El Chapo is sentenced to life
  • [Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] El Chapo - aka Joaquin Guzman - was sentenced to life in prison plus 30 years

  • He was also ordered to forfeit $12.6 billion in restitution to the US government

  • Guzman, 62, was convicted in February of a slew of drug trafficking charges

  • He denied them all, claiming he was being framed by the Mexican cartel

  • On Wednesday, he spoke for the first time throughout the trial to thank his wife and his legal team for their support

  • His wife will not be allowed to visit him behind bars and Wednesday was likely the last time they will ever see each other

  • María Consuelo Loera Pérez, his mother, was denied a humanitarian visa by the US government so could not attend the hearing

  • He also complained about the 'torturous' conditions in the prison where he has been since January 2017

  • Guzman will now be sent to a supermax prison to live out his days

  • He famously escaped Mexican prison twice before being extradited to the US

#3 So that 12.6 billion that he has to forfeit- that would be a nice down payment on a wall.

#6 Hopefully he'll be in a prison with members of rival cartels, so we won't have to feed him another 20 years...

#7 Chris, they will never see that $12.6 billion. There would be very little in his name. Apparently, he was struggling over the past few years to pay his debts.

#8 Heard that too, Bernard. Perhaps that's why the Mex government actually caught and held him (again).

Check didn't clear.
