Anna Nicole connections in Octomom’s hometown

This comes from the Associated Press:

Anna Nicole Smith’s lawyer-turned-boyfriend and a doctor surrendered to face charges that they conspired to provide the Playboy Playmate with thousands of prescription pills before her 2007 fatal overdose. A second doctor also is accused.

Howard K. Stern and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor were released late Thursday after posting $20,000 bond. Charges include conspiracy, unlawfully prescribing a controlled substance and prescribing, administering or dispensing a controlled substance to an addict, authorities said.

They were booked by the Whittier Police Department, according Whittier Police Officer Jason Zuhlke.

Stern and Kapoor were booked by the Whittier Police Thursday night. They each paid $20,000 bail and were released at 9:15, Zuhlke said.

Why the pair were booked in Whittier was not immediately clear.

Dr. Khristine Eroshevich was expected to surrender Monday. Her attorney, Adam Braun, acknowledged Eroshevich wrote some of the prescriptions using fictitious names for Smith, but it wasn’t intended to commit fraud.
