A New York jury reached a guilty verdict today in the El Chapo trial. The notorious cartel boss, born Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, has been on trial in New York, which featured testimony from multiple witnesses.


The kingpin will be sentenced on a 10-count indictment (guilty on all 10 counts), for various charges, including running a continuing criminal enterprise, firearms possession, murder conspiracy, and the importation and distribution of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana. He will spend the rest of life in prison now that he has been convicted.
