El Chapo sentenced to life in prison: Lawyers react to ‘show trial’ of Mexican drug lord

Global News – 2019.07.17

Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s defence lawyer Jeffrey Lichtman and legal team spoke to media after the Mexican drug lord was sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday in New York, saying that this was all a « show trial » and that it didn’t make a difference how the jury voted.  Lichtman brought up allegations of crimes within the justice system that denied El Chapo a fair trial, and his decision to take on this case.
