Howard K. Stern, Anna Nicole’s former attorney and boyfriend, along with two Doctors, have been charged with illegally furnishing Anna with prescription drugs. We gotta blame someone for it, I suppose…more from the AP.
Howard K. Stern and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor were released late Thursday after posting $20,000 bond. Charges include conspiracy, unlawfully prescribing a controlled substance and prescribing, administering or dispensing a controlled substance to an addict, authorities said.
“These individuals repeatedly and excessively furnished thousands of prescription pills to Anna Nicole Smith, often for no legitimate medical purpose,” California Attorney General Jerry Brown said in a statement Thursday. His office was expected to release more details about the case at a news conference Friday.
Prosecutors said the doctors gave thousands of prescription drugs — including opiates and sedatives — to Stern, who then gave them to Smith.
