Jurors have reached a verdict in the case of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán, the Mexican druglord accused of carrying out a sprawling criminal enterprise as chief of the Sinaloa cartel.

The jury deliberated more than 30 hours over six days. He was found guilty.

This is a developing story.

Fast Facts You Need to Know

1. Guzmán, 61, Faces Life Behind Bars for His Serious Crimes, Including International Distribution of Cocaine.

The Mexican kingpin faces 10 counts, including engaging in a continuing criminal enterprise, conspiracy to launder narcotics proceeds, international distribution of cocaine, heroin, marijuana and other drugs, and use of firearms. He has pleaded not guilty and could be sentenced to life in prison if convicted.

2. Extensive Trial Exposed the Dark Life of the Mexican Drug Lord

Over the course of two and a half months, a jury of eight women and four men in Brooklyn federal court heard testimony about unspeakable torture and ghastly murders, epic corruption at nearly every level of Mexico’s government, narco-mistresses and naked subterranean escapes, gold-plated AK-47s and monogrammed, diamond-encrusted pistols.

3. Jurors Had to Listen to Countless Hours of Testimony from 56 Witnesses, Including Cartel Associates

The prosecution’s case featured 200 hours of testimony from 56 witnesses. Fourteen of those witnesses — mostly admitted drug traffickers and cartel associates — were cooperating with prosecutors in hopes of reducing their own prison sentences.

4. Billionaire to Spend Remainder of His Life Behind Bars

Guzmán, once listed on Forbes’ Billionaires List, has long been a slippery and near-mythical figure. He escaped from a Mexican prison in 2001 in a laundry cart and again in 2015 through a tunnel. After he was recaptured in 2016, he was extradited to the US to face American federal charges. He will now serve the remainder of his life behind bars.
