El Chapo Trial: Chapo's Date with destiny and verdict watch

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat

"I have no dog in this fight---" says Judge Cogan beginning his jury instructions---Jury excused to deliberate at 1:05 EST--- Attorney General Whitaker visits courtroom---wishes gov attorneys good luck

Chapo being transferred this morning

The indictment was 17 counts and has been dropped to 10 counts.  Each count however contains multiple violations.

During jury deliberations jurors will determine each individually to conclude guilty or not guilty.

I have been asked to predict the length of deliberations.  I honestly have no sense of how short or long it could be.  It could be as short as a few hours.  But, to conduct a true deliberation that requires each count/violation separately, it should take days.  Could it be today?  Yes.

Below I am posting again the verdict sheets for your perusal, or to cast your ballot and compare to the actual verdict sheets from the jury.

The day will began with Judge Cogan giving instructions to the jury.  A copy of instructions usually accompanies the jury into the deliberation room.  They can ask for clarification, but usually the judge will simply reiterate what is written, because the wording is carefully determined before the final draft, so Cogan must adhere to the wording.


Apparently there was a bit of chaos this morning when late comers attempted to cut into line. Journalists formed a union attempting to keep out the line cutters, to no avail the cutters made it in, when they did they were booed. Myself I think it fair to rotate who were spectators from the press.


You may here the verdict before seeing it on BB.  I am travelling today and tomorrow so may not be able to post it immediately.  I will do my best, besides the verdict will spread  everywhere like a California wild fire 


Keegan’s updates from inside the courtroom:

“Hearing that the defense will ask Judge Cogan to poll the jury before deliberations begin about whether anyone saw news coverage about Chapo allegedly drugging and raping young girls. Could potentially lead to jurors being dismissed. There are six alternates available.”

I don’t see how that is possible, because just asking the question gives them the information.  I think the usual questioning of seeing news stories on any medium would apply

Chapo came out today wearing a black suit, gray shirt, and black time. He was all smiles.  He gave each defense attorney a hug and slap on the back.

As expected, court began with a lengthy sidebar. It was an animated discussion between Judge Cogan, prosecutor Gina Parlovecchio, and Jeffrey Lichtman.
Afterward, Cogan said the transcript would be sealed "to protect the integrity of the deliberations of the jury."


More than likely it was about CW1s rape allegations- 

Yes it was: Rape allegations


The rape allegations against Chapo by Alex Cifuentes:  discussions  is now ordered  ‘sealed’ by Judge Cogan. Yet it was unsealed in the first place by Cogan’s own order last Friday. 

Judge Cogan then had private conversations with jurors about possible exposure to the rape allegations.  This only lasted 10 min. No one was dismissed.


A.G. Whitaker visits Chapo courtroom


From Eastern District New York spokesman: "Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, accompanied by United States Attorney Richard Donoghue, visited the courtroom after the jury departed for lunch and the Acting AG went to the government’s table where he wished the prosecution team good luck."

    2. 11:06 How long is 49 years in the federal prison ? At one time it was like 45 years before parole .However things change through the year and I haven't kept up with it . In the state of Texas years ago 50 was considered life . Done know know . I don't know what legislator it was under ,65th or older . I convict became eligible for parole at the same time , 50 or more .

    2. Yea Emma is scared now . She was defiantly implicated in those recordings . But they way its been going with all these Mexicans she has probably been working for the U.S. Government for years to save her own ass . Really that's about all that makes sense . She is free and don't seem to be worried . She made a special trip to California to give birth . How could she know she wouldn't get arrested ? Why didn't she get arrested ? Did they already have this wire tap evidence ?

  8. Holy shit in 2004 he pushed over 67,500 keys of blow into the U.S. but years prior and after don't touch that number...how does the Government explain or prove those numbers? did they have a closer eye on him in "04"? or business slowed or wtf happened? These kind of figures or charges make doubt that they have a real accurate idea of who moves what and how much. Also shouldn't the charge about conspiracy to commit murder specify what country he wanted these murders committed? I'm sure we all know that we DGAF who he kills in Mexico and can't prosecute for that so why even make that charge in the first place? Last ?... Chivis it possible for chapo to be sentenced to anything besides LIFE? is there a chance he can one day return to Mexico? Podria algun dia regresar a su tierra, A su Ranchito bonito llena de gente fiel y muy sincera que estuvimos con el, quando mas pobre LO-ERA... ojala no sea alla donde se muera.


    La gente de Badiraguato le deseamos Suerte y Animo.

  10. Stupid question, but what happens to a capo's assets when they are killed or arrested / extradited? Obviously the government takes what can be found - but do the children / spouses inherit or have access to the accounts?

    1. They will never find the billions of dollars he has in assets as they are well laundered with secrete bank accounts and people who they hire to run these business and real estate company's. Chapos children and grand children are set for life this always happens I've never heard of a capos family going broke after they get arrested they leave so much in property's and business

  11. Chapo is a legend and we all should be respectful and admire his feats and accomplishments. He has done wonders for the drug business.

  12. Yes he’s done it’s a matter of hours....
