Arthur, who made an appearance in court during the course of the trial against the three defendants, was particularly interested in the outcome of Mr. Stern given the history of the pair.

At a press conference following the verdict, Howard K. Stern told reporters on the courthouse steps, “The jury found me not guilty on seven counts - everything related to the appropriateness of the medication, I was acquitted of. Contact my lawyer for any further comments.”

Stern was acquitted of seven other charges and will remain a free man pending appeal.

The one-time attorney is due back in court on January 6 for sentencing.

Anna Nicole died of an overdose in 2007 in a Florida hotel room.
