Ravens | Lawyer Says Fuller Was Targeted

The Associated Press reports Baltimore Ravens CB Corey Fuller was unfairly targeted by a gambling probe because of his celebrity, his attorney told a jury Thursday, Jan. 27. Fuller was arrested last April when police broke up a high-stakes card game at his Tallahassee home. Fuller was charged with maintaining a gambling house, use of a firearm in commission of a felony and misdemeanor gambling. "The evidence is going to show the reason we're here is not what Mr. Fuller did, but who Mr. Fuller is," defense attorney Tim Jansen said in his opening statement. "Their investigation was detailed to target Mr. Fuller." If convicted, Fuller could face a maximum five-year sentence and $5,000 fine.
