Flores brothers imported 38 tons of cocaine from El Chapo

The Flores brothers were fixtures in Chicago's Little Village. They learned the cocaine trade from their dad. By age 17, Margarito and Pedro Flores were jointly operating a cocaine franchise in Chicago on behalf of drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. Pedro Flores told the federal jury in New York that they returned over $800m in cash back to the Mexican cartel.
The Flores pleaded guilty in their own case and are currently serving 14-year prison sentences while in witness protection. El Chapo, if convicted, is facing a mandatory sentence of life.
