On Thursday, Howard Stern and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich were found guilty on charges of using false names to provide Anna Nicole Smith with drugs. With Stern’s permission, Eroshevich used Stern’s name, as well as other names, to get Vicodin prescriptions to Smith. The prosecution showed that Stern and Eroshevich used false names to hide Smith’s excessive prescriptions from the state’s monitoring system. The prosecution further argued that the doctors wanted to be part of Smith’s entourage, so they never said no to her drug-seeking.
Sentencing for the two defendants will be determined on January 6. They could each face a maximum of three years in prison.
