Mexican Drug Lord 'El Chapo' Found Guilty in U.S. Court

Mexican Drug Lord 'El Chapo' Found Guilty in U.S. Court

A federal jury convicted one of Mexico’s most famous drug lord on various charges related to running the Sinaloa Cartel.

El Chapo’s trial revealed the magnitude of corruption within the Mexican government where presidents, generals, and other law enforcement officials were outed for allegedly protecting the cartel in exchange for fees.

Court documents noted that El Chapo helped fund the 2006 failed presidential campaign of current Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox was also tarnished by the allegation that his chief bodyguard was an employee of the Sinaloa Cartel.

That claim was made by top cartel lieutenant Vicente Zambada Niebla, who is the son of El Chapo’s partner, Vicente “El Mayo” Zambada.
