(Carson City, NV) — A former Las Vegas drug prosecutor has lost a round to overturn a nine-month jail sentence for crack cocaine possession.
A trio of Nevada Supreme Court justices rejected David Schubert?s claim that District Judge Carolyn Ellsworth was biased against him during sentencing.
Schubert, who had prosecuted such stars as Paris Hilton and Bruno Mars, pleaded guilty to having 40 dollars in rock cocaine inside his car in March 2011.
His attorney plans an appeal to the full state Supreme Court. Schubert is scheduled to surrender next month.
