Jurors in federal court in Brooklyn began delivering their verdict following an 11-week trial.
Guzman was convicted of smuggling over 200 tons of cocaine to the U.S. over a 25 year period, earning billions of dollars in profits for his cartel, then the world's largest, and now faces a life sentence.
The 61-year-old Guzman broke out of Mexican prisons twice before he was finally recaptured and extradited to the U.S. in 2017. Unlike other people in a similar position, Guzman would not plead guilty and went for a public trial after being extradited to the US. He was free at that point after a dramatic escape in which he tunneled out of a Mexican prison.

They heard how Guzman made a name for himself in the 1980s as "El Rapido", the speedy one, by building cross-border tunnels that allowed him to move cocaine from Mexico into the United States faster than anyone else. Asked what he was wearing, she said: 'He was naked. "He left us behind". Perhaps most famously, he escaped a Mexican prison in 2015 through an elaborate tunnel that included an adapted motorcycle on rails.
