LAS VEGAS – The former Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles, who is on trial for the murder of an investigative journalist, is back in court for a hearing on whether or not to have his private attorney withdraw from the case.
On Tuesday morning, a judge will hear Telles, 46, present a motion to dismiss his attorney. Telles is being detained without bond on charges of murder in connection with the September 2022 death of Las Vegas Review-Journal journalist Jeff German.
The prosecution claims that Telles singled out German for persecution due to his reporting on corruption within the court administrator’s office
Telles’ lawyer said in a filing earlier this month that his client preferred to act as his own counsel.
In November, his trial will begin.
