And it’s a good thing that it’s not!

Krista Barth, civil attorney for freshly indicted Howard K. Stern, doesn’t like what she’s seen so far in terms of how the authorities are acting.

Barth spoke to and said: “The most important premise is that you are presumed innocent until proven guilty.  It's not what you think about my client, this isn't a popularity contest. These are scurrilous accusations against Howard that are untrue."

Stern and two doctors were recently charged with a total of 11 felony counts related to drugs being supplied to Anna Nicole Smith. He faces up to six years in prison.

Perhaps hinting at a criminal defense tactic, Barth told "The universal truth about Anna Nicole was she was a very strong person, and Anna was in control, no one, including my client could tell her what to do.”

Barth is also concerned that California’s Attorney General Jerry Brown called Stern a “principle enabler.” Sadi Barth: "I have no idea why the Attorney General is involved in this case. It's going to be very hard for my client to get a jury of his peers after what Bown said.”
