Ray Lewis pleaded guilty in relation to the case: for obstruction of justice, a misdemeanor. He originally was charged with two counts of murder but struck a deal with sports-friendly prosecutors in exchange for his testimony against two of his companions that night, Reginald Oakley and Joseph Sweeting. The sweetheart deal reached with prosecutors assured that the NFL career of Ray Lewis would continue.
Both Reginald Oakley and Joseph Sweeting were aquitted as expected because the real murderer was let free. Prime Murder Suspect Ray Lewis had testified that Oakley, Sweeting and another man had gone to a sporting goods store the previous day to buy knives. Baker's blood later was found in Lewis' limo. Having fled the crime scene, Lewis told the limo's passengers to "keep their mouths shut." No one never expected that this remark applied to local prosecutors as well.
For his punishment, Lewis received one year of probation and a $250,000 fine by the NFL.
