Howard K. Stern, Anna Nicole Smith’s lawyer and boyfriend at the time of her death in 2007, has been formally charged, along with two doctors, with eight felonies for illegally supplying Smith with prescription drugs and conspiring to “fuel an addict” with those drugs. TMZ reports:
Stern and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor (above right) and Khristine Eroshevich are being charged with a total of eight felonies. According to the L.A. County D.A., the conspiracy counts allege the three defendants conspired to furnish controlled substances to Smith between July, 2004 and January 2007. Stern and Kapoor were charged with one count of unlawfully prescribing a controlled substance. Eroshevich and Stern were charged with unlawfully prescribing a controlled substance between June 2004 and January 2007. Kapoor and Eroshevich were each charged with obtaining a prescription for opiates by “fraud, deceit or misrepresentation.” They were both also charged with one count of obtaining a prescription for opiates by giving a false name or address. Kapoor and Stern were also charged with one count of “prescribing, administering or dispensing a controlled substance to an addict.” Eroshevich was charged with the same crime for separate prescriptions. Bail is recommended at $20,000 for each defendant. We know both Stern and Kapoor bailed out Thursday night.
Let’s not kid ourselves here, Anna Nicole Smith was fuckin crazy. But you can see how she might think her car was a winged seahorse or think a mailbox was holding secrets about her when her boyfriend and a team of doctors were making her shotgun psychotropic meds to keep her under their control. Unlike chloroform, which is perfectly fine. Nobody gets hurt with that. Just ask the girls in the dorm that I break into at night. Or don’t. Because they can’t remember a thing. Hi five!
