"If we can get money out of El Chapo, I'm all for it", Kennedy said.

Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman has escaped the custody several times since he was extradited from Mexico to the United States in early 2017.

In this 1994 file photo, federal corrections officer William Brown stands in the doorway of a typical cell at the US Penitentiary, Administrative Maximum Security facility in Florence, Colo.

As the judge read the verdict, Guzman stared at the jury, and his wife watched the scene, both with resignation in their faces.

Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman started life in a family of poor cattle ranchers in La Tuna, Sinaloa, Mexico.

$3 billion earningsGirlfriend Lucero Guadalupe Sanchez Lopez told the court of their escape: "He was naked".

After sentencing on June 25, Guzman is likely to be transferred to a so-called "supermax" prison in Colorado, sometimes called the "Alcatraz of the Rockies" and considered one of the most secure in the US.

One former prisoner described the lock-up as a "high-tech version of hell, created to shut down all sensory perception".

Such legislation includes financial support for Israel and measures that would ban boycotts of Israel, including the BDS movement. Omar's misstep comes as the Democratic freshman class has burst onto the political scene with no intention of waiting their turn.

While federal authorities have not said for certain where El Chapo will be housed, he's staring at "a sentence from which there is no escape and no return", U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue said after Tuesday's verdict.

ADX Florence's most infamous inmates include Ramzi Yousef, mastermind of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center in NY; convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Unabomber Ted Kaczynski, according to the BOP website.

Rising from the same humble origins in Sinaloa as many other top Mexican capos, Guzman cemented his status as a criminal sensation by breaking out of prison twice, first in 2001 and again in 2015.

Within months of his arrest, Mexican authorities extradited Guzman to NY to face charges.

ADX inmate Mahmud Abouhalima, who was involved in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, described life in his cell on Cell Block H in the supermax jail, according to Boston.com.

Some others expressed sadness at the news of Guzman's conviction in a far-away NY federal courtroom.

Guzman was found guilty of smuggling tonnes of drugs into the United States over a decades-long career built on deadly intimidation and bloody turf wars as he moved illicit shipments across continents at lightning speed.
