Mexican drug lord El Chapo gets life sentence
Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman gets life sentence plus 30 years in jail by the judge in a federal courtroom in Brooklyn after being convicted of 10 counts he was facing back in February including leading international drug network.
According to TMZ, El Chapo was found guilty 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.
The verdict came after a nearly 3-month trial in which the jury heard around 200 hours of insane testimony about drug trafficking, luxury weapons, money laundering … and an alleged $100 million bribe to a former Mexican president.
He’s also ordered to forfeit $12.6 BILLION to the government as a result of the dirty money he made from his criminal drug enterprise.
