Guzman, 62, was found guilty on ten charges including drug trafficking and money-laundering at the Federal Court in New York last February He had escaped from a Mexican prison in 2015 but was caught shortly afterwards. He was extradited to the US in 2017.

Mexicans who live in the city where El Chapo is from, welcomed the news, saying that they are happy that the man who caused so much damage to their community has finally got what he deserved.
