He faces a possible sentence of life in prison. The notorious cartel boss, born Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, has been on trial in NY, which featured testimony from multiple witnesses.
In this courtroom drawing from February 7, Joaquin Guzman listens to Judge Brian Cogan addressing the jury.
The tension at times was cut by some of the trial's sideshows, such as the sight of Guzman and his wife, Emma Coronel Aispuro, showing up in matching burgundy velvet blazers in a gesture of solidarity.
In a statement after the verdict, lawyers for El Chapo said they were "obviously disappointed" but respectful of the jury's decision.
The defense's strategy centered on attacking the credibility of the cooperating witnesses - former secretaries, pilots, cocaine suppliers, Guzman's top trafficker in the United States, a manager, an accountant, a former communications chief, and even a former lover.
Guzman spoke in the courtroom only once during the trial, saying he would not testify in his own defense, NBC News reported.

While the trial was dominated by Guzman's persona as a near-mythical outlaw who carried a diamond-encrusted handgun and stayed one step ahead of the law, the jury never heard from Guzman himself, except when he told the judge he wouldn't testify.
The trial testimony lasted almost three months and the jurors have were tasked with deciding on 10 separate counts. "Here at your service".
Chapo was detained by the Mexican government in 2014 but escaped a year later. "He left us behind".
The global notoriety of Guzman was boosted by two escapes from Mexican custody, one in 2001 and another one in 2015 - through a 1.5km underground tunnel large enough to ride a motorcycle. In 2014, he pulled off another jail break, escaping through a mile-long lighted tunnel on a motorcycle on rails.
The trial unfolded like a real-life telenovela, with Guzman's former beauty queen wife Emma Coronel in the audience and a parade of her husband's lovers and henchmen taking the witness stand under the gaze of the onetime Sinaloa cartel chief. "In front of you".
