Howard K. Stern, Anna Nicole Smith's lawyer/boyfriend, found guilty of conspiracy in her death
On Thursday a jury convicted Howard K. Stern, Anna Nicole Smith's longtime lawyer/boyfriend, of consipring to help Smith obtain illegal substances by fraud and giving a false name for a prescription.
Smith's psychiatrist, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, was also found guilty on conspiracy charges and, according to the Associated Press, "convicted on two separate counts of unlawfully prescibing and obtaining Vicodin through fraud and use of a false name."
Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, who provided Smith with painkillers including Vicodin, was acquitted of charges that he had prescribed excessive drugs to an addict.
"This is not just a victory for me, but for patients everywhere who suffer chronic pain," said Kapoor outside the courthouse.
Stern was acquitted of seven of the 11 charges originally lodged against him. Sentencing likely won't happen until January.
