El Chapo jury reaches guilty verdicts on 6th day of deliberations

“El Chapo” Found Guilty On 10 Counts In New York Trial

Jurors agreed with prosecutors that he amassed huge wealth and power leading 'the world's largest and most prolific drug trafficking organization.' They heard blood-curdling evidence about how El Chapo once beat and shot a worker who defected to a rival cartelk, before burying him alive.

Murderous Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman appeared scared and teary after arriving in NY under ultra-heavy federal guard in January 2017 to face charges, according to video released by the feds Tuesday.

Guzman's wife, Emma Coronel Aispuro, leaves Brooklyn federal court on January 17 after attending the trial. He faces a possible sentence of life in prison.

Guzman, whose nickname means "Shorty", was extradited to the United States for trial in 2017 after he was arrested in Mexico the year before.

As the judge read the verdict, Guzman stared at the jury without expression. Once the jury left the room, he and his wife put their hands to their hearts and gave each other the thumbs up sign.

Amazon invests in self-driving auto start-up Aurora Innovation
Early previous year , it announced its first strategic partnership with Volkswagen Group to bring self-driving cars to market. The funding round was led by venture capital firm Sequoia, whose partner Carl Eschenbach will join Aurora's board .

In the trial, which has lasted several months, prosecutors used more than 50 witnesses to detail Guzman's involvement in making billions of dollars distributing drugs in the U.S.

The notorious Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman has been convicted of drug-trafficking charges at a trial in NY. His lawyers say Guzman is not a criminal mastermind but just a fall guy for the leader of the Sinaloa cartel, Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada. However, he was caught in 2016 before he was extradited to the United States in 2017.

Estimates of how much money Guzman made from drugs vary.

The 61-year-old was a key player in the Mexican drug cartel landscape. In 2009, Forbes Magazine put him on its list of the world s richest people, with an estimated $US1 billion. Colombian trafficker Alex Cifuentes caused a stir by testifying that former Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto took a $100 million bribe from Guzman. The same day, he grinned broadly at audience member Alejandro Edda, the Mexican actor who plays Guzman in the Netflix drama "Narcos".

This came after his second, short-lived escape from prison.

The drug boss escaped from prison twice - once in 2001 by hiding in a laundry bin, and again in 2014 when he escaped through tunnels on a specially adapted small motorcycle. Cogan says it made him "very proud to be an American".
