El Chapo has been found guilty on all 10 counts, including international distribution on cocaine and engaging in a criminal enterprise. The jury deliberated for more than 30 hours over six days. His trail also revealed disturbing new allegations including the possible rape of 13-year-old girls.
Prosecutors say Mexican kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán would pay $5,000 for girls to be brought into the Sierra Madre mountains while he was hiding from Mexican police. Court documents say a woman known as Comadre Maria would send El Chapo and his entourage pictures of young girls from which they could select their victims.
Guzmán is one of the most notorious drug lords from Mexico. He was accused of smuggling at least 200 tons of cocaine into the U.S. At one point, he allegedly bribed former Mexico president Enrique Peña Nieto with $100 million to call off a nationwide manhunt. He also escaped from two Mexican prisons, once through an underground tunnel from a top-security facility.
