Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, separated from two years and a half years, is expected to serve his sentence in the nation's most secure federal prison in Florence, Colorado
" He goes to Supermax, I'm sure, in Colorado, "said Guzman's lawyer Jeffrey Lichtman in CNN's" New Day "the day after he was convicted.
Where is he now? Until he was transferred, Guzman remained at the Metropolitan Correction Center, a federal prison in Manhattan. She can visit members of her legal team any day of the week, and be allowed to receive a phone call from her sister every 15-20 days, lawyer Mariel Colon said.
But when he moved to Colorado, lawyer visits could be more limited, he said.
Why Supermax is important: Guzman's evacuation history considers the minds of prosecutors, both during his trial and after his beliefs. Guzman escaped from prison in Mexico twice.
In 2001, Guzman survived hiding in a laundry cart. He spent the next 13 years hiding in and around his home state of Sinaloa.
He was recovered in 2014, but he escaped from the Mexican prison a second time, on July 11, 2015, by a tunnel his colleagues built directly into his cell.
