2 prison guards sentenced in suspected Mexican drug lord’s escape

MEXICO CITY – Mexican authorities say two prison guards have been sentenced to eight and 19 years in jail, respectively, for helping suspected drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman escape in 2001.

The federal Attorney General’s Office says Carlos Ochoa and Victor Godoy were guards at the Puente Grande federal prison in the western Mexican state of Jalisco when Guzman escaped. They were in charge of manning the prison’s gates.

The office announced the sentences in a statement issued Wednesday.

Guzman is the alleged leader of the Sinaloa cartel. Investigators say he escaped from Puente Grande in a laundry cart after bribing guards.
