Cheers and jeers in the home state of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman following the drug lord's life sentence in the United States. On Wednesday, a federal judge in the US ruled the Mexican drug lord who twice escaped maximum-security prisons in that country will spend the rest of his life in a US penitentiary. Guzman, 62, berated the US justice system, and a former associate described how he had paid a gang $1 million to try to kill her before US District Judge Brian Cogan imposed the mandatory sentence of life plus 30 years.
