Even though jurors in the trial of the Mexican drug lord Joaquín Guzmán Loera have spent nearly three months in the courtroom, they seem to be in no rush to go home. In a day and a half of deliberations, they have already written four notes with substantive questions and requests for evidence, including one that asked for more than a week’s worth of testimony from three witnesses.
It is difficult to glean much information from a jury’s notes, but those that have been sent so far by the jurors in this case suggest that the panel is making a genuine effort to sort through more than 10 weeks of testimony and exhibits.
That is a daunting task, not only because of the volume of the evidence, but also because jurors must work through an eight-page verdict sheet with 53 boxes that must be checked “Guilty or Not Guilty,” “Proven or Not Proven,” or simply “Yes or No.”
The verdict sheet is based on the indictment charging Mr. Guzmán, who is best known as El Chapo, with 10 separate counts, the most important of which accuses him of being a leader of a “continuing criminal enterprise” from 1990 to 2014.
The enterprise count is composed of 27 violations, most of which allege that Mr. Guzmán arranged specific drug deals, from 400 kilograms of marijuana to nearly 20 tons of cocaine. There is also a murder conspiracy violation that claims he either personally killed or ordered the deaths of dozens of people.
The other counts accuse Mr. Guzmán of making, importing and distributing drugs; using firearms to further his operation; and conspiring to launder the profits of his empire.
Complicating matters, four of the violations listed under the enterprise charge are also included as separate counts on the verdict sheet. Another twist: the jury cannot consider the firearms and money laundering counts, unless it first finds that Mr. Guzmán is guilty of at least one of the drug counts.
On Monday morning, it took Judge Brian M. Cogan, who is handling the case, almost three hours to instruct the jurors on how to proceed. By the end of the day, they had sent the judge two substantial notes, which illustrated the complexity of the their task. One asked if “a drug war” could be thought of as a drug trafficking crime that would trigger their consideration of the firearms charge. The other note asked if ephedrine — an ingredient in methamphetamines — was the same as the drug itself.
On the second day of deliberations, in Federal District Court in Brooklyn, the jury made two additional requests concerning Mr. Guzmán’s role in trafficking methamphetamines. They asked to rehear an intercepted phone call of the kingpin clearly discussing selling the drug. They also asked to be read testimony from a witness who said he once met with the man in charge of methamphetamine production for Mr. Guzmán’s organization, the Sinaloa drug cartel.
It was harder to discern the meaning of another request the jury made: They asked Judge Cogan to provide them with the entire eight-day testimony of Jorge and Alex Cifuentes-Villa, two Colombian brothers who worked closely with Mr. Guzmán.
To avoid reading the testimony aloud in court — which could easily take days — Judge Cogan suggested giving the jury a transcript. But that required redacting sidebars and the answers to questions the judge ruled should be struck from the record. The jury did not receive a copy of the transcript by the time court ended Tuesday afternoon.
The jury also requested the entire testimony of Juan Aguayo, a United States border agent who testified about seizing a load of marijuana from three panga boats that washed up on the shore of Santa Barbara, Calif., in 2012. Three men were arrested in the seizure after federal agents found them hiding, wet and sandy, behind a pile of rocks.
The jurors are expected to hear Mr. Aguayo’s testimony Wednesday.B:
