In what could be a troubling sign for the District Attorney in the Anna Nicole Smith drug case, the jury has two important questions for the judge, RadarOnline.com has learned.
According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, the first question is: “What should we do if we are unable to come to a verdict on a count or an object crime?” This could be a bad sign indicating the jury could be deadlocked on certain charges against the trio.
The second question they are asking is: “If a juror were to believe that prescriptions were written in excessive amounts, does it follow that these prescriptions also have no legitimate medical purpose?”
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Perry is expected to direct the jurors regarding their questions at 1:30 pm PT.
This is the jury’s 12th day of deliberations.
As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, Smith’s former attorney Howard K. Stern, psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich and medical internist Sandeep Kapoor are charged with conspiring to prescribe, administer and give substances to an addict.
All three have pleaded not guilty to to the charges. They are not charged in Smith’s 2007 accidental overdose death.
