Stern was charged with conspiring to fuel Anna Nicole Smith's drug habit and was found guilty of 2 counts of conspiracy, but not guilty on 7 other charges.

The judge also ruled psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich was actually acting out of concern for Smith and sentenced her to just one year of probation and a $100 fine for obtaining a Vicodin prescription under a false name.
