Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman sentenced to life in prison, likely will be housed at ‘Alcatraz of the Rockies’
NEW YORK -- The Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman has been sentenced to life behind bars in a U.S. prison, a humbling end for a drug lord once notorious for his ability to kill, bribe or tunnel his way out of trouble. A federal judge in Brooklyn handed down the sentence Wednesday, five months after Guzman's conviction in an epic drug-trafficking case.
