LAS VEGAS (AP) — A judge in Las Vegas set a trial date for a former administrator at Nevada’s largest shelter for domestic violence victims following his arrest on a domestic battery charge.
Robert White II is wasn’t in court Wednesday, and defense attorney Kristina Wildeveld declined to comment outside court about White’s March 5 arrest at his Las Vegas home.

A spokeswoman said Tuesday that White is no longer employed as director of programs and education at The Shade Tree in North Las Vegas.
Shade Tree officials say the organization has a strict screening process for job applicants, and background checks every five years
