One of the shady doctors charged in the Anna Nicole Smith drug case claims prosecutors have no evidence he conspired to pump her full of drugs.
As a result of this "misunderstanding," Dr. Sandeep Kapoor wants the judge to throw out some charges he faces in the late model's 2007 death.
Kapoor's lawyer, Ellyn Garofalo, filed legal papers asking the judge to reject the prosecution's claim that Kapoor teamed up with Howard K. Stern.
The accusation: Kapoor, Stern and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich made a conscious effort to fuel Anna Nicole Smith with drugs that ultimately killed her.
As usual, it's a very fine line and difficult to prove.
IN SANDEEP $H!T: Dr. Kapoor allegedly broke many laws.
Dr. Sandeep Kapoor claims he prescribed drugs for Anna before he met Eroshevich, even refusing to fill a prescription list Eroshevich faxed him.
Kapoor also challenges authorities' allegations of his obtaining Anna's 'scripts by "fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation," according to the filing.
In the court papers, Kapoor acknowledges filling a prescription for Anna under a pseudonym, but he claims he only did so to protect her privacy.
Not, as prosecutors say, to "divert drugs for illegal sale or use." Of course, the long list of felonies he's charged with is unlikely to be fully tossed.
Three years have passed since Smith's death, and more may follow before this case - making the Dr. Conrad Murray case seem simple - is resolved.
