Nevada Supreme Court allows former prosecutor to stay out of jail

A last-minute order by the Nevada Supreme Court is allowing a former top Las Vegas drug prosecutor to remain out of jail pending challenges of his nine-month sentence for crack possession.

A Tuesday order by the state high court temporarily postponed David Schubert’s scheduled Wednesday surrender before Clark County District Court Judge Carolyn Ellsworth.

A new date wasn’t immediately set.

The court previously rejected Schubert’s claim that the judge was biased against him and abused her discretion at sentencing in February.

Schubert once prosecuted high-profile drug cases, including plea deals with celebrities Paris Hilton and Bruno Mars.

He resigned from the district attorney’s office after being arrested in March 2011 with a $40 rock of cocaine and an unregistered handgun in his car. He pleaded guilty last September.
