Posted by William Young | Jul 17, 2019 | 0 Comments

A federal judge has sentenced Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán to a term of life in prison without the possibility of parole plus 30 years for his role in drug trafficking, murder, and money laundering as the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel. The sentence also includes a multibillion-dollar financial penalty (roughly $12,600,000). This results from a roughly three-month trial that started in late 2018, where El Chapo was convicted on all 10 counts contained within a federal indictment.
