Judge dismisses some charges in Anna Nicole case

LOS ANGELES AP) -- The judge in the Anna Nicole Smith drug conspiracy case has acquitted her boyfriend-lawyer Howard Stern of two charges of obtaining drugs for her by fraud and deceit including use of false names.  

Superior Court Judge Robert Perry also dismissed part of a conspiracy count against Stern and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, ruling there was insufficient proof that the two men conspired to obtain controlled drugs through fraud and deceit.  

Perry allowed the balance of that conspiracy charge to stand and ruled the bulk of the 11-count complaint would go to the jury for a decision.  

Stern, Kapoor and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich have pleaded not guilty to conspiring to prescribe, administer and dispense a controlled substance to an addict.
