He escaped from a high-security prison by disappearing through the floor of his cell and from another by hiding in a laundry car.
However, it is unlikely that the infamous Mexican drug lord El Chapo will ever escape his next destination.
The grim Supermax prison in Colorado is the place where the United States imprisons the worst of the worst, and if it gets convicted in June, it's almost inevitable that he'll spend the rest of his days there.
"It is a sentence from which there is no escape and no return," US attorney Richard Donoghue said after the verdict.

El Chapo was last captured in Mexico in 2016 after more than a year on the run. He has twice escaped from prison over the last 20 years to humiliate the Mexican authorities he and his associates have long claimed are corrupt
The once most powerful criminal in the world, Joaquin & # 39; El Chapo & # 39; For decades, Guzman, who has been influencing Sinaloa's ubiquitous international drug smuggling cartel, will trade life for beauty queens and money-filled private jets known as "Alcatraz the Rockies."
Here, detainees are locked in tiny concrete cells 23 hours a day, with almost no human contact. Certainly, El Chapo will not mix with other inmates, including former London hated cleric Abu Hamza, British "shoe bomber" Richard Reid, and Boston marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
No wonder that the recently released video of the cold-blooded cartel chief tears him down after being brought to New York by the US authorities two years ago. Once known as "untouchable," he knew that the moment he left the jurisdiction of Mexico, it was all over for him, where endemic corruption had long allowed him to be virtually impunity.
After a three-month trial in Brooklyn, which provided an impressive picture of a multi-billion dollar crime syndicate at work, he was found guilty on Tuesday of all ten charges.
Condemned for having sentenced a huge operation to murder, kidnapping and torture, threatened with a life sentence with no chance of parole and an unlimited chance of ever finding an empty laundry cart – let alone an accomplice pushing him. Guzman, the burly and poorly educated son of a farmer, was delivered to the United States in January 2017 because Mexico just could not hold him.
America's only Supermax jail – its official name is ADX (which stands for Administrative Maximum Facility) Florence – does not have this problem. Since its opening in 1994, no one has ever escaped.
Guzman is likely to be sent to the only arrest scheduled to imprison the highest-risk prisoners in federal criminal law – the Administrative Maximum Facility (ADX) in Florence, Colorado, 90 miles south of Denver
Known as the Supermax or "Alcatraz of the Rockies," the facility opened in 1994 and houses 402 inmates in specially-designed "control units" serving as prisons in prisons
It is ideal for accommodating thugs like El Chapo, whose syndicates are still in operation.
Former ADX overseer Robert Hood has called the Supermax a "life after death". , , In my opinion, it is far worse than death. "Others call it" prison "," inhumane "and" worse than Guantanamo ".
Its 410 inmates are transported in buses, armored cars, and even Black Hawk helicopters to the sprawling 37-acre facility, located about 115 miles south of Denver. A dozen tall gun turrets and razor wire fences surround the network of squat, hardened brick buildings patrolled by heavily armed guards with fierce dogs around the clock.
Specially designed "control units" act as prisons within prisons, and inmates are housed in their 7 x 12 foot reinforced concrete cells for at least 22 hours per day. The walls are thick and soundproof so that the prisoners can not communicate with each other.
The bed is a cast concrete slab covered with a thin mattress and blankets, and there is a combined toilet, sink and drinking fountain.
The only furniture is an immovable concrete desk and stool, and for some prisoners a small black and white television showing carefully selected educational and religious programs.
Each cell has a slot-like, four-inch-wide window, which is angled so that there is no view of the sky or other cells.
This is to prevent inmates from even finding out where they are in prison. A former prisoner described Supermax as a "high-tech version of hell that was supposed to suppress all sensory perceptions."

If an inmate needs a doctor, he must talk to him by conference call. The contact with the guards is also severely limited. Meals that are eaten alone in the cell are pushed through small holes in the doors.
When inmates are taken outside their cells, they wear leg irons, handcuffs, and tummy tucks – and even they are accompanied by guards. Hundreds of cameras monitor their movements as metal doors open and close along their route.
A daily rest hour is allowed for the inmates to move around in an outdoor cage slightly larger than the cells and built into a concrete pit that resembles an empty swimming pool.
However, it is likely that El Chapo will end up in the Special H-Security unit, which is also reserved for terrorists and others whose communication with the outside world requires strict controls.
Some prisoners here do not even have contact with the guards when they exercise. Their cells have automated slides that open to private yards.
H-hat inmates can only be visited by their lawyers and their immediate family and make phone calls through reinforced glass windows. All calls are monitored except for legal legal discussions.
No wonder El Chapo, now 61 years old and listening to a translator, seemed puzzled when the verdict was read and looked at his wife, Emma Coronel, who was unconvincedly keeping his fingers crossed even though she had tears in her eyes.
The prosecution said the 5-meter El Chapo, whose nickname is shorty, amassed $ 14 billion worth of assets and is responsible for 33 murders and trafficking in more than 220 tons of cocaine, as well as large amounts of other drugs in America, Europe and beyond Be responsible.

The hearing heard 200 hours of testimony from 56 prosecution witnesses. Among them were 14 "cooperating witnesses" – mainly his former criminals – who were dismissed by the defense as "lifelong liars" willing to marry in return for reduced sentences.
After the technology chief of El Chapo was also convinced of the cooperation, the prosecutor also provided surveillance photos, picked up phone calls and text messages.
Lawsuit between soap opera and horror movie. El Chapo's love for bling – his diamond-studded pistol engraved with his initials, and he had a gold plated AK-47 assault rifle – only the private life of his playboy.
He kept a number of "Nekomistresses" and fathered at least 15 children with different women.
When one of his friends proclaimed her immortal love for him, even though she testified against him, his 29-year-old wife – a lush former beauty queen – mockingly laughed at the court's second row of public seats.
The following day, husband and wife wore identical red velvet smoker jackets in a seemingly coordinated solidarity show.
The court heard El Chapo entertaining a private zoo, including tigers, lions and panthers, traveling on a miniature railway.
Witnesses told how he and his men would train with a bazooka and planned to murder a victim with a cyanide cake.
One said that El Chapo wanted to kill him by playing a threatening song to a mariachi band all night in front of his prison cell – before a hand grenade was thrown in.
El Chapo enjoyed his fame and the celebrity that he gave him. He once agreed to interview Hollywood star Sean Penn while on the run and had worked on a documentary about his life before his final arrest.
At the end of the trial, when he heard that Alejandro Edda, an actor who plays him in the Netflix series Narcos: Mexico, was in the courtroom watching him, he smiled happily.

"The detainees really have no contact with other inmates, all their movements are controlled," Horn told Reuters. "You get limited privileges, limited contacts. … It's a difficult place to spend time. & # 39;
However, the prosecution also revealed the brutal brutality of a drug lord who first became famous in 1993 when he was held responsible for the murder of a Roman Catholic cardinal at Guadalajara airport.
Witnesses said El Chapo personally tortured and then murdered three members of a rival cartel, one of whom he had buried alive. Other bodies were thrown on campfire.
He would shoot his own men in the head when a drug shipment was delayed. The prosecution also provided evidence that El Chapo and his followers frequently used and raped under-age girls who were 13 years old.
Alex Cifuentes, once the right-hand man of El Chapo, sensationally claimed during the trial that Guzman had paid former Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto a $ 100-million bribe in 2012 to keep him out of hiding. A spokesman for Mr. Pena Nieto has called the bribery claim "false and defamatory".
Top officials in other Mexican authorities were also accused of bribery, including a public security chief who put three million dollars in two suitcases.
Police and officials often guarded the smuggling operation of the cartel and warned El Chapo of threats, according to the trial. His two outbreaks of jail were almost certainly linked to corruption.
The cartel of El Chapo used fishing boats, trucks, trains, radar planes, passenger cars, submarines, oil tankers and tunnels to bring drugs to the border. Even cocaine was smuggled into shoeboxes and cans of jalapeno peppers.

After being imprisoned twice and having fled twice – once in the laundry basket in 2001 and again in 2015 over a purpose-built, kilometer-long tunnel with a motorbike on rails and electric lights – El Chapo was inevitably obsessed with his own safety.
Under his various houses and safe houses, he built more complex tunnel systems, one hidden under a bathtub and one under a pool table.
El Chapo's prison years in Mexico were hardly hard. Corrupt guards and officials allowed him to live like a lord, entertaining preferred inmates with fine wine dinners, lobster bisque, and filet mignon.
He continued to take care of the phone calls and satisfied an insatiable sexual appetite – he is said to have consumed Viagra "like sweets" – by summoning prostitutes through the busload.
ADX Florence will be a shock to El Chapo. An Amnesty International report from 2014 concluded that the severe regime of solitary confinement and sensory deprivation had devastating effects on the mental and physical health of detainees.
Two years earlier, a class action lawsuit on behalf of mentally ill prisoners called for many of them to "howl, scream, and beat against the walls of their cells," or mutilate their bodies with all sorts of objects.
Authorities object that even inmates in the H-lodge can write letters, train in their cell phones, talk on the phone for up to 30 minutes a month, and write books.
El Chapo was obsessed with the public – he worked hard to convince the ordinary people of Mexico that he was a raving Robin Hood of today – the chance to work on an autobiography could be the only consolation of his serious life.
In Supermax he will certainly have some distractions.
