Ok, this is a bit awkward. Clark County Deputy District Attorney David Schubert, 47, achieved an element of fame by prosecuting Paris Hilton for cocaine possession. He is now back in the news after being arrested for . . . you guessed it . . . buying crack cocaine.
Clark County District Attorney David Roger said that he is “very disappointed.” Pretty stern stuff. That seems akin to “we’re going through a bad time but we will always have Paris.”
Schubert was seen picking up Raymond Streeter in his white BMW in a neighborhood known for narcotics dealing. Streeter allegedly bought cocaine for Schubert. Streeter said that he only knew Schubert as “Joe” and would buy drugs for him on a regular basis.
This should create some interesting trial issues unless (which is likely) Schubert pleads. A change of venue would seem likely. Moreover, the prosecutors will be under close scrutiny in any plea for any evidence of special treatment or light punishment.
