Los Angeles, CA – October 28, 2010
Anna Nicole Smith’s partner, Howard K Stern, was found guilty of two counts of conspiracy for procuring prescription medications for Anna Nicole Smith using his own name.
A Los Angeles jury convicted Stern for conspiring to prescribe prescription drugs using fraudulent means and conspiring to furnish prescription drugs to an addict.
The jury dismissed seven other charges against Stern.
Besides Stern, two doctors – Khristine Eroshevich, 62, a psychiatrist and Sandeep Kapoor, 42, who specializes in internal and geriatric medicine – were also charged with multiple felonies for allegedly conspiring to furnish prescription drugs to an addict.
The jury convicted Eroshevich of four charges, but cleared Sandeep Kapoor of all counts.
