Judge Criticizes Prosecution In Anna Nicole Case

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?
