El Chapo trial: Mexican drug lord GUILTY and will NEVER be released

El Chapo found guilty

“El Chapo” Found Guilty On 10 Counts In New York Trial

Jeffrey Lichtman, a lawyer for Guzman, told reporters after the verdict that the defence faced an uphill fight, given the amount of evidence the government presented, and the widespread perception that Guzman was already guilty.

A grand jury in New York City found Mexican drug cartel kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman guilty on all counts; setting the stage for a high-stakes sentencing hearing that could send the global criminal to prison for the rest of his life.

Jurors in federal court in Brooklyn found Guzman, 61, guilty on all 10 counts. He faces a possible sentence of life in prison.

As the judge read the verdict, Guzman stared at the jury without expression.

Guzman leaned back in his chair Tuesday to catch the eye of his wife, who gave him a subtle thumbs-up, when the jury was discharged from a federal courthouse in Brooklyn.

They need our labor, they need our minds, they need our talents to really make it happen", lead union negotiator Rob Gould said. The strike is the latest action in a wave of teacher activism since last spring, when teachers went on strike in West Virginia.

Jurors convicted Guzman on all 10 counts in an worldwide drug distribution trial that lasted more than three months.

One of the trial's most memorable pieces of evidence came from El Chapo's mistress Lucero Guadalupe Sanchez Lopez, who testified she was in bed in a safe house with an on-the-run Guzman in 2014 when Mexican marines started breaking down his door.

The identities of jurors were kept for their safety and to try and stop the Mexican drug lord, real name Joaquin Guzman, from getting his cronies to sway the verdict with bribes or threats. His lawyers say Guzman is not a criminal mastermind but just a fall guy for the leader of the Sinaloa cartel, Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada.

Guzman spoke in the courtroom only once during the trial, saying he would not testify in his own defense, NBC News reported.

Estimates of how much money Guzman made from drugs vary.

Guzman listened to a drumbeat of guilty verdicts on drug and conspiracy charges that could put the 61-year-old escape artist behind bars for decades in a maximum-security US prison selected to thwart another one of the breakouts that made him a folk hero in his native country. He was free at that point after a dramatic escape in which he tunneled out of a Mexican prison. In 2009, Forbes Magazine put him on its list of the world's richest people, with an estimated $1 billion. A spokesman for the ex-president has denied the claim.

This came after his second, short-lived escape from prison.

But the Mexican government says he blew his cover through a series of slip ups, including an attempt to make a movie about his life. He was finally recaptured in January 2016 following a shootout in Sinaloa.
