Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was Wednesday sentenced by a federal judge in Brooklyn to life in prison, marking a humiliating end for a drug lord widely said to be notorious for his ability to kill, bribe or tunnel his way out of trouble.
Guzman will likely end up at the federal government’s “Supermax” prison in Florence, Colorado, known as the “Alcatraz of the Rockies.”
Colorado’s bleak Supermax prison is where the United States incarcerates the ‘worst of the worst’ criminals.
Most inmates at Supermax are given a television, but their only actual view of the outside world is a 4-inch window. They have minimal interaction with other people and eat all their meals in their cells.
