Drug King Pin “El Chapo” Convicted on All 10 Counts
It's really no surprise that there was a verdict of guilty on all 10 counts. I don't think there is anyone that hasn't heard the horror stories of El Chapo and the Sinaloa drug cartel.
With hundreds, maybe thousands, of people murdered and tortured under El Chapo's reign, it has to be mentioned that El Chapo is at least partially responsible for the deadly fentanyl heroin coming into the US.
El Chapo became a billionaire by running his drug cartel and smuggling heroin, fentanyl, meth, cocaine and marijuana into the United States. He was a ruthless businessman that would order someone tortured and killed on mere suspicion.
June 25th will be the day that El Chapo is sentenced in New York. Prosecutors are asking for life without parole. El Chapo's attorneys are planning to appeal his convictions.
I can only imagine that when they do sentence him, that it will be in the most secure prison we have. El Chapo has escaped twice in the past with the most recent in 2015. He has resources and people that like to dig tunnels. We'll see.
