El Chapo jury reaches guilty verdicts on 6th day of deliberations

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

Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, more commonly known by the nickname "El Chapo", once considered the most powerful and feared drug trafficker in the entire world, was found guilty on all counts related to leading Mexico's Sinaloa cartel on Tuesday.

NY jury reached a guilty verdict today in the El Chapo trial.

Guzman's wife, Emma Coronel Aispuro, leaves Brooklyn federal court on January 17 after attending the trial.

Biting his lip, his eyes red as he appeared to continually fight back tears, the small-fry cartel killer - who was convicted in Brooklyn court Tuesday and now faces life in prison - was a far cry from the picture painted of him by United States authorities as the ruthless head of the world's largest illicit-drug network.

They were are asked to make 53 decisions about whether prosecutors have proven various elements of the 10-count indictment against Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

According to the New York Post, which dedicated reporters to covering his trial, 14 former associates were called to testify against him.

Unlike other people in a similar position, Guzman would not plead guilty and went for a public trial after being extradited to the US. Guzman smiled and waved, and she touched her hand to her chest.

The verdict came on the sixth day of the jury's deliberations.

Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman stared at the jury straight-faced as the judge read the guilty verdict.

Guzman's lawyers did not deny the defendant's charges but argued that he was the victim of government witnesses who were worse than he was. President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador was elected previous year after promising a change, suggesting a negotiated peace and amnesty for non-violent drug dealers, traffickers and farmers.

The notorious former leader of the dreaded Sinaloa Cartel has been the subject of numerous TV shows and films, including Univision's series El Chapo, a recent Netflix documentary with the same title that was ridiculed by Sean Penn, Netflix's Narcos: Mexico and documentary The Day I Met El Chapo with Kate del Castillo.

The most detailed evidence against Guzman came from more than a dozen former associates who struck deals to cooperate with US prosecutors.

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 USA prison selected to thwart another one of the breakouts that made him a folk hero in his native country.

Guzman made a name for himself in the 1980s as "El Rapido", the speedy one, by building cross-border tunnels that allowed him to move cocaine from Mexico into the United States faster than anyone else.
