Witness recants statements in Anna Nicole case

Sep 3, 2010 6:54:00 PM - thestate.com
LOS ANGELES (AP) - A witness in the Anna Nicole Smith drug conspiracy trial recanted suggestions Friday that he saw defendant Howard K. Stern force drugs on the celebrity model.

Ford Shelley also testified that he never saw Smith abuse drugs, and that he believed her boyfriend-lawyer Stern shouldn't be on trial.

Shelley, whose family became entangled with Smith, was a combative prosecution witness.

"Mr. Shelley, you don't want to be here testifying, do you?" Deputy District Attorney Renee Rose asked.

"No, because I don't think the man ought to be sitting here," Shelley said, looking at Stern across the courtroom.
