Dismissal in Anna Nicole case appealed

2011-09-13 15:31
 

Los Angeles - Prosecutors have filed an appeal trying to reinstate three convictions against Anna Nicole Smith's boyfriend and her psychiatrist.

The two conspiracy counts against Dr Khristine Eroshevich and Howard K Stern involved the use of false names to obtain prescription pain medications for the former Playboy model in the final months of her life.

Eroshevich was convicted of one count of obtaining Vicodin under a false name.

Superior Court Judge Robert Perry found that the defendants were trying to protect Smith's name as a celebrity. He dismissed the conspiracy counts and reduced the one conviction against Eroshevich to a misdemeanour. Most of the 11 charges resulted in acquittals.

Prosecutors argued in the appeal that Perry was biased against them and had created a celebrity exception to the law.
