Drag racing champion guilty of drug offences
Former Australian drag racing champion Brett Stevens has been convicted of producing and trafficking ecstasy.
The 50-year-old, who won three national drag racing titles, was found guilty at Brisbane’s Supreme Court at the end of a six week trial today.
The court heard that Stevens was instrumental in the running of a $1.2 Million drug operation, which produced 100,000 pills a week between 2007-2009.
Stevens pleaded not guilty to producing, trafficking and supplying the drug at the beginning of the trial.
The jury found Stevens guilty of producing and trafficking, but not guilty of supplying.
The former drag racer is due to be sentenced on November 20.
