NEWYORK (Reuters) – Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, convicted last month of smuggling tons of drugs to the United States, on Tuesday asked a U.S. judge for a new trial.

In a filing with the federal court in New York, Guzman’s lawyers said they believed that juror misconduct deprived their client of his constitutional right to a fair trial.
