"El Chapo" attorney claims "plenty of errors" and unfair trial

"El Chapo" attorney claims "plenty of errors" and unfair trial

Ted Cruz thinks convicted Mexican drug lord Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán should finance President Donald Trump's long-promised border wall.

"If I were a betting man", Horn added, "I'd bet on ADX". One former prisoner, in an interview with The Boston Globe, described the lockup as a "high-tech version of hell, created to shut down all sensory perception".

But Guzman, set to be sentenced in June for smuggling enormous amounts of narcotics into the U.S and having a hand in dozens of murders, would stand out even from Supermax's infamous roster because of his nearly mythical reputation for breaking out.

Guzman, one of the major figures in Mexican drug wars that have roiled the country since 2006, become nearly legendary for escaping from Mexican high-security jails twice and avoiding massive manhunts. But it has been widely anticipated that, if convicted, he would be sent to ADX Florence, ever since his extradition to the United States in January 2017.

"There's more people that want everything that El Chapo controlled".

Still, Baez's alleged 2018 racket was a far cry from "Chapo style", as the Sinaloa cartel boss' own pepper plan involved secreting an estimated $500 million worth of cocaine into the U.S.in the early 1990s, packed inside cans of La Comadre pickled jalapenos. "They headed down unguarded hallways and through wide-open electronic doors to the inner parking lot, where only one guard was on duty".

Ending up at ADX would make it almost impossible for him to repeat his past escapades.

Within months of his arrest, Mexican authorities extradited Guzman to NY to face charges.

"They get limited privileges, limited contacts".

Most inmates are given a television, but their only real view of the outside world is a 4in window whose design prevents them from even determining where they are housed in the facility.

"It's the most secure, most controlled, most confined unit in the prison", former BOP warden Joe Gunja told New York Daily News. He hopes El Chapo's conviction will cause those drug lords to feel a little uneasy.

Guzman was found guilty of smuggling tonnes of drugs into the United States over a decades-long career built on deadly intimidation and bloody turf wars as he moved illicit shipments across continents at lightning speed.
