The jury of the federal court in Brooklyn has found Guzman guilty on all 10 counts and now the drug lord faces a life sentence. According to the prosecution, the criminal had been moving tons of various drugs, including cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine, into the US for more than twenty years.
For the first time, Guzman was taken to a prison in Mexico in 2004; however, he escaped in 2001 after hiding in a laundry cart. He was recaptured again in 2014 but escaped once again the following year.
He was finally imprisoned in 2016 and then extradited to the US.
