Drug lord Joaquin Guzman has an unparalleled record of jailbreaks, having escaped two high-security Mexican prisons before his ultimate capture and extradition to the US.

"If we can get money out of El Chapo, I'm all for it", Kennedy said.

A federal jury in Brooklyn found Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman guilty Tuesday on murder conspiracy, drug-trafficking and money-laundering charges.

The U.S. Government is reportedly seeking more than $14 billion in drug proceeds and illicit profits from Guzman, the former leader of the infamous Sinaloa drug cartel, as part of his criminal proceedings.

The report surfaced soon after Brown tweeted a video with a caption that thanked Steeler Nation and stated it's "time to move on". Since then , he has recorded more than 1,000 yards receiving in seven of his nine seasons in the league.

But Guzman, set to be sentenced in June for smuggling enormous amounts of narcotics into the U.S and having a hand in dozens of murders, would stand out even from Supermax's infamous roster because of his nearly mythical reputation for breaking out. The verdict means Guzman is now facing life in prison. "It Is a sentence from which there is no escape and no return".

Guzman, 59, was found guilty of 10 charges, including running a criminal enterprise, by jurors following a three-month trial in NY on Tuesday.

Shipping cocaine from Colombia through Mexico to the U.S., he became a billionaire and public enemy number one for law enforcement agencies in the US.

U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue called the conviction "a victory for the American people who suffered so much" while the defendant poured poison over the borders. Officials were so concerned about security, in fact, that Guzman was forbidden from hugging his wife at his trial.

Referring to Offset and his rap group, Cardi added: 'I want to thank all the artists who took their time with my verses.

Guzman's lawyers sought to prove their client did not, in fact, run the Sinaloa Cartel, but took orders from someone else.

She said Guzman led her to a trap door beneath a bathtub that opened up to a tunnel that allowed them to escape. "He left us behind".

"The truth is this hurts", said a gray-haired man wearing a baseball cap, who described himself as a native of Badiraguato, Guzaman's hometown, but declined to provide his name.

Guzman, one of the major figures in Mexican drug wars that have roiled the country since 2006, become nearly legendary for escaping from Mexican high-security jails twice and avoiding massive manhunts.
