Mexico’s most notorious drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday morning; closing the final chapter on his long criminal legacy.
In February, the former Sinaloa Cartel leader was convicted on several counts of conspiracy for his global drug trafficking empire.
Former associates gave damning testimony during the trial. One witness alleged that Guzman had paid a $100 million bribe to former Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto. Nieto has denied this allegation.
Some experts believe Guzman will be transferred to ‘Alcatraz of the Rockies’ a remote super max prison in Florence, Colorado where he will spend the rest of his life behind bars in solitary confinement.
