Las Vegas, NV – Robert Telles, the former Clark County Public Administrator accused of murdering Las Vegas Review-Journal journalist Jeff German, appeared in court on Tuesday for a pre-trial hearing.

Key Points:

  • Telles, who previously represented himself, is now represented by attorney Robert Draskovich.
  • Draskovich presented a motion requesting evidence related to a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department bribery investigation.
  • Prosecutors revealed a previously undiscovered voicemail containing a death threat found on German’s phone during a search.
  • Draskovich, stating the voicemail’s possible connection to another article German wrote, argued for using it as evidence and delaying the trial.
  • While Telles still prefers the March 8th trial date, prosecutors requested additional time to investigate the voicemail and potentially call witnesses.
  • The Las Vegas Review-Journal confirmed progress in reviewing German’s phone but requires further examination before determining what information is relevant for the trial.
  • A follow-up hearing is scheduled for March 6th.
