Mexican drug lord Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán gets life in prison

A US judge has sentenced Mexican drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán to life in prison plus 30 years, BBC News has reported.

Guzmán, 62, was found guilty of 10 charges, including drug trafficking and money laundering, by a federal court in New York in February.

He escaped a Mexican jail through a tunnel in 2015, but was later arrested. He was extradited to the US in 2017.

He is a former head of the Sinaloa cartel, which officials say was the biggest supplier of drugs to the US.

During the trial, witnesses said he had tortured his cartel’s enemies.

    Hello and good afternoon my people. Well it’s over for El Chapo but the drug problem in America is bigger than him. America don’t have any plan or program to curtail ,Stop or prevent their citizens from using drugs and billions of dollars are in the black market which have a major impact of the economy. Tomorrow they will be announcing they are investigating a drug dealer who is bigger than El Chapo. Americans love drugs so someone have to provide it.

    This is an example of a man who was deceived by the devil. Now, after all the persons he would have killed and tortured he will be locked up and tortured by his thoughts. I hope he is able to see his kids. The only good he would have left in this world. God help him.
