Howard K. Stern Convicted of Contributing to Death of Anna Nicole Smith

by at . Comments

Howard K. Stern has been found guilty of contributing to the death of Anna Nicole Smith, his former client, confidant and longtime cash cow.

A Los Angeles Superior Court convicted Smith's ex-lover on two counts of conspiracy today - giving false names and acting by fraud to obtain prescriptions - determining that he helped fuel the late starlet's fatal drug habit.

Dr. Khristine Eroshevich was also convicted of four charges; while another physician who treated her, Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, was cleared on all counts.

Looks like Howard K. Stern is off to prison.

Sentencing for both parties is scheduled for January 6, but D.A. spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said outside of court this afternoon that "both defendants are looking at possible maximum of at least three years in state prison."

The D.A's office still has the opportunity to reduce or limit sentencing to some of the misdemeanor charges. Whether that happens is another story.

Stern was a longtime attorney for Smith and spent many weeks arguing that he, not Larry Birkhead, was the father of Anna Nicole's daughter, Dannielynn.

He was acquitted on seven other charges, including unlawfully prescribing a controlled substance and obtaining a prescription for an opiate using false info.

It appeared the case, which the jury deliberated nearly two weeks, was headed for a mistrial as recently as this morning, but the jury came to a consensus.

That is correct, Stern was not found guilty of contributing to the death of Anna Nicole Smith, that is a very serious offense.

Hilton Hater. If you are going to provide information to readers, you better be careful and get your facts straight. Stern was not convicted of contributing to the death of Anna Nicole Smith. That's a serious accusation. He was convicted of having her prescriptions put in his name. Quite a difference, don't you think?
