The arraignment for CB DeAndre Baker in Broward County, Fla., scheduled for Sept. 15, has been pushed back to Jan, 20, 2021.
That should be seen as a setback for Baker, who is on the exempt list and thus, unless there is a dismissal, will have to miss the entire 2020 season while awaiting trial for the May 13 incident that brought four armed robbery charges. Three of the alleged victims are pursuing a civil suit against Baker for $100,000.
“Civil suits back up my position of extortion,’’ Patrick Patel, one of Baker’s lawyers, told The Post. “They know they are not winning a criminal case so start a civil one. Shows real intent by ‘victims’ here.’’
