Anna Nicole Smith Attorney Howard K. Stern Going To Jail??

Anna Nicole Smith Attorney Howard K Stern Facing More Charges

It's been 2 years since Howard K. Stern was cleared of 9 felonies but convicted of conspiracy for his contribution to the death of Anna Nicole Smith.

Stern allegedly used a fake name to acquire prescription drugs for the late actress.

The good news for Stern at the time was that the judge in the case did not feel there was enough evidence for a conspiracy conviction and threw it out.

The bad news for Stern at this time is that an appellate panel disagrees. They wrote in their decision:

"His knowledge and involvement was such the jury could reasonably conclude Mr. Stern, a lawyer, knowingly participated in the ongoing illegal practice of securing illegal prescriptions."

The panel must now decide whether to dismiss the charges entirely and for good, or to sentence Stern based on the original conviction.

Stern will have to sweat it out as the panel decides.

    "Anna" was talentless greedy bimbo who used and abused people and then discarded them like a tissue. She brought misery to everybody; they either died or ended up in prison or were hurt legally and financially.Birkhead said at Inquest she gave her son drugs, Anna's nanny said to Police she starved her baby to make her sexy.Anna had no love or respect for anybody, H. Marshall gave her $7m in cash - she gave him bad food, brought lover into his home and drugged him with Valium.

    I can't believe that poor guy is going to jail. Like she wasn't and wouldn't have been a drug addict all by herself.

    If I was a tax payer in Calif I would be pissed! This has been going on forever, the judge hated this case from the start- thats most likely why he dismissed the charges- and I think that the biggest punishemnt Stern will end up getting is misdemeanors. All that wasted tax payers money for misdemeanors?! Really prosecutors?!

    Preze- If in the end the worst punishment Stern gets is misdemeaors please write an article about how much the DA's office wasted in tax payers money simple because they wanted to be able to say that got ANS's lawyer and doctors

    Stern was guilty then and the judge was outrageous and should step down.
    The judge threw out legitimate charges and then changed the verdict of the Jury.
    How crazy is THAT? The judge should have stepped DOWN for his travesty of justice.
    Stern should serve time. RIP Anna and Daniel.

    Perez, when are you going to get over your Larry Birkhead crush and stop giving him such a pass for his constant exploitation of Dannielynn??
