(CBS NEWS) – Mexican drug kingpin Joaquín Guzmán, better known as “El Chapo,” was sentenced to life plus 30 years in prison by a federal judge in Brooklyn Wednesday.

Guzmán, who was convicted in February on murder conspiracy and drug charges, was also ordered to pay $12.6 billion in money he made off his drug business.

Guzman’s long tenure as head of the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico is filled with details only seen in Hollywood movies: gangland-style murders, massive political bribes, diamond-encrusted guns, and clandestine escapes from prison through underground tunnels.

Through it all, Guzman built a billion-dollar criminal enterprise trafficking heroin, cocaine, marijuana and synthetic fentanyl into the United States.
