Jury Finds 'El Chapo' Guilty In New York Trial
Watch VideoA jury in New York has found Joaquín Guzmán Loera, better known as "El Chapo," guilty on all charges. Guzmán faced 10 counts, including distributing drugs like cocaine and heroin internationally, engaging in a continuing criminal enterprise, money laundering and conspiracy to commit murder. Guzmán was extradited to the U.S. in 2016 and pleaded not guilty to all charges at the time. Before his extradition, he escaped twice from maximum-security prisons in Mexico — once from a tunnel dug in his cell's shower. The closely watched trial had what NBC News called “unprecedented security.” The case featured 56 prosecution witnesses and over 200 hours of testimony. Additional reporting from Newsy affiliate CNN.
