California Attorney General Jerry Brown said at a press conference today that Howard K. Stern was the “principal enabler” in regards to Anna Nicole Smith’s prescription drug abuse that lead to her 2007 death.
Brown said Stern, 40, conspired with Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, 40, and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, 61, in “prescribing drugs excessively to a known addict and using false and fictitious names all in violation of the law and all in furtherance of a conspiracy.”
Brown also is not ruling out that these Stern may be charged with her death.
“I hold him responsible for all the charges contained in this pleading,” he said. “I’m not excluding anything, but I’m confining myself to just the 11 counts as stated in the papers that were presented.”
The charges that the Los Angeles police are charging them with are
conspiracy, unlawfully prescribing a controlled substance and prescribing, administering or dispensing a controlled substance to an addict.
Both Stern and Dr. Kapoor were released on Thursday after posting $20,000 bond. Dr. Eroshevich is expect to wait until after this weekend to turn herself in on Monday.
What do you think? Can Stern and the doctors even be charged with her death in California since it happened in Florida?
