El Chapo: Attorney files for a continuance needing additional time for trial prep

by Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat
Outside prison on December 23
El Chapo shared a Christmas visit with his twin six year old twin daughters.  His daughters were born in California in 2011, thereby are American citizens, as is their mother Emma Coronel Aispuro.  The visit marks the fourth time Chapo has been allowed to see his twins.

Despite erroneous reports in the news, Emma did not visit Chapo on the 23rd with the twins, and has never been allowed a visit with her husband since extradited.

The Daily Mail, (U.K.Publication) ran the story of Emma visiting Chapo, and several media outlets republished their story.  DM tells Borderland Beat, the story originated from Washington Post and they took the information from that story.  

The judge presiding in Chapo’s case had placed severe restrictions on visits.  Virtually none, except the twins and even his attorney Eduardo Balarezo has no contact and no private visits with his client.

On Christmas Eve Chapo’s attorney filed a request for continuance.

The filing stresses the encumbrance of reviewing discovery and the mountain of discovery, several hundreds of thousands pages, and hundreds of thousands of recordings.  With the replacement of his defense with Balarezo, in effect the defense began preparation for trial on September 3rd of this year. 

The reviewing of discovery would be a monumental  task in the best of situations, however reviewing prosecution discovery, has been impeded by the restrictions of the legal team’s court ordered no contact visits.  Add in the fact that Chapo’s reading skills and computer skills are very low.

Description below:
The room is approximately five feet by ten feet, divided in half by a cement wall and a mesh/Plexiglas window.  On the attorney side of the room there is cement block measuring approximately two feet by two feet containing a metal drawer that slides into the inmate side of the visiting room. The drawer is meant to facilitate the passing of documents back and forth and was installed because the Court rejected contact visits with Mr. Guzmán.
The government/MCC also set up a computer screen on the attorney side for Mr. Guzmán to connect his government issued laptop to the monitor so as to allow both sides to view discovery on that one monitor. The monitor is approximately 15 inches across and of low resolution, making it almost impossible for Mr. Guzmán to view anything displayed on it from his side of the visiting room. As the defense pointed out to the government/MCC, this setup allowed Mr. Guzmán to control the reviewing of discovery, and since he is not facile with computers, the process of reviewing any one document took an unreasonable period of time.
The defense is asking for a continuance until August or September 2018.

  1. Well, well, well. What can we expect out of a poor illiterate farm boy from Sinaloa? He must feel heartbroken that having grown up in a modest to poor home in the mountains of said state he is accused of such horrible crimes against people and humanity in general. He really needs all the time in the world so that he can prove without a doubt that money wins over the law...I, mean his innocence.
    Look at all the shit his criminal empire still does in Juarez and you will see that only heavenly bliss exists there.
    Hahaha Fuck Chapo and Sinaloa!

    1. Haha, make hay off the fallen tree..
      Never mind others who get free passes because there are trillions of dollars property of their investors and associates in danger of getting abandoned and going bankrupt.
      It happened to the Taj-Mahal, after they got fined about 200 million dollars for money laundering, Taj still sits abandoned while the offended party got his revenge, ten "times worth the loses", and the american mafioso crime partners got imprisoned for life, incommunicado...
      --looks like a pattern now?

    2. Taj-Mahal 200 million money laundering vs Chapos 10,000 deaths in Chihuas and more across Mexico. Which is the worst of two evils???
      FUCK ALL them greedy mother fuckers! Wherever they come from!!!

      Delete
    3. 7:22 200 million dollars FINE, that is about 1/10th of the total money laundered only on the Taj...
      --The investors also lost their money, but the highly paid magnate executives drained all the money they could milk out of it unimpeded by the law, morals, ethics or justice...

    6. Guess y’all forgot what happened to the marine who allegedly pulled down El barbas pants after that whole shootout... shit even taking place and getting killed in the operation was grounds for all kinds of consequences... El Chapo has resorted to some joke ass legal tactics; you call that what it is cuz it sure as hell ain’t living, going blind, crazy and bald in solitary just cuz he didn’t have the pants to shoot it out

    7. Chapo would rather be alive and still be able to see his kids grow up even if its behind bars rather than being dead like arturo i dont see nothing wrong with that

    8. What does scarface have to do with real life situation you delusional fool

    9. Nothing happened to that marina, the one that got killed during the assault on El Barbas had a funeral when he came home for his funeral, and sicarios killed all his family, it resulted in "MASKS FOR THE MELITARY" now used by private foreign contractors operating in mexico, that makes it all suspect.

  5. The US Nazi Govt wont even let him look at a document. I know he is no angel but everyone is allowed due process in the United States so he should be allowed to speak face to face with his lawyer and share documents. If they didnt want to treat him fairly they shouldnt have extradited him to America.

  11. If you are dealing drugs in 2018 you do not want to be seen or attract ATTN to yourself. No telephone media hell you might want to just go phoneless. Chapo is getting due process. There is no in between unless your a pharmaceutical company. In this case an agriculture planted the wrong crop. I thought about it a long time. I finally said you know what I would rather be poor earning the 8 an hour I earn than to be stressed over bullshit ass money, enemies, cops, anxiety and being accountable to others for such small fortunes. The risk is a thrill I get it and the circle is private. Thank God there is a God to reach to. The value of life is small but my freedom... shitttt is much more overwhelmingly full with me owning my own mind and circulating my own thoughts and plying day in day out. The war is real and really fun when it becomes right with you. People say is that really real and when you talk to'em they can't seem to get around you as you how I'd like to say "fuck'em up". Literally. Stick it in'em till they get so mad they hate you for what is right. Anyway Mexico good luck with what you got and I wish you well. At this point it is to big to dismantle. The distraction from reality though is what really keeps it going. You know you can't have every kook on high alert so you keep'em fresh for the pin. Thanks BB, you guys do awesome work. Happy New Year and many blessings for all your fans, readers and family.

  12. Anybody with any understanding of legal tactics of a real working lawyer should understand . This lawyer is going to contest every single thing he can find to contest . He is working ! unlike many lawyers . The courts will rule against him on most of the motions he . He will object and object . Chapo is going to be convicted but the more rulings there are the more chances there will be error . The more points of error there is the better chance of appeal . That's the main thing chapo has going for him right now . A lawyer that fighting every step of the way . This is absurd . Poor little old illiterate chapo cant review his paper work properly . They are working it from every angle . If they can figure out who some of the witnesses are they will take care of them also . Right now they are grasping in all directions . If it weren't for the example that needs to be made of him they would have shot him down like the low life dog he is . Sympathy for Chapo ? when he is in there long enough to teach himself to read . He will be able to find sympathy in the dictionary some place between shit and Syphilis .

  16. @ chivis do you Know or can you give us your opinion on the wife and twins. Are they flying back and forth from Mexico and what part are they flying out of. Or did they buy a penthouse in Manhattan. Do they get around in a uber or do they get around in a limousine roll Royce ext. Do you think the wife can be with one of Chapo son she is young enough. It be great if you can respond thanks

    1. I don't know for sure. My sense is that they fly back and forth and perhaps California, where she has family in the bay area and simi valley. I don't think there is a need for settling in NYC. she can't visit chapo and the attorney is in DC.

      she did make a statement that if/when convicted she will move there with the twins.

Shes caught up in a mess and cant even enjoy her youth I bet she cant wait till chapo dies. One mistake and she could also be killed.

It is a very delicate situation getting it. if any money movement is detected by the authorities ......

  28. While there's buyers for drugs they'll always be narcos or drug dealers. If the death toll had reduced since he was imprisoned I'd see his arrest as worthwhile but its gone up. Maybe, just maybe the threat of a capo like him kept things more under control? I know he's a murderer and criminal but I just feel that the money his raid, extradition, imprisonment and trial cost could have been better spent actually helping people.
