Anna Nicole Smith's Doctor Begs Judge to Drop Charges Against Him


Anna Nicole Smith


Dr. Sandeep Kapoor files papers asking judge to drop several charges against him in a California court, insisting he used a pseudonym for the model's prescriptions to protect her privacy.

One of the doctors accused of illegally supplying Anna Nicole Smith with prescription pills has filed papers asking a judge to drop some of the charges against him. Dr. Sandeep Kapoor is alleged to have conspired with Dr. Khristine Eroshevich and Smith's former lawyer/boyfriend Howard K. Stern to provide the late model with drugs before her death from an accidental overdose in February 2007.

All three have pleaded not guilty to a total of 23 felony charges. Kapoor's legal team has now lodged a request to have several of the charges against him dropped, filing papers at a court in California. He claims he began prescribing pills to Smith before he met Eroshevich and later refused to sign off a prescription list which Eroshevich handed to him, according to TMZ.com.

He is also challenging the allegation that he obtained drugs for the star by "fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation," insisting he used a pseudonym for Smith's prescriptions in a bid to protect her privacy. If a judge grants the request, Kapoor will still face four other charges.
