Mexican drug lord Joaquin Guzman, alias “El Chapo,” was found guilty Tuesday by a New York jury after a three month drug trafficking trial and six days of deliberation.

The verdict could result in life behind bars for the 61-year-old former head of the Sinaloa cartel, who was accused of smuggling 155 tons of cocaine and other drugs into the United States over a 25-year-period.
