After having one felony charge against her dropped and the other reduced to a misdemeanor pertaining to her care of Anna Nicole Smith, psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich is now facing new charges that her lawyers claim aren't kosher, reports L.A. Now. Dr. Eroshevich is accused by the California medical board of signing off on paperwork for two people's worker's compensation claims that she never actually saw. The board alleges that the two patients were treated by Eroshevich's colleagues and staff -- one in 2004, and one in 2006 -- despite the fact that Eroshevich filed the paperwork on each of them. According to L.A. Now:

Her lawyer, Bradley Brunon, said he planned to file a response to the accusations refuting the claims, which he said were filed “way too late.” “This is an effort by the medical doard to accomplish through administrative proceedings that they could not do in court,” Brunon said.

The charges were brought by the California attorney general's office. Eroshevich hasn't commented on the case.
