(Newser) – A jury today convicted Anna Nicole Smith's psychiatrist and boyfriend of conspiring to use false names to obtain prescription drugs for the former model and reality TV star but acquitted the doctor who prescribed a plethora of drugs for her. The only conviction against Smith's boyfriend-lawyer Howard K. Stern (no, not the radio guy) was for giving false names and acting by fraud to obtain prescriptions. He was acquitted of seven other charges and said the lone conviction came for trying to protect Smith's privacy.

Along with conspiracy, psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich was convicted of unlawfully prescribing Vicodin by fraud. The jury deadlocked on several counts against her. They're both free pending a January hearing in which the defense can file a motion for a new trial. If the motion is denied, the judge can sentence both defendants, but it was not immediately clear how much prison time, if any, they could face. Dr. Sandeep Kapoor was acquitted of all charges. The defendants were not charged in Smith's 2007 accidental overdose death in Florida. (Read more Anna Nicole Smith stories.)
