Lawyer, “Da’Quan Bowers Will Be Exonerated”

Although Buccaneers defensive end Da’Quan Bowers has been charged with a felony weapons offense that carries a sentence of 3.5 to 15 years in prison, his attorney sounded an optimistic note in making a statement about the case today.

“After a full and fair investigation of the facts and circumstances regarding this registered firearm Mr. Bowers will be fully exonerated,” attorney Dennis Coppin wrote in an email to the Tampa Tribune.

But while Coppin might think his client will be cleared, the Queens District Attorney’s Office says Bowers already admitted that he was carrying a handgun at LaGuardia Airport.
