Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Anna Nicole Smith's boyfriend has been convicted of conspiracy in a case in which he and two doctors were accused of helping to illegally provide the late model with prescription drugs. According to the Los Angeles Times, Howard K. Stern was convicted Thursday by a Los Angeles jury of two conspiracy counts of aiding and abetting doctors. He was found not guilty of charges that he obtained and provided drugs to an addict.

Smith's psychiatrist, Khristine Eroshevich, was convicted of four counts of obtaining medication by fraud. The jury was deadlocked on other charges. Another doctor, Sandeep Kapoor, was acquitted of all charges. Stern and Eroshevich, who face prison time, will be sentenced January 6th.

The verdict was the culmination of a nine-week trial. Smith died of an accidental drug overdose in Florida in February 2007.
