Jury selection begins for El Chapo's United States trial

Jury selection begins for El Chapo's United States trial

He said he was concerned that the prosecutors had indicated that they were prepared to present evidence that Guzman was involved in more than 30 murder conspiracies, even though the charges against him are for drug trafficking.

El Chapo was captured by the Mexican Army in December 2016. Prosecutors have also sought to hide the identity of cooperating witnesses out of concerns the cartel could seek retribution, while a judge is keeping the jury anonymous to protect them from intimidation.

"Guzman Loera is accused of using violence, including torture and murder, to maintain an iron-fisted grip on the drug trade across the U.S. -Mexico border, ' then-Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Robert Capers said". In the United States, opioid addiction has spiraled into an epidemic.

Authorities say he maintained his grip on the Sinaloa Cartel.

USA district court judge Brian Cogan will preside over the process behind closed doors.

The judge ruled that just five news reporters, a fraction of the swarm of media representatives following the trial, will be allowed in the courtroom during jury selection. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration says he was able to remain a force by communicating with his son and other cartel leaders through lawyers and others who visited him at the Altiplano prison outside Mexico City.

A number of major Jewish philanthropists contributed to the campaign, including George Soros, Seth Klarman and Stacy Schusterman. In 2016, 21 percent of African-Americans were disenfranchised, according to The Sentencing Project .

After Felix Gallardo was arrested in 1989, Guzman's Sinaloa cartel began its meteoric rise.

The Sinaloa cartel that Guzman founded in 1989 is still hugely powerful and his co-defendant Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada remains at large. Some are expected to testify under aliases. "The case is going to be based on these informants".

Guzman has been held in solitary confinement in NY since Mexico extradited him and he spends 23 hours a day in his cell.

There's now speculation that a special cell for Guzman has been set up in the bowels of the courthouse where he will spend the night after his days in court.

The only visitors he is allowed are his lawyers and twin, seven-year-old daughters, from whom he is separated by thick glass. Arrested for the first time in Guatemala in 1993, El Chapo spent more than seven years in a Mexican prison before his first escape in 2001. He was rearrested in 2014 only to escape 14 months later from a tunnel dug into the prison.

He conducted a secret interview with Sean Penn, who, according to the actor, was unaware he was being surveilled by the Mexican government, and reportedly ended up being the beacon for authorities to ultimately catch up with Guzman. This time, Mexico made a decision to wash their hands and put him on a plane.
