El Chapo Sentenced To Life

It’s officially a wrap for El Chapo. After several years of evading arrest and breakouts from prison, the Sinaloa drug cartel leader has been sentenced to life in prison plus 30 years.

The news comes from CNN who reports that Chapo, real name Joaquín Guzmán Loera, told the court, “there was no justice here.”

The Court also ordered the drug lord to pay $12.6 Billion in forfeiture. The amount he’ll pay in restitution has yet to be established.

As previously reported Chapo was found guilty February 12, on 10 federal criminal counts;
