A former top drug prosecutor who handled the Paris Hilton and Bruno Mars cocaine possession plea deals in Las Vegas has been sentenced to nine months in jail in his own felony cocaine possession case.
Clark County District Court Judge Carolyn Ellsworth sternly chastised former Deputy District Attorney David Schubert Monday and called a plea deal that would have gotten him probation and a chance to clear his record "offensive."
Schubert pleaded guilty in September to felony drug possession.
Another judge took himself off the case in December, saying he didn't agree with the plea deal.
Schubert quit the prosecutor's office and underwent substance abuse counseling after his arrest last March with a $40 rock of crack cocaine.
The judge set a March 12 date for Schubert to report to jail.
