Judge Criticizes Prosecution In Anna Nicole Case

| Filed under: Anna Nicole SmithDrugsLegal Matters


Things are taking quite a dramatic turn in the Anna Nicole Smith case!

A judge in the case against Anna Nicole's doctors and lawyer criticized the prosecution, saying that he does not believe that Anna Nicole was a "pawn in the hands of her handlers and doctors," but that she was a "strong-willed person who ordered people around and was her own boss."

Superior Court Judge Robert Perry stated that the evidence shown so far does not support the argument that Anna Nicole's handlers "kept her in a drugged state to control her and her money," after a jury was shown a videotape of her acting "loopy, wacky, and crazy" at an awards show.

Deputy District Attorney Renee Rose protested, however, saying that she could understand the court's rulings if the case was going to be decided by a judge, "but this is a case for a jury." she said. She added, "It is not our contention that she walked around drug addled for two years."

Judge Perry has decided to no longer show any video footage of Anna Nicole as he says, "She's fairly entertaining and at her voluptuous best…The problem I have with this case is we have a very public figure …. We are a movie-watching, TV-watching nation. And as the defense has said, what we see on television is not always real."

He does have a point about Anna Nicole's life, but it is hard to tell who was controlling her life when it came to drugs. Did she have her own free will or were her doctors and lawyer controlling her every move?

What do U think?

    She was a very strong willed person!!! She decided everything as anyone who really came to know her and followed her life. She absolutely had control over Howard K Stern, he did everything she wanted because he was in love with her. Im sick of people who watched the aftermath say crap about the people around her.

    First! Love Anna Nicole. May she rest in peace!

    I always believed Howard took Anna to the Bahamas to keep her away from Larry and from her son. I have read where Howard ordered the help not to give Anna phone messages from her son, Larry, or her mother. Anna looked clearly drugged on TV when she claimed that Howard was the father of her baby daughter. Howard did all he could after the death of Anna to keep her from being tested. A court had to order Howard to bring her in and it proved he was NOT the father.

    If she had a problem with drugs then OBVIOUSLY she wasn't a strong willed person. DUH !!!

  5. 5

    What finally did her in was the fact that her kid over dosed on her stash of of drugs in the hospital. Hard thing for codependent Howard to let her live with. Doctors and pharmacies are to blame yet again.

    anna nicole was her own person. she did not do what people told her. she told them what to do. she was drug-addled of her own accord! just like MJ!!!! get over it people. this judge couldn't be more correct in his synopsis. she is dead now because she lived her life like that and it was only a matter of time. i am so sick of people judging the one's that were around her (not that they are much of anything, which is why she could CONTROL THEM!). she was infectious in her charm and big tits and people were taken with her. is that a crime?

    Your kidding right? She was in control of her own destiny, just like the rest of us. This is just another prosecution for a publicity hungry prosecutor and will end like most of them do, with a defense verdict. These poor people who are being prosecuted are subject to financial ruin, the risk of jail and their names slandered all for the ego of another. It just sickens me.

    I think this was a very well edited article and the Judge has a point.

  9. 9

    i think she just liked being high and then got addicted and just stayed high. its very easy to become addicted to prescription meds and like the judge said she was her own boss and ordered everyone around and they probably gave/got the drugs for her so they didn't have to listed to her whine anymore!

    I just don't like reading these about Anna Nicole because when you scroll down to try to read it, you're blasted by a big titty shot. I know I can scroll down further, but still it's gross to be bombarded by a dead persons rack. R.I.P Anna.

  11. 11

    You did what she wanted –when she wanted it –the Judge is correct–let it end please

  12. 12

    She's dead. She pretty much died when her son OD'd. Poor thing.

  13. 13

    FINNALY a sensible judge! This case needs to be thrown out and let ANNA RIP. Poor Howard has been through enough- he loved her so much and is totally misunderstood.

  14. 14

    Nonsense, Howard adored and loved her to bits and would have done anything for Anna. He is not guilty of anything except catering to her. He is not the villian here. If you watched her reality show it was so apparent what the dynamics were.

  15. 15

    Yeah they kept her drugged up, but not against her will. It is clear if you ever saw her in an interview or on her show that she loved the rock and roll lifestyle. Im sure she made their lives hell if they ever tried to keep her drugs from her. Why would a ton of different docs participate in keeping her drugged against her will? Such as stupid comment Perez.

  16. 16

    Oh, I so agree. It is very sad that she has passed, but she did it herself. She was nothing but a walking time-bomb. There was no other end for her with the way that she was heading. I was surprised it took as long as it did. Still, a very sad….sad outcome. Let it all rest!

  17. 17

    I agree with the judge. Anna was the one who was in control of herself. She did the drugs on her own. She was a drug addict, they will do anything to get the drugs. Yes, they would be considered enablers and the doctors should not have been suppling the drugs, but she still made the decision to take the drugs.

  18. 18

    may she rest in peace

    They all used each other…just Anna was the one who paid the worst consequences! To bad for her little girl!

  20. 20

    She was Marilyn Monroe all over again. She looked to conventional doctors for help. They gave her drugs. The drugs then controlled her and she became an addict. Yes, she was strong willed but the drugs gave her the strength to want them and what they did for her. Very sad!

  21. 21

    Anna Nicole died because her son died and she couldn't handle it. Period.
    And it still makes me sick knowing how she was treated after he son died. Every one and their brother was coming out of the woodwork to kick her while she was at her lowest point. Including the great larry birkhead

  22. 22

    obviously she was a drug addict. they didnt force the drugs down her throat. come on now
