Court Reinstates Howard K. Stern Convictions In Anna Nicole Smith Case
Stern was charged with 11 felonies -- most involving conspiracy to fuel Anna Nicole with drugs. At the end of the trial, the jury convicted Stern of 2 felony conspiracy counts but the judge threw both convictions out on grounds there was insufficient evidence to nail Stern.
A California appeals court just ruled the trial judge was wrong, and sent the case back where the trial judge could now sentence Stern to prison for the 2 felonies.
It's not certain what the trial judge will now do, because there are 4 options:
1. The judge could sentence Stern to years in prison
The appellate court also reversed the trial court's dismissal of the conspiracy convictions of Khristine Eroshevich. more on this story
