Jeffrey Lichtman, Ovidio Guzman’s defense attorney, asked for more time to analyze the evidence, which includes documents, videos, and audio at today’s arraignment before Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman of the Northern District of Illinois, Chicago.
Both parties agreed to request more time and the next hearing will be held on March 18, 2024.
The son of Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, charged with 12 counts of drug trafficking, was received by Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman.
In previous hearings, El Raton was formally indicted for conspiring to distribute drugs, being part of a criminal enterprise, exporting narcotics to the United States, conducting financial transactions with the proceeds of illegal activities, and unlawfully using and carrying firearms, to which Guzman Lopez pleaded not guilty.
According to Univision, Ovidio appeared in court much thinner and with a different appearance. He listened to the interpreter for 10 minutes and left escorted by prison guards.
