El Chapo Found Guilty
Mexican drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán has been found guilty on all 10 counts at his drug trafficking trial at a federal court in New York.
Guzmán, 61, has yet to be sentenced but the verdict could mean life in jail.
The Mexican was accused of being behind the all-powerful Sinaloa drug cartel, which prosecutors say was the biggest supplier of drugs to the US.
He was arrested in January 2016 after escaping from a Mexican prison through a tunnel five months earlier.
Tuesday’s unanimous verdict by a jury in Brooklyn followed an 11-week trial.
He was accused of employing hitmen to carry out “hundreds” of murders, assaults, kidnappings and acts of torture on rivals.
Key associates, including one former lieutenant, testified against Guzmán.
