Defense attorney William Terry says Schubert will plead not guilty to the charges. They could get Schubert decades in prison.
The 47-year-old Schubert was arrested March 19 in a white BMW after police reported watching him buy $40 worth of rock cocaine in a neighborhood east of the Las Vegas Strip.
The gun charge stems from an unregistered firearm police found in Schubert’s car.
Schubert had been a top area drug prosecutor. He resigned April 1.
