Attorneys Prepare For Anna Nicole Smith Trial
Attorneys were setting the stage for the trial of two doctors and the attorney boyfriend of the late Anna Nicole Smith, arguing about what evidence will be allowed in court.
In a hearing Friday, defense attorneys plan to oppose the use of photos of Smith and her psychiatrist nude in a hot tub and a controversial video of Smith in clown face makeup. Prosecutors say she appears to be drugged. Other motions include prosecutors’ opposition to one doctor’s claim that he is being prosecuted because he is gay and East Indian.
The defendants have pleaded not guilty to conspiring to illegally prescribe opiates and sedatives to the former Playboy model. They are not charged with causing her death. Jury questioning begins Monday.
