El Chapo complained about New York jail. Let's see how Supermax works out.

Notorious drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán, unhappy with his treatment at a federal lockup in New York during and after his trial on drug trafficking charges, probably won't find his permanent federal digs at the "Supermax" prison in Colorado much more amenable.

A federal judge in Brooklyn sentenced Guzmán last week to life in prison plus 30 years. He was handed a restitution bill of more than $12 billion.

Guzmán made a rare public statement at his sentencing, chastising authorities for conditions at New York's Metropolitan Correctional Center that he equated with "torture." He said he was denied access to sunlight and forced to drink unsanitary water. He said he had to use wadded-up toilet paper as earplugs to sleep amid noise from an air vent near his cell.

Guzmán, 62, lit into authorities for keeping him from his wife, Emma Coronel Aispuro, and young twin daughters.

“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,” Guzmán said. "It has been psychological and mental torture 24 hours a day."
