El Chapo Trial: Chapo is on the witness list says defense

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat

government photo evidence--Chapo with his Gold AK-47

Federal prosecutors informed Judge Cogan, the judge presiding over the El Chapo trial, that they have yet to receive the list of defense witness list.

That question in of itself is an indicator that the government is about ready to finish their presentation of witness testimony. 

The big surprise is when defense attorney Jefferey Lichtman replied to the issue of the defense witness list; “You have Mr. Guzman’s name?” stating that Chapo’s name is on the witness list.

He added that it was not a fait accompli but supposedly he is on the list.

Although no one should put money on that possibility---it may not be a bad idea. 

What does he have to lose?  It could be his successful Hail Mary Pass, not to walk free, that will not and should not happen, but to persuade the jury to knock off a substantial number of the counts remaining against him.  In the end it is all about the numbers in sentencing. 

If he does testify, it would not impact his ability to appeal, although he could slip and say something that would affect his appeal.  Too risky most legal minds would say. 

In this trial however, maybe it is good reasoning for him to speak on his own behalf.  He has demonstrated poise and has been even temperament throughout the trial.


As for appeals, many legal minds say he has good grounds based on a number of issues.  But as far as him actually taking the stand, looks like Lichtman is blowing smoke.

    6. 10:39 You dont get it if he was dead there would be no snitching on anybody even EPN. But they're talking about mayo and chapos sons for sure. Btw go back to fifth grade and learn how to use "their" properly.

    7. Pathetic seeing people on here, thinking Chapo is their friend and defending him as though they were on his payroll. This guy that’s on trial does not care about any of you defending him. He would be 100% ok allowing his dirty thugs kill you....he’s not losing any sleep over you.

    9. 7:25 is that internet tough guy that would leave a puddle of piss if el chapo was standing in front of him lol and calling him a bitch?? Lol that's laughable... He ran the game longer than some of us have had hair. The only gold ak that guy ever held was the one he unlocked in Gta

    6. Most likely Chinese, Norinco to be specific. That's what we like in Culiacan. Im sure it's not one of those wasr10's that the ATF sent over there for them.

    8. Who cares? Is an obsolete rifle. I don't get why mexican carteles don't update to the AK 74 and other modern variants chambered in 5.45mm or the new 6.5mm for the ak-12.
      7.62mm is keanm to be shot in a full power cartridge, not assault intermidiate rifles.

    9. 1030. Lmao. That’s what we like in Culiacan. According to chapós phone calls. You like what you can get.

  5. LA VIDA MAFIOSA
    Sentado en una hielera
    y escuchando un corrido
    le jale a un cuerno de chivo
    rodeado por mis amigos
    por los versos recordaba
    todo lo que en vida he sido.

    Se me calento el terreno
    me buscaban por mafioso
    me achacaban varias muertes
    por la prensa publicaron
    y como si fuera poco
    hasta rifles me achacaron.

    Me pierdo por temporadas
    cuando no hay que dar la cara
    me oscurece y me a manece
    si se trata de una chamba
    yo no tengo quien me empuje
    solito me aviento al agua.

    Me gusta escuchar consejos
    pero no me manden nada
    cuando algo me sale mal
    a mi nadie me regaña
    me paseo por donde quiera
    con damas y camaradas

  6. At this point what does it matter . In the guilty innocent phase it is usually a bad move for a defendant to testify . All he can do now is deny or justify . I suspect justify . Either way he is done for this lifetime . I think its time to do a story on El Mayo . Bet Sean Penn could put it together . Yea that's right . He has Benicio Del Toro recruited to play El Mayo

  20. Since he is being put on the stand, they should put scarface on repeat in his cell. That way maybe he can make a bad guy speech como el Tony montana

  23. Does anyone know who that is talking to him...a cartel figure or just a elder from the sierra

    ReplyDelete
  24. I hope Chapo do get on the stand to tell his side of the story. It will help him more than it hurting him. I feel like if he didn't get on the stand the jury will question why he didn't. He is not the monster that the prosecution has painted him out to be. Yes he brought drugs into America but us americans have a drug problem. I just think it would be in his best interest

    ReplyDelete
  25. Who remembers when everyone use to say chapo was protected by 300 men,not!!! 50 is alot,anf i doubt 20

    ReplyDelete
  26. If he does take the stand, I don't think his "I'm just a farmer" arguement will do him much good anymore. Lol perhaps he should use something out of the SJW playbook. He's being oppressed/ discriminated against because of race, gender,inequality, vertically challenged..etc. surely that would gain sympathy with younger liberal/progressive jurors. New York loves their activism bs.
