For Stanley R. Lerner, a 25-year-old UCLA dropout-turned-entrepreneurial phenom, today could be the day to say goodby to his symbols of success: the fire-engine red Porsche, the champagne fund-raisers, the Beverly Hills office with the black marble and chrome desk, the pricey paintings that hang in his Rodeo Drive gallery. Today, Lerner is scheduled to appear before U.S. District Court Judge Robert Tagasuki to be sentenced on charges of conspiracy to deal cocaine.
