El Chapo Trial: "Government's request for [a sentence of] life plus 30 yrs is a farce"

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat

Chapo’s attorneys:

After the trial that convicted El Chapo, a juror came forth alleging jury misconduct.  The juror contacted VICE to share information of what transpired during the trial.

There was discord between Chapo’s attorneys, over how to handle the information.

One attorney wanted to subpoena Keegan Hamilton [of Vice] to obtain  his notes, video or recording of the interview with the juror.  The other two attorneys did not want a fight with VICE.

In the end there was no subpoena and the argument presented was weak with the defense presenting only the article written by Hamilton.

In the sentencing next week, we will have an opportunity to actually hear from Chapo.  I think he should not be held back as it will be his only opportunity to say his piece.  I always thought he should have testified, it would not have changed a thing but his peace of mind.


Attorneys have the habit of holding back a convicted client from speaking because of appeal.    In this case that is virtually a moot point and if he doesn’t speak, regret will be his cell mate to the end of his days. 

From Balarezo:

Although I no longer represent Mr. Guzman, here is my statement concerning the government’s filing  [in full below] of tonight:

“The government’s request of life plus 30 years is a farce. Joaquin’s conviction and incarceration for drug trafficking will change nothing in the so-called war on drugs. And, for the same government to obtain a 17 year sentence for Vicente Zambada shows the corruption of the criminal justice system. Sing like a canary, true or false, and reduce your sentence. As long as you do what the government wants you to do, you will be fine.”

  1. This is yet another bleeding heart that has absolutely Z E R O milliseconds of life south of the border, the fear of you or your loved ones becoming a victim under the directorship of someone like El Chapo. This makes fertile ground for lawyer jokes only there is no humor in seeing tiny children gunned down "Oops" doesn't cut it. You undoubtedly live in a white enclave. If you returned home to find everything valuable stolen to support a drug habit REPEATEDLY you may take a different tack. Chapo, mencho, they all were living like feudal lords at the expense of the utterly innocent, and you sir, never have gotten a stone in your shoe over it. You are utterly disconnected from life and perhaps need to seek a different profession. Normal people do not live at the blood expense of others. I stand repugnant.

    2. Shut yo ass up you acting like america never did its evil deeds so because members of the sinaloa cartel killed or kidnapped people thats like saying we should lock up all the nephews or grandsons or whatever of those people who hanged blacks or killed native Americans oh i forgot i cant compare that because el chapo is Mexican and an illegal alien to the United States but United States are so damn eager to lock him up and make the cartel give up 12 billion and have him serve time in the United states for crimes he did in Mexico lol am I the only WOKE individual who sees the BS in what this country's government is trying to do . Or do everyone believes what the constitution scripts out and really think this country goes by it lmao you have No Idea on how shit really works in this world .

    5. Mexico did not have to send el Chapo to the USA . But Mexico delivered him anyway. On a Mexican jet. Mexico illegally sent him to the USA to be locked up. The USA wanted him but Mexico is the one that gave him up.... so what are you talking about 135? How does it work?

    6. United states smuggled loads of coke to Nicaragua in the 80's and late 90's and the clintons smuggled coke through MENA ARKANSAS but everyone to busy worrying about a damn drug dealer from mexico but aint got the research or dont do research of crimes committed by America plenty of them from drug smuggling to cointel pro to kidnapping to child pornagraphy all governments are involved direct with crime organizations after all they did help them get to where the crime organization stand today . Look at what the Italian mafias achieved in this country from cops being bought like in mexico judges being bought like in mexico infiltrate politics like in mexico its all the same shit . Theres a bigger picture to all of this dont be naive and sit there and say that mexicans come to America either way well of course we have lived hete for thousands of years along with our black African brothers and native brothers until america , great Britain , spain ,france all came over to colonize US and you still expect for us just to sit still and let yall destroy us or control us Na homie you gringos have it all wrong . You said it yourself keep a human locked up or controlled and you will see them act like savages well you want your immigration laws but cant start with WHITE IMMIGRATION LAWS then expect Consequences for your actions because when there is an Action there will always be a Reaction . Remember that shit .

Every government has ties to cartels just like how our special forces trained los Zetas and CJNG sicarios as long as you pay what the governments ask for you are more then welcomed to use our services and bring in your drugs lol how else do you think your american Doctors get all those drugs from lol why do you think America has the Opium crisis mean while they guarding and protecting opium fields in Afghanistan lol BECAUSE AMERICAS GOVERNMENT CREATED THE OPIUM CRISIS WITH THE VERY SAME SHIT THEY ARE GUARDING HOW WELL THEY SELL IT TO THE ASIANS AND THE ASIANS SELL IT RIGHT BACK TO THE CARTELS IN MEXICO AND THE CARTELS IN MEXICO BRING IT ON TO AMERICAN SOIL AND WAALAAAA THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT HAS OFFICIALLY CROSSED OVER ITS OPIUM WITH OUT EVEN TOUCHING IT ( PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY ) IS HOW THE GAME WORKS . ONCE YOU LEARN HOW THE GAME WORKS YOU FIND A WAY TO CONTROL IT WITHOUT EVEN TOUCHING IT EVEN THO IT BELONGS TO THEM BUT ONCE THE GOOD GUYS ON OUR AMERICAN SOIL CATCHES A LOAD GUESS WHAT HAPPENS NEXT . FOX NEWS , CNN NEWS , START REPORTING A DRUG BUST OR OPIUM BUST THAT SUPPOSEDLY BELONGED TO THE CARTELS LOL BELIEVE ME IN MEXICO THEY DONT NEED OPIUM BESIDES THE FIRST PLACE THEY STARTING USING THE TERM OPIUM WAS AFTER THE WAR IN AFGHANISTAN LIKE I SAID ) EVERYTHING IS POLITICAL AND POLICY AND DENIABILITY

    14. 628 since ya u are a marine you should know you don’t threaten the president of the US like el chapo did.
      And you should know that when you join the marines YOU belong to the USA government. Too bad if you don’t like your employer. You should also know covert wars are fought by ALL governments in probably all countries . You are not the presidente but your input is welcome until it involves say, Korea. North Korea has threatened the USA with nukes. North Korea kills it’s marines for shit you just posted....

Everyone has to pay bills.

  16. El Chapo is PERSONALLY responsible for the deaths of hundreds of people, including the innocent, likely thousands. Google 'Angel Acosta in death' and watch the group of IDIOTS El Chapo sent up into the territory of La Linea, idiots who were there just long enough to kill some innocents themselves and hang a narcomanta from a bridge before being captured, all 9 in total. And their capture without a fight speaks to how poorly prepared those 4th-grade-education idiots were. Chapo is anything but a saint. He sent hundreds of men to their deaths, men who committed atrocities against other traffickers and the innocent before starring in their own gruesome finale. http://www.borderlandbeat.com/2010/09/sinaloa-captive-video-reveals.html

  18. ALL THEATER!

    The gov is attempting to demonstrate how well our tax dollars were spent on the drug war and this trial specifically.

    and now asking for restitution for "victims"??? the gov has loss their minds. In the trial it was revealed by chapo's own words and orders not to kill innocents. those killed were his perceived enemies. they were in the life doing the same things as all narcos. for money to be asked for is ludicrous.

    each and every narco know that going into this life may lead to death.

    It demonstrates the stupidity of the government, now portraying narcos and associates as innocents.
