Prosecutor Facing Drug Charge Quits

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas prosecutor who handled recent drug cases involving Paris Hilton and pop singer Bruno Mars has resigned following his arrest in a crack cocaine case.

Clark County District Attorney David Roger says he accepted David Schubert’s resignation today. 

The 47-year-old Schubert was arrested March 19 after Las Vegas police reported watching him in a white BMW sedan buy $40 worth of rock cocaine in a neighborhood east of the Las Vegas Strip.

Schubert was a 10-year veteran prosecutor and liaison for the last two years to a federal drug task force. He’s free pending a May 19 court date on felony conspiracy and cocaine possession charges.
