Prosecutor in Anna Nicole Smith Case Did Not Return After Lunch Adjournment

Following Larry Birkhead's testimony Monday in which he complained about the conduct of Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Sarah Slice, the prosecutor did not return to the courtroom once the case resumed after lunch. He cited instances in which Slice pressured him and questioned the intelligence of his young daughter Dannielynn.

Defense attorney Ellyn Garofalo said, according to the Associated Press, "We're distressed to learn of this attempt at witness intimidation."

Sandi Gibbons, a spokeswoman for the DA's office, was asked whether Slice would be taken off of this case. According to the AP, she responded, "The matter is being discussed, and no decision has been made as to her further role in this case."
