Notorious drug lord Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman found guilty on all counts
Jurors convicted him on all 10 counts that are likely to put him behind bars for the rest of his life
NEW YORK — The notorious Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman has been found guilty on all counts in an international drug distribution trial in New York.
Jurors convicted him on all 10 counts that are likely to put him behind bars for the rest of his life. He is set to be sentenced on June 25.
The 61-year-old Guzman broke out of Mexican prisons twice before he was finally recaptured and extradited to the U.S. in 2017.
Federal prosecutors put on more than 50 witnesses over three months detailing how Guzman's Sinaloa cartel amassed billions of dollars importing tons of cocaine, heroin, meth and marijuana into the U.S.
