The verdict has been given in the US trial of infamous drug lord Joaquin Guzmán , no doubt the rest of life will be spent in prison , there must be little to no prospect of him reviving he famed escapology career.

List of charges he's been convicted of.
Engaging in a Continuing Criminal Enterprise
International Cocaine, Heroin, Methamphetamine and Marijuana Manufacture and Distribution Conspiracy
Cocaine Importation Conspiracy
Cocaine Distribution Conspiracy
International Distribution of Cocaine
International Distribution of Cocaine
International Distribution of Cocaine
International Distribution of Cocaine
Use of Firearms
Conspiracy to Launder Narcotics Proceeds.


Guzmán, 61, was found guilty on all charges. The top count, which carries a life sentence, was running in a continuing criminal enterprise, a wide-ranging charge that includes conspiracy to traffick drugs and conspiracy to commit murder. Count two was for manufacture and distribution of coc aine, methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana, while counts three through seven were for importation or distribution of coc aine. Count nine was for use of firearms, and count 10 was for laundering the vast profits the cartel made from drug trafficking.

I wish him a thoroughly unhappy retirement from his life of organized crime and misery dispensing.

Bye bye bad guy.

He still has 8 or 9 adult children running around, up to a few of them not necessarily in the cartel business (the daughters), his wife, and a lifetime of accomplishments (in his mind). He's the most famous kingpin since Pablo Escobar except he's still alive. He might or probably could even get conjugal visits someday. Then again, knowing his security level will be high from previous escapes in Mexico that I doubt it but you never know.

I'd say in a way that it's a win for him. Sure, he wont be free, but he'll be protected and someday content with a small level of comfort or normality in his daily life. Look at it like a retirement. He'll get 3 meals a day, never has to do a damn thing, will undoubtably be able to buy every bell and whistle allowed at his prison for his cell in due time. I don't know how the prison system works for special food, but at the local city jail, there's a section on the canteen bubble card for hot premium food brought to the cell.

You fill out a card with just that section bubbled and give it to the next guard who walks by, and in an hour you can have a Digiorno rising crust personal pizza brought to your cell. There's burgers on it too. If you had enough money in credits, you could have one everyday. I don't know if there's a limit to once per day, but I do know you could order 3 of them at once if you wanted.

In prisons I've heard that you can buy televisions, radios, microwaves, and things like that. That all depends on your behavior record and what type of cell you're in, I'm sure. But, if you're a good prisoner that never gets in trouble, you can get it.

You’re welcome...Mexico....again

We take your criminals directly and indirectly...

im sick of my taxes buttressing lawless foreign governments(Mexico) who can’t take care of themselves...and now we are trying and jailing their criminals because they are too corrupt...disgusting

We have been fighting lawless Mexicans since they first gave us land grants because they couldn’t contain the ever expanding comancheria...

We pushed them back and then turned on the now encroaching Mexicans...they have been duplicitous since Cortez first set foot on their soil in the name of Spain...

Your tax dollars are being wasted in many ways at least this way it's doing your neighbor and its people a favour.

He also has plenty of his own men in prison.

He'll be running wherever he ends up before long.

Eh, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Yemen surely cost more money than Mexico yea?

Hopefully we don't add Venezuela to the list.

He should be in prison.

That said....he was enabled and supported by people within our government (CIA/DEA). Why do we allow our government to create monsters?

So that we can go after them again, and either make them forfeit some of the assets they accrued while under said direction.... Or, full invasion.

We could do a whole thread on dictators we propped up just to overthrow.

He'll be in a super-max, and those are anything but "cushy".

My guess is he'll be in Colorado's super-max in Florance.

No. He'll be in a Super-max. I'm guessing ADX-Florence.

They don't do General Population, or prison gangs...etc. A little cell. An exercise room, 24 hr observation.

They better make sure his cell is monitored 24/7 considering how many times he's escaped from other cells. Money talks and he has a lot of it.
