Lawyer: Anna Nicole's Ex a Victim, Not a Felon

People: The Florida attorney who represented Howard K. Stern two years ago in the tug-of-war over the remains of Anna Nicole Smith says he's a victim, not a felon.

"The television, tabloid and Internet trial of Mr. Stern in the court of public opinion has been based on sensational lies, speculation, rumor and gossip," Krista Barth claims in a statement to Entertainment Tonight. "Unfortunately, it appears that criminal charges have now been brought by the state of California based on this same type of misinformation."

California Attorney General Jerry Brown told a news conference Friday that Stern was the "enabler" in a conspiracy to feed Smith's drug addiction. Stern, 40, and two doctors were charged Thursday with felonies for allegedly furnishing illegally obtained prescription drugs to the Playboy model prior to her overdose death.

Anna Nicole started to abuse alcohol and drugs when she was a teenager.She was in rehab center after a drug overdose in 1995.She started to abuse painkillers and sedatives after breast operations.That was before she met Howard in 1997.
Anna Nicole was sexually abused in childhood.Virgie Arthur’s ex husbands sexually abused her.Her mother Virgie didn’t do anything to protect her.That’s why she didn’t have any contact with Virgie.Anna was tormented woman.She had a difficult childhood, sex abuse, death of the son.She abused sedatives in order to ease the anguish she felt.Anna was a middle aged woman who couldn’t find her place in the world she lived.She was lost soul.Nobody could have helped such person.

Anna Nicole was out of her mind and everyone knew it. I adored Anna but the truth is that for years she had been struggling with her addiction and I’m sorry to say Howard kept everyone away that might have been able to help her. Truth be told she had no desire o have anyone In her life tha was not going to help her get drugs. Why do you think she ran from Larry for when she knew he wasn’t going to keep her secret.
