Howard K. Stern accused of enabling Anna Nicole Smith's drug habit

UPI News Service, 03/14/2009 

California Attorney General Jerry Brown contends attorney Howard K. Stern enabled the late model Anna Nicole Smith in her drug habit.

Brown alleged Stern, Smith's former attorney and lover, obtained various prescription medications for the Playboy model by working with two doctors in Los Angeles, the New York Daily News reported Friday.

"Howard K. Stern is the principal enabler," Brown alleged Thursday.

"Somebody died here," he added, referring to Smith's 2007 death of an overdose at the age of 39. "People think those drug dealers on the street corner are the only threat. People in white smocks in pharmacies and with their medical degrees are a growing threat."

Stern, 40, turned himself over to authorities Thursday to face felony charges for allegedly providing Smith with medications not prescribed to her.

Also charged were Dr. Sandeep Kapoor and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich of Los Angeles.

The Daily News said the three suspects are each facing up to six years in prison if convicted.
