El Chapo Found Guilty On 10 Counts


Joaquin Guzman the Mexican drug lord known as “El Chapo,” has been found guilty of all 10 charges in his New York trial. His trial lasted 42-days and was convicted on leading a criminal enterprise, drug trafficking for heroin, cocaine, and other drugs, the use of firearms, and money laundering.

Convicted by a jury of eight woman and four men, he could face life in a U.S. maximum-security federal prison and forfeit $14 million dollars.

“This trial has pulled back the curtain on international drug dealing in a way that no other trial has,” Richard Donoghue, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, told reporters outside the courtroom. “Guzmán’s conviction is a victory for the American people, who have suffered so long and so much while Guzmán made billions pouring poison over our southern border. This conviction is a victory for the Mexican people, who have lost more than 100,000 lives in drug-related violence. This conviction is a victory for every family who has lost a loved one to the black hole of addiction.”

Guzman is suspected of trafficking more than 440,000 pounds of drugs into the U.S. via tunnels, submarines, planes, trucks, and boars. He has been caught and jailed multiple times in the past, only to escape, helping created his near-mythical status in the criminal underworld.

But as we all know living a drug lords life is not easy and eventually you will end up dead or spending the rest of your life in prison.
