El Chapo trial begins this week in NYC
« on: November 12, 2018, 01:32:55 PM »
El Chapo will be shutting down the Brooklyn Bridge every week during trial that begins this week

The trial of Joaquin Guzman Loera — better known as “El Chapo,” a drug lord infamous for escaping a Mexican prison via tunnel in 2015 — kicks off Tuesday in Brooklyn and is expected to last four months.

Guzman, 61, faces a 17-count indictment on charges including drug trafficking and murder conspiracy that could land him behind bars for life if he’s convicted of each one, reported NBC News. Guzman won’t face the death penalty as part of an extradition agreement the U.S. made with Mexico.

Guzman has been held in solitary confinement in downtown Manhattan’s super-secure Metropolitan Correctional Center since he was extradited in January 2017, reported The Wall Street Journal.

But while the trial is going on in Brooklyn on weekdays, he’ll be held at an unknown location within the borough.

The jury deciding Guzman’s fate will also have huge levels of protection including federal marshals who will escort them to and from the courthouse each day. The jurors are anonymous and most said they already knew about “El Chapo” from the news and television specials, reported TheWSJ.

Opening statements are expected Nov. 13.

Cogan said there’d be adjustments to avoid the logistical nightmare caused by transporting Guzman each day to and from court — sparking speculation that Guzman will be housed in a special cell in the basement of the Brooklyn courthouse. It’s unclear if that arrangement has been made.

A Special Cell eh....Like this one??

El Chapo's wife caught with unauthorized smartphone in court last week and now prosecutors say his attorneys complied in with giving El Chapo communications, or ability to communicate, with his wife.
