Howard K. Stern, the deceased Anna Nicole Smith‘s lawyer and a constant presence in her tumultuous life, has been arrested for allegedly furnishing her with the illegal prescription drugs that killed.

People reports that Stern, who once claimed to be the father of Smith’s daughter Danielynn, was arrested in Whitier, CA and charged with conspiring to give drugs to Smith before her death two years ago.

Two doctors, Sandeep Kapoor, 40, and Khristine Eroshevich, 61, were also charged with felonies – having allegedly provided Smith with illegally prescribed medications.

Prosecutors claims that Stern and the doctors conspired to provide Anna with drugs between June 2004 and January 2007, and were also charged with “prescribing, administering or dispensing a controlled substance to an addict.”

Anna died of an overdose in February of 2007 at age 39.

Howard K. Stern is said to be out on $20,000 bail.

The lawyer co-starred with Smith on her E! reality show.
