Anna Nicole Smith


Dr. Sandeep Kapoor was acquitted on all counts, Khristine Eroshevich is guilty of four counts of obtaining medication through fraud, and Howard K. Stern is convicted of two conspiracy counts.

Anna Nicole Smith's longtime doctor and friend Khristine Eroshevich has been convicted of conspiracy in the model/actress' 2007 drug death. Smith's lawyer and companion Howard K. Stern has also been found guilty on some charges at a trial alleging the pair conspired to prescribe prescription drugs to an addict.

A Los Angeles jury returned mixed verdicts on Thursday afternoon, October 28 in the two-month drug trial. The jury members found psychiatrist Eroshevich guilty of four counts of obtaining medication through fraud, but were left deadlocked on two additional charges of illegally obtaining controlled substances for an addict.

Stern was found not guilty on seven counts of obtaining and providing drugs to an addict, but he was convicted of two conspiracy counts of aiding and abetting. Both Eroshevich and Stern face prison time. Sentencing is scheduled for January 6. A third defendant, Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, was acquitted on all counts.

Attorneys for Stern, Kapoor and Eroshevich argued during the trial that each of their clients were acting in Smith's best interests and helping someone with documented pain and depression. Smith died following a prescription drug overdose in a Florida hotel in February, 2007.
