And perhaps it takes a coke fiend to prosecute a coke fiend. Las Vegas Deputy D.A. David Schubert, who prosecuted Paris Hilton and Bruno Mars for cocaine possession, was arrested last weekend for cocaine possession.According to the arrest report, Schubert was seen in a neighborhood known as a drug haven, where he picked up a fellow named Raymond Streeter and drove to an apartment complex, where Streeter then (allegedly) bought $40 worth of cocaine for Schubert. Police then pulled over Schubert's BMW and found cocaine in the car.
He's been suspended and will almost certainly be fired. I've known some pretty good attorneys who abused cocaine. Some ended up ruining their careers, and others remained million dollar lawyers. I suspect Schubert will be one of the former.
