Guilty… El Chapo Facing Life in Prison!!!
First Name Tom, Last Name Foolery… And I’m Everybody’s Uncle!
Even this convicted drug lord… El Chapo.
Drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera, who once headed a criminal enterprise that spanned continents & triggered waves of bloodshed throughout his native Mexico, was found guilty Tuesday of all 10 federal criminal counts against him.
The vast Brooklyn, New York, courtroom fell silent as the verdict was read. Jurors did not look at the defendant, who pocketed nearly $14 billion as the decadeslong head of the murderous Sinaloa cartel.
There was no visible reaction from Guzman, whose conviction on the top charge of engaging in a continuing criminal enterprise carries a mandatory term of life in prison. He will be sentenced on June 25.
“It is a sentence of which there is no escape & no return,” US Attorney for the Eastern District Richard Donoghue said.
US District Judge Brian Cogan confirmed the verdicts with each of the eight women & four men on the jury, telling them later their conduct on the panel “made me very proud to be an American.”
One of Guzman’s lawyers described him as “extremely upbeat” after the verdict.
“He’s a fighter,” defense attorney Michael Lambert said.
“He’s not done yet by far.”
