Howard K. Stern, 2 Docs: We're Not Guilty!

5/13/2009 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Howard K. Stern and two doctors, Khristine Eroshevich and Sandeep Kapoor, just pled not guilty to a pile of charges in the Anna Nicole Smith drug case.

The dynamic trio have each been charged with 6 felonies -- after a massive investigation that led prosecutors to charge that they funneled drugs to Smith in the years leading up to her death.

All three defendants had no problem with giving the D.A. handwriting samples that cops could use in determining who signed what prescriptions.

Arraignment of HKS/K/E 5-13-09

• United in a common defense - the truth

All three affirm pleas of ‘not guilty’ and as HKS’s main Attorney Steve Sadow stated after the proceeding:

"Every one of the people in this case contends that there was no crime, because in fact, there was no crime."

Sadow provided the insight that he will issue a general demurrer in this case should a preliminary hearing not be successful in having the charges dismissed. 6-8-09 is the day the Court will set a date for a preliminary hearing. A general demurrer would state that even if the acts charged, as written, were all true, those acts do not amount to a crime. This has been discussed at length on previous threads. City Prosecutor Renee Rose opinioned that a preliminary hearing could easily last two weeks – no doubt!

• TX cabal-related docs to remain confidential by Court order for now.

An astounding revelation today was that a 1400-page brief exists for these charges and that some of its contents relate directly to ongoing ‘Smith-related’ cases in NY and TX. We know that material has been funneled by the O’Q/VA operatives from the Cosby and ‘bloggers’ lawsuits and that this material can only be the lies, rumors and innuendos that the TX cabal has defamed HKS and others with for over two years.

More indication that the politically active AG of CA has been suckered into charging people with crimes that don’t exist at the urging of outside agitators with their own nefarious purpose. More indication that HKS/K/E have been targeted for criminal prosecution based on peculiar moral considerations that have no place in the Court room; exemplified by JB’s early derogatory use of the non-legal term ‘chief enabler’ to describe HKS.

• Release the 1400-page brief!

The Cosby and ‘bloggers’ cases are toast, as we see proof that the defamation from Cosby and VA’s people continues; time for the media to inquire with renewed interest what the connection between these two civil cases and the CA criminal case is.

THese sternies are mean people who have no feelings    

If any of you heard the live feed, it appeared to me that HKS' lawyer-man just threw the DR.S UNDER THE BUS ! Stating that HKS is no DR> and the thingy they're charging HKS with is a DR.S' whatchamacallit. The look on DR.SANDADEEP's face says it all.

So here how it will go down, unless the PROSECUTION does some major damage control, is that the DRS. will go to jail, and HKS will be making a A LOT OF NEW ENEMIES in so doing.IMO

HKS made a deal ? I THINK SO !!! Or more correctly HKS DID A LARRY BIRKHEAD BIGTIME ....

Just me you are right, that Marshall money will go to the baby, it may take some time but that case started before Anna died and it has to be played just as if she was still alive.

DonnaG- Immorality is not illegal. Stern will walk, he had no legal control over what she did as an adult. He did not write the prescription, if they were in his name and she took them without his "knowledge" he walks. Anyone can pickup your prescription from the pharmacy. Now the Dr. that's a different story but I am sure she has records that indicate diagnosis that required them. If so, it would have to be up to a medical board to determine if it was excessive or medically necessary. Those arrest are grandstanding by the DA trying to make a name.

Check it out - an example of the charges facing HKS/K/E, Count 4:

"On or between June 9,2004 and September 22,2006, in the County of Los Angeles, the crime of UNLAWFULLY PRESCRIBING A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE, in violation of Section 11153(a), of the Health and Safety Code a Felony, was committed by SANDEEP KAPOOR and HOWARD KEVIN STERN, who did unlawfully issue a prescription for a controlled substance, to wit: AMBIEN, HYDROMORPHONE, DILAUDID, CLONAZEPAM, METHADONE, AND XANAX."

It's not illegal for a Doctor to prescribe those drugs. Dr. K is a licensed Physician without Medical Board restrictions. HKS is not a Physician at all and can't be charged as one.

CA's Medical Board could easily have had its Doctors determine if the drugs were prescribed for a legitimate purpose years ago. Sanctimonious lawyers alleging Medical impropriety is unacceptable in a Court of law. The Doctor-Patient relationship always trumps 'magical thinking', especially when suspect public officials are trying to ride a celebrity 'cause' for their own benefit.

How do you know if Howard didn't write scripts?

He very well could have.

As a lawyer Howard knew it was against the law to have drugs in his name and give them to Anna!

He knew!

He will be found guilty!

7. NOT A SINGLE ONE OF THESE DEFENDANTS TRIED TO DO ANY HARM TO ANNA!

All of these charges against them is from people who are trying to get Howard out of the way!
TX wants the Marshall $. This was proven by Anna's mom on TV over and over!
She wants Larry to sign her rights to have a say in that child's estate.
Virgie has sued how many people? How many times? I believe it is 5 times now.
Virgie is now pulling TMZ and Larry into a false allegation suit in TEXAS!
Ford Shelley and group do not want the Estate to continue to prosecute them for theft.
Rit wants out of her court case in NY.

There is no proof any of these people tried to harm anyone.
Anna called the shots.
If anything they were trying to help her.

I agree, JustMe.

The Prosecutor has no facts so she argues laws that don't apply to any of the defendants. Physicians can prescribe controlled substances for indicated purposes and people like HKS can't prescribe at all.

Bring on the preliminary hearing - let's see what the Prosecution purports as facts. Who says:

- ANS was a 'known addict' - what does that mean and who 'knew' it or confirmed it?
- no known medical problems? - ridiculous on the face of it.
- since when can Doctors NOT treat so-called 'known addicts' anyway?
- and on and on as we have discussed before.

The charges read the same as Speer's fabrications and McCabe/VA's baseless claims and FS's rants - and they are all collaborators - so it cannot be a coincidence.

Where's the 'meeting of the minds' (the conspiracy) - who came up with that claim independently in the DA's Office? Where's the motive (the quid pro quo) for a lawyer and two doctors to harm ANS? Where are the eye-witnesses and first-hand accounts that in any way support these charges against HKS/K/E?

We recall that the civil lawsuits from HKS have yielded a mountain of exculpatory evidence from real people who actually knew ANS and her people or were involved in extraordinary medical and legal investigations surrounding her death and whose declarations and statements and reports contradict the criminal charges and their underlying claims.

Release that 1400-page brief now and let's see who HKS/K/E's REAL accusers are.

They have the doctors records to know if there was a known med. cond. or not.

It was the treatment that is against the law swim! Thousands and thousands of pills to a known addict.


Oh and on your on and on..... 6 felony charges!

Ana Nicole was a sweet person and they are investigating if the drugs where provided regardless of the law just to be able to puppet her life. we can see that she had a relationship with her daughters father so i am inclined to say she was able to sneak away from her so called friends.

she had enough assets for her so called lover to want to keep her in the clouds with drugs....... it would be interesting to see who exactly had access to her money,,, did she pay her own bills..... how much money was howard spending on the side without her knowing??????????

i am very glad that Larry is her daughters father........ this keeps howards hands of her daughters estate.

the death of her son is another mistery????? was he given these drugs so that he would not give advice to his mother or voice his objections?????????????

mother and son died from drugs made available to them................. someone is going to jail just like the wrestlers doctors that are now serving time.
