Robert Telles speaks from jail

Typical lying Democrat.

Jeff German, 69, was found stabbed to death in front of his home last September on a Saturday morning.

Telles, a Democrat, lost his re-election bid in June’s primary after Jeff German exposed the hostile work environment in the Democrat official’s office.

Jeff German had also recently filed a public records request on emails and text messages between Telles and others in his office, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

According to the Daily Mail, hours before Jeff German was stabbed to death, Robert Telles was told Clark County was going to release private texts and photos with his mistress.

Robert Telles’ DNA was also found underneath Jeff German’s fingernails.

The Democrat official claims all of the evidence against him was either misrepresented or planted.

Telles spoke to KLAS reporters from Clark County Detention Center on Monday and insisted he was framed.

“I need to say that I’m innocent and I was framed,” Telles said.

KLAS reported:

The former elected official accused of killing a journalist claimed Monday that he was framed. Robert Telles, 46, requested a new interview with 8 News Now to give his side of the story.

“I need to say that I’m innocent and I was framed,” Telles said from the Clark County Detention Center.

Telles is accused of killing Las Vegas Review-Journal investigative journalist Jeff German in September 2022. German, 69, had exposed issues in the public administrator’s office under the leadership of Telles, including a possible affair. Telles then lost the Democratic primary.

German was found stabbed to death on Sept. 3 outside his home in the northwest valley, near Tenaya Way and Vegas Drive.

“Mr. German is tragically murdered and now I’m here,” Telles said.

Telles claims that while he still held office, he was working to expose a scam involving estates in which individuals would try to obtain properties of the deceased before their families could. The 8 News Now Investigators have confirmed that authorities are looking into the matter.
