LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A former Clark County deputy district attorney will be sentenced Nov. 17 after taking a plea deal in a cocaine possession case.

David Schubert was arrested March 19 in a neighborhood east of the Las Vegas Strip. According to police, the 48-year-old was dropping off and picking up a man who later admitted he was buying drugs for Schubert.

Schubert pleaded guilty to "unlawful possession of a controlled substance not for the purpose of sale," according to a court spokesperson.

He resigned from his position following his arrests.

Schubert's story gained national attention because he had been the prosecutor in drug cases against celebrities Paris Hilton and Bruno Mars. Both took plea deals to avoid jail time.
