On July 17, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was sentenced to life in prison, plus 30 years. The 62-year-old kingpin was allowed to speak before his sentencing and spent those 15 minutes thanking his family, legal team, and supporters, but also spoke on the judicial system which he believes failed him.

“Since the government will send me to a jail where my name will not ever be heard again, I take this opportunity to say there was no justice,” the New York Daily Newsreports Guzman said through a translator. “You denied me a fair trial while the whole world was watching … What happened here is very clear, that the United States is as corrupt as any country.” Guzman felt that the case was rigged from the start, and openly asked why they put him on trial at all.

With this sentence, Guzman is likely going to die in prison on U.S. soil. It’s being speculated that he’ll serve his sentence in a Supermax facility in Florence, Colorado.
