    Answer: He was not convicted of anything! DeLorean successfully defended himself against drug trafficking charges, showing that his alleged involvement was a result of entrapment by federal agents. DeLorean was acquitted on all counts, but his company was ruined.

    But the stainless steel DeLorean car was cool!

    <a href="/users/2871/dwayne1716/">@dwayne1716</a> - Partly true!

    Paid 1.8 Million Dollars to have 100 pounds of cocaine brought to the US.

    yes I remember this as I was in the States when all this fired up I know he was suspected of cocain but I think he defended him selve on that but I thought it was something to do with the Goverment I could be wrong such a long time ago nice Cars though!

    Nothing. He was caught on tape, video and audio and was acquitted anyway, go figure.
