'El Chapo' likely heading for Colorado prison where no one has escaped

'El Chapo' likely heading for Colorado prison where no one has escapedNo one has broken out of Administrative Maximum Facility (ADX) in Florence, Colorado, since it opened in 1994 to house the most dangerous inmates in the U.S. prison system. “ADX is the kind of prison that was designed for a high-profile inmate like El Chapo,” Larry Levine, a former federal inmate who is the director and founder of Wall Street Prison Consultants, said in a phone interview. U.S. authorities have been tight-lipped about where Guzman will be imprisoned.

'El Chapo' faces prison for life, but Mexico drug trade persists

'El Chapo' faces prison for life, but Mexico drug trade persistsGuzman, 61, was found guilty on all 10 charges in federal court in New York after an 11-week trial that revealed the inner workings of the Sinaloa Cartel, Mexico’s biggest drug gang. While Guzman has been effectively removed from the drug trade, a former associate has taken over the reins of the cartel, one of many gangs that smuggle drugs from Mexico to the United States. Largely because of that, the trial has not changed the “rules of war” against the drug trade, security analyst Alejandro Hope said, aside from perhaps scaring cartels into exercising more caution after testimony revealed how law enforcement infiltrated Guzman’s networks.

In ‘disgust,’ judge threatens Flynn with prison, but delays sentencing

In ‘disgust,’ judge threatens Flynn with prison, but delays sentencingThe sentencing for former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn, scheduled for Tuesday morning, was unexpectedly postponed after a federal judge said Flynn’s conduct left him with “disgust,” and indicated he was considering a prison sentence — even though prosecutors had recommended no jail time for the retired three-star general. Flynn’s admitted crime of lying to the FBI while occupying a top post in the Trump administration, and his acceptance of a six-figure lobbying contract from a foreign government while serving as a national security adviser to Trump during the campaign “undermines everything this flag stands for,” Judge Emmet Sullivan lectured the defendant in a blunt tirade that startled the packed courtroom. Former national security adviser Michael Flynn arrives for sentencing hearing at U.S. District Court in Washington.
