The notorious drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman has been sentenced to life in prison, plus 30 years after being convicted of several federal (drug-related) crimes back in February. Guzman will also be required to forfeit $12.6 billion. In what could be his last time addressing the public before he is shipped to Colorado's Supermax prison, El Chapo told the courtroom "there was no justice here."
Guzman's attorney, Mariel Colon says that the drug lord is optimistic that he can appeal his sentencing. But Colon was also aware of the loftiness of an appeal saying that if an appeal isn't successful, "then this will be the last time the public will see El Chapo," and "could be potentially also the last time El Chapo could see his wife."
