Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman Loera Found Guilty on All Counts

Published

Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman is guilty on all 10 counts he was facing in a Brooklyn federal court … and he’s now facing life in prison.

A jury of 7 women and 5 men returned the verdict Tuesday to wrap up a nearly 3-month long criminal trial that included up to 200 hours of testimony about drug trafficking, gold-plated AK-47s, diamond-encrusted pistols … and an alleged $100 million payment to a former Mexican president.

After 6 days of deliberations, the jury returned guilty verdicts against Chapo for engaging in a continuing criminal enterprise, conspiracy to launder narcotics proceeds, international distribution of cocaine, heroin, marijuana and other drugs and use of firearms. 



It’s been a wild ride for the Sinaloa Cartel’s leader over these past few years. He was captured by the Mexican government in 2014, escaped more than a year later through a mile-long underground tunnel … and got caught again in early 2016. 

He was extradited to the U.S. in 2017, and between then and this past November — when his criminal trial got underway — there’s been a lot of weird stuff that he’s been dealing with behind bars. To name a few … prison TV woes, prayer problems, love letter recommendations and a heartfelt promise NOT to kill his anonymous and sequestered jurors … among others.
