NEW YORK (AP) — Mexican drug kingpin and escape artist Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman was sentenced Wednesday to life behind bars in a U.S. prison, expressing no remorse over his conviction for a massive drug conspiracy that spread murder and mayhem for more than two decades.Instead, a defiant Guzman took a parting shot at a judge in federal court in Brooklyn by accusing him of making a mockery of the U.S. justice system in refusing to order a new trial based on unsubstantiated allegations of juror misconduct."My case was stained and you denied me a fair trial when the whole world was watching," Guzman said through an interpreter.Experts say he will likely wind up at the federal government's Supermax prison in Florence, Colorado , where inmates are held along for 23 hours a day and have little human interaction."Since the government will send me to a jail where my name will not ever be heard again, I take this opportunity to say there was no justice here.

Pauley III made the disclosure in a court filing Wednesday as part of a legal fight over whether to unseal search warrant materials dealing with the investigation.For months, prosecutors had asked that the documents remain sealed because they were still probing payments Cohen helped orchestrate to two women — porn actress Stormy Daniels and Playboy centerfold Karen McDougal — who claimed they had affairs with Trump.While Cohen pleaded guilty last August to charges that the payoffs amounted to illegal campaign contributions, others involved remained uncharged, including Trump himself and executives at the Trump Organization and American Media Inc., the company that owns the National Enquirer.Now, though, prosecutors have informed the court in a sealed filing that they've concluded the investigation, clearing the way for the release of documents related to the case.The judge rejected a request by prosecutors to black out portions of the documents to protect third-party privacy interests, saying the records involved "a matter of national importance.
