After evading authorities for decades, the Mexican drug cartel boss Joaquín Guzmán Loera, was convicted in a Brooklyn federal courtroom yesterday.

His exhaustive three-month long trial uncovered shocking details from the kingpin's life, including his 2015 prison escape, the worldwide reach of the cartel, and burying a rival alive. While the verdict is certainly a victory for American law enforcement, did it make a dent in the operations of the Sinaloa cartel or is it business as usual? Find out here.
