Howard K. Stern Ain't Dealing With D.A.

4/7/2009 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Howard K. SternHoward K. Stern won't cut a deal with the D.A. in the Anna Nicole Smith drug case, and sources tell us the only reason he'll plead not guilty is because there's no such thing as a plea of innocent.

Our sources say Stern will show up in court for his scheduled arraignment today, but the matter will likely be continued. But when he does enter a plea it will be a loud "not guilty" to all felony drug and conspiracy charges.

This case is the opposite of Chris Brown's, where Mark Geragos and the prosecutor are wheeling and dealing. We're told Stern wants a fight to the end, because he believes he did absolutely nothing wrong.

The arraignment is set for 8:30 AM PT, and, of course, we'll be live streaming.

Stay tuned ...

that 'razzo is a RAT.    

People who think that just because a man didn't abandon someone who was a drug addict then the man is responsible for that someone's addiction and should be punished are really f**ked up. There seem to be a lot of you out there. I bet you blame your mom because you didn't get into that school you wanted to get into, or you blame your dad for you being so detached from society because he didn't hug you as a child, or you blame your parents because you're 800lbs and bedridden and they bring you McDonalds for every meal because they know you'll pitch a fit if you come in contact with a steamed vegetable - you're fat in it's THEIR fault, right? You can't say you don't want 5 Big Macs for lunch and you'll take a salad instead, but that's because of SOMEONE ELSE, not because of you, right? Every problem in your life is SOMEBODY else's fault, right? They did it to you, right? You have NO CHOICE in the matter, right? Nope, not you. You aren't free to decide what you put in your mouth - and nobody else is either, RIGHT!?! THEY made you the miserable shut in that you are today, and since you can't do anything to punish THEM, you are salivating at the prospect that SOMEONE will be punished for SOMETHING, even though they're innocent of any crime. The only thing that HKS is guilty of is loving ANS too much.

Take responsibility for your life. Your miserable existence is ALL YOUR FAULT and ANNA'S drug addiction was ALL HER FAULT, nobody else's. HERS. When YOU die, nobody's going to be taking the blame for your death. You're the one who didn't get off your fat ass to get the help you need, Nobody should be blamed for Anna's death except ANNA.

Those doctors, yes, they need to be punished for over-prescribing, but the guy who sometimes PICKED UP the prescriptions didn't do anything wrong. You know how many people picked up prescriptions for ANNA? When are they going to be charged with picking up a drug addicts' prescriptions that were written by a doctor and filled by a pharmacist?

WAKE UP, PEOPLE. You're all Anna's in the making, but if you're an addict, it's because of YOUR choices, no one else's.

Q    

Personally, I don't think the guy should be convicted of anything. I agree with #7. Sure the PRESCRIBER should be in trouble for his excessive/combination prescriptions but sadly Ms. Smith was a drug addict. If Mr. Stern wasn't around someone else would have been.

HOWARD'S MOTIVE FOR MURDER WAS THE MONEY AND CONTROL OF DANNIELYNN'S ESTATE, IF AND WHEN IT WAS PAID OUT BY THE LATE HUSBAND OF ANNA NICOLE SMITH-----A BIG IF
ALSO, ROYALTIES FROM THE INCOME OF ANNA NICOLE
ONE REASON HE LIED ABOUT BEING THE FATHER. ONCE HE IS CONVICTED, THE TRIAL FOR MARSHALL'S MONEY WILL HAVE TO BE TURNED OVER TO A NEW LAWYER WHO DOES NOT HAVE ANY CONVICTIONS AND THAT LAWYER WILL SETTLE WITH THE FAMILY
SOUNDS LIKE THE GRAVY TRAIN HAS RUN OUT OF STEAM- LARRY AND HOWARD

Nathan Collins is claiming that he frequently saw Howard K. Stern, the lawyer and alleged lover of Anna Nicole Smith, inject the former reality TV star with Phenegram, an anti-nausea medication. According to Canada.com, Collins also claims that Stern kept Smith well stocked with a variety of prescription drugs like Xanax, Vicodin, and methadone.

Just look at his eyes and you see a cold calculating evil man. That blank stare in all his pictures tells me that Howard K. Stern cannot be trusted.....reminds me of charles manson.

If Anna was so in charge of herself, she should have been able to get her own drugs. Why did howie have to buy them? If you know someone is already an addict, why would you not only get their drugs, but buy them in HUGE quantities ? The amounts were way beyond what a regular drug addict would take to feel high. Okay,lets just say Anna was responsible for all the prescriptions,although she was too out of it near the end to know how much or what she was taking, still why didn't howard get her medical help when she was dying? Also how did he end up with all her stuff, and why the clown tape? There are just too many questions. His supporters have their heads in the sand!

no empathy; So you believe Larry. That's great because Larry said a lot of bad things about howie. I don't remember it all, but he said howard kept Anna drugged and stole money from her. I'm sure someone else would be glad to list the things Larry said about howard. Glad to have you on our side!!!
