Guest Speaker

Stephen L. Arrington

Steve will present his experience as the last surviving defendant of the JZD Trial in the early 80s. Steve has FBI investigative reports, transcripts of the FBI's secret tapes and plenty of stories of what the jury never heard and what the Federal agents tried to hide. This is a presentation not to be missed!

The case involved Pablo Escobar the leader of the Medellin Drug Cartel, his #1 hit man, Rafael Salazar, "AKA Rafa", and Max Mermelstien who smuggled 56 tons of cocaine into the United States-and sent over $300,000,000 back down to Medellin. The defendants were John Z. DeLorean, creator of the DeLorean Motor Car, Morgan Hetrick a Texas Maverick who claimed to be the #1 cocaine smuggler on the West Coast, and Stephen L. Arrington, Vietnam vet, USN bomb disposal frogman, pilot and author of this book.
