El Chapo trial: Fate of Mexican drug lord with jury

Feb 05, 2019 08:09 IST

After 56 witnesses and nearly 200 hours of testimony, the fate of notorious Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is finally drawing to a close. A federal court in Brooklyn will ask jurors to decide the verdict for Guzmán, who faces life in prison. Guzmán’s rise to power as the head of the Sinaloa cartel involves smuggling at least 200 tons of cocaine into the US and a series of turf war murders with other cartels. The 61 year old druglord is notorious for escaping prison twice in Mexico.
