No Conviction for Anna Nicole Smith's Lawyer Howard K. SternA judge dismissed the drug conspiracy convictions of the late Anna Nicole Smith's boyfriend and lawyer, Howard K. Stern, and her psychiatrist on Thursday, allowing only one conviction to remain against the psychiatrist while reducing it to a misdemeanor. Superior Court Judge Robert Perry found that Stern never had the intent to defraud when he used his name and others to protect Smith's privacy when he obtained prescriptions for her.

The judge decided to set aside all but one conviction against the psychiatrist, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, who was charged with having a role in Smith's death. The lone conviction was reduced to a misdemeanor, to which she'll pay a $100 fine and serve some time on probation.

Back in October, Stern, 41, was convicted of conspiracy for helping Smith obtain a controlled substance by fraud and for providing a false name for a prescription. Eroshevich was found guilty of conspiring with Stern on the fraud and false name charges, and was also convicted of unlawfully prescribing and obtaining Vicodin through fraud and use of a false name.
