Stern, 2 Docs Charged in Anna Nicole Drug Case

3/13/2009 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Howard K. Stern turned himself in last night -- he was arrested and charged, along with two other doctors, for allegedly conspiring to fuel an addict with prescription drugs -- and the addict was Anna Nicole Smith.

Stern and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor (above right) and Khristine Eroshevich are being charged with a total of eight felonies.

Sandeep Kapoor: Click to watchAccording to the L.A. County D.A., the conspiracy counts allege the three defendants conspired to furnish controlled substances to Smith between July, 2004 and January 2007.

Stern and Kapoor were charged with one count of unlawfully prescribing a controlled substance. Eroshevich and Stern were charged with unlawfully prescribing a controlled substance between June 2004 and January 2007.

Kapoor and Eroshevich were each charged with obtaining a prescription for opiates by "fraud, deceit or misrepresentation." They were both also charged with one count of obtaining a prescription for opiates by giving a false name or address.

Kapoor and Stern were also charged with one count of "prescribing, administering or dispensing a controlled substance to an addict." Eroshevich was charged with the same crime for separate prescriptions.

Bail is recommended at $20,000 for each defendant. We know both Stern and Kapoor bailed out Thursday night.

As we first reported, California drug officials recently raided the Los Angeles office of Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, looking for evidence against Stern.

Stern has denied doing anything illegal in connection with drugs and Anna Nicole.

The pictures below -- obtained by TMZ -- were taken in Anna Nicole's bedroom in the Bahamas, shortly after she died. It was stocked with methadone (5 mg per 5 ml), along side Slim-Fast. The Slim-Fast is ironic since Anna was a TRIMSPA spokesperson.

TMZ had obtained docs showing that 13 days before Anna Nicole Smith gave birth to Dannielynn, Dr. Kapoor wrote a prescription for methadone. It was written to Michelle Chase, an alias Anna used.

"Talking about Virgie Arthur will not change the fact that Howard gave Anna the drugs that killed her and he has been arrested. Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha! I'M SO GLAD HOWARD IS GOING TO FINALLY GET HIS DOSE OF MEDICINE. HOWARD IS SICK, VERY SICK!!!!!!!

Pitter just ignore these dummies, the fact that ANNA's family is dysfuntional , like so many families, set up a scenario where HKS and people like him could/did take advantage of an already vulnerable ANNA NICOLE. Had she a solid upbringing , with a mom and dad caring for her , she wouldn't have had such a huge

hole in her soul where the wind blows cold

Virgie is a wonderful mom, she did everything she could for Anna when she saw the trouble ANNA was getting into; Anna was on major drugs that clouded her judgement and made her feel something, instead of the numbness from being abused by all those men who just used her.

I HOPE THEY HANG STERN AND THE 2 DOCS FOR FURNISHING ANNA WITH THOSE DRUGS. I, TOO, BELIEVE THAT STERN HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH DANIELS DEATH. ITS ABOUT TIME SOMETHING WAS DONE TO THESE THAT KEEP FURNISHING ADDICTS WITH THEIR DRUGS. PRESCRIPTION DRUGS ARE JUST AS DEADLY AS THE ONES PEOPLE BUY ON THE STREETS. AND IF WE PROSECUTE THE STREET TRASH WE NEED TO GET ON WITH PROSECUTING THE ONES (DRS) FOR PRESCRIBING PILLS FOR EXTENDING PERIODS OF TIME FOR SAME PERSON WHETHER IN THE REAL NAME OR AN ALIAS. GOOD GOD I HOPE THEY NAIL THEM AND NAIL THEM GOOD. NO SLAP ON THEIR HANDS.

In short, "Anna wore the pants,""

God knows someone had to it for sure her lapdogs HKS and LB couldn't stand up to her , she was too strong willed. All she had to do was start up with the whining and they were putty in her hands , plus she was super annoying oh , no one knew Anna , not really, she was a dual personality type she could turn on a smile at the drop of a hat then become super bitch in a second flat some people thought it was the drugs which caused these sudden mood swings. who really knows ?
She hated men for the years of exploitation she endured at those filthy old men made her do stuff she never ever thought of before, then when she got home she couldn't sleep the night kept coming back like a flashback , then , the only relief she could find was the bottle of sleep meds someone gave her.

I know an attorney watching these cases...If anyone cares, I think Brickhead and his clown attorneys Dope & Dope just fell into Opri's trap... If they went to arbitration, Opri may have had to settle on a compromise. Now she gets a full jury trial where she can recoup her 100,000 loan to Larry and the full legal fees and comissions on the $1,050,000 plus other payments made to Larry by the media. She is not someone to take lightly. I have heard about some bombshells coming Larry's way. The fur is going to fly. Larry admitted he signed a fee aggreement, paid payments and initialed every page. Why did he hitch his wagon to the devil, Howard K. Stern? Larry opted for the short term making a deal with a felon grug pusher, instead of taking the high road, and I don't mean Dr. E's high road! LOL

I FEEL THAT Anna Nicole has been thouh enough. I do not feel as Howard K. stern should be charged or a party of any wrong doing in her death. As with any person if they want medicine/drugs they will get them. Not that I am saing that anna
was on drugs. I feel that the doctors should have been monitored better. The drugs in question have to be reported to EVERYONE, and so that this should not be an issue. It is also a known fact that people in the public often use differant names in order to have some privatcy. It is a shame that people have to go to such lenghts to have some kind o f privatcy.
How can anyone truly think that unless howard K. stern had signed a legal commentment to solely keep and give to Anna Nicole smith her medication that he could be held responiable,when ovr the counter medication were also present and could be obtained any where. There should have be some more No people in her life,they would have been unemployed and had there been more peple supportting helping her,she may have not died at that time,shewas ill,and under more stress than anyone could stand. I know that her untimely death is a very deep loss for many,but I believe that Howard did do all that he could to care for her and loved her deeply.He lost her,Daniel,Dannielynn,thieir life and now he is supposeto pay for something that coud not be stopped.My prayers are with him and dannielynn.No one is holding burkhead for his role in her death.
