Judgment Day for Howard K. Stern

1/6/2011 12:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Howard K. Stern just arrived at the downtown L.A. criminal courthouse for his sentencing in the Anna Nicole Smith drug conspiracy trial.

Stern, and Khristine Eroshevich -- who accompanied him to court -- were both convicted of conspiring to use a false name for Anna to get prescription drugs.

The prosecution -- surprisingly -- is not asking for jail time.  After pursuing the pair with a vengeance, prosecutors are asking for probation and community service.

Seems like an unusual turn of events, considering as described above, how the prosecution went after him with a passion.

Celebrity Justice? Hmmmm... makes one more convinced that money and fame purchases freedom.

I agree with #4.........how many of us have been enablers!!!!
Howard is only guilty of loving tooooooooo deeply and doing
everything he could to please her. She refused rehab and how
many of you could watch someone you love go thru the thros of
withdrawal without help. Are you aware that a person could die
trying to do that????

Why not just probation? I mean, it's not is if they are talking about Blacks or Hispanics. These are White people. I call it the Lindsey Lohan effect. If you're White, jail is not for you.

Probation is not near enough punishment for the crimes he committed, and acquiring the drugs by illegal means!!??!?! He should be facing Manslaughter charges just like the Quack Murry! I know he didn't literally kill her like Murry did with MJ, but he enabled her, even coaxed her into taking the drugs, and that is just as bad if you ask me... ROT IN HELL HOWARD, ROT IN HELL!

They all get away with murder. Same for Dr. Murray.

Good. HKS does not belong in jail. Its ridiculous. Anna did this to herself and his only crime was being an enabler because he couldn't get past his crazy love for her and fear of her cutting him out of her life if he did not do what she said. It's time to start blaming the addicts for their actions, not the people around them.

I think he had something to do with Daniel's death in addition.

Hello TMZ...talk about a lack of updating. Bombshell...judge has thrown out all the convictions toward Howard K. Stern (2 conspiracy charges) and at least one charge toward (so far)against Dr.Khristine Eroshevich (1 conspiracy charges).

What in the Hell is the point of spending all of that money to prosecute him, only to ask for probation and community service? What a joke. Another celeb walks away from the law without paying the price for their crime. Justice is not just.

Can you imagine someone going through at least 5 grades worth of high school and still posting the above?

No doubt TMZ devotees are probably on the lower scale of IQ but...WOW...ok let's start....it's THROW..not THROUGH...and it's
LEECH not LEACH unless you're referring to Robin Leach. I tend to doubt it.
