A US court has upheld the conviction of Mexican drug lord El Chapo’s in the death of a hitman. Attorneys used evidence of the killings and torture of rival Zetas cartel members throughout the hearing to prove their case. In addition, they showed videotapes of the gangsters’ shooting and burying bodies. El Chapo was convicted and imprisoned as a consequence of the evidence gathered.
The judge has ruled that El Chapo will be sentenced on June 25, with a mandatory life sentence. It’s been arranged for a direct sentence from the court. His case was heard at the “Supermax” prison in Florence, Colorado, which is home to the former Zetas leader Osiel Cardenas Guillen and Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The case was regarded as a remarkable achievement for federal governance by U.S. Attorney Richard P. Donaghue in the prosecution.
A cooperating witness testified in the case that El Chapo repeatedly raped teenage girls. A cooperating witness claimed that Guzman stabbed a 13-year-old girl with a stick and shot her in the head. The prosecution countered the accusations and argued that they were irrelevant. However, the jury ruled that Guzman was guilty.
The alleged murder of the US ambassador in Mexico was an unimaginable crime. Although Guzman is not a criminal, his trial was a big win for the United States. The US court upheld the conviction of El Chapo after a jury rejected several claims that the evidence was faulty. In January, prosecutors presented a massive cache of evidence indicating that Guzman was actively involved in the kingpin’s cartel. Among the evidence were text messages and phone recordings showing Guzman discussing the murder of a Colombian guerilla.
The US court ruled that the conviction of the Mexican drug lord was justified. The court found that Guzman had been guilty of the crimes. But the judge ruled that his conviction was based on evidence and that he did not deserve parole. Despite his conviction, the jury’s verdict is upheld. This is a huge win for the prosecution and for the US.
The two-year-long trial of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has been upheld by the court. The US court praised the trial judge, Brian Cogan, for conducting a fair and meticulous trial. The US court cited a series of pretrial rulings that showed Guzman had engaged in illegal activity while serving his sentence. The judges also found that Guzman had committed some of the crimes in the past.
