As previously reported, Howard K. Stern was arrested yesterday for conspiring to provide Anna Nicole Smith with the illegal narcotics that contributed to her death.
But it gets even worse for the former model's former lover: at a news conference today, California Attorney General Jerry Brown said Stern was "the principal enabler" of the thousands of prescription pills that led to Smith's 2007 death.
According to Brown, Stern conspired with Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich in "prescribing drugs excessively to a known addict and using false and fictitious names all in violation of the law and all in furtherance of a conspiracy."
Howard K. Stern and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor are seen here, mug shotted for all to see.
Why would Stern have gone to such dangerous lengths?
"There's a certain psychic gain here, part of the glitz the celebrity and the power," Brown said. "There's a lot of money floating around."
