was waived.
Baker faces a mandatory minimum of 10 years and up to life in state prison if convicted. His next court case is Dec. 2 with the court expected to consider his motion for issuance of order for show cause, according to Raanan.
