A Las Vegas judge set an Oct. 13 arraignment date for a former deputy Clark County district attorney accused of buying crack cocaine.
Prosecutors also added a felony charge of possessing an unregistered firearm to the case against 47-year-old David Schubert.
Schubert was arrested March 19 in the neighborhood of Lisbon Avenue and Cambridge Street, east of the Las Vegas Strip.
The neighborhood is known for drug activity, police said. According to an arrest report, an officer spotted Schuberts white BMW and watched as a man got into the car and was driven to an apartment to buy crack cocaine.
The man, Raymond Streeter, later told police that he had facilitated drug purchases for Schubert for months, according to the report.
Schubert had been one of the most high-profile faces in the district attorneys office, and had prosecuted drug cases involving celebrities Paris Hilton and Bruno Mars.
He was charged with drug possession and conspiracy, but the weapons charge was added Thursday after police said they found a gun in his car.
Schubert resigned following his arrest.
