Published: September 21, 2015

13 arrested in escape: El Chapo Escape, The Mexican Attorney General’s Office says a federal judge has ordered jail and a trial for the former director of the maximum security prison from which notorious drug lord Joaquin “el Chapo” Guzman escaped.

The person was not named, but Monday’s statement says that the ex-director of the Altiplano prison in Mexico state will be tried on charges of aiding in the July 11 escape of Guzman.

On Friday, authorities had announced that 11 men and two women were arrested in connection with the escape. Officials had previously identified the prison’s former director as Valentin Cardenas Lerma. He was forced to resign after the escape.

Guzman escaped the prison through a long tunnel that emerged in a hastily built structure far outside the prison’s perimeter.
