The conviction of drug lord Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman in the United States is a lesson that a life of crime and easy money doesn't bring happiness, Mexico's President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Wednesday.

Lopez Obrador told reporters that allegations in the trial of bribes paid to former presidents could be investigated if a formal complaint emerged in Mexico, but that his preference, politically, was to prevent future corruption rather than dwell on the past. Jurors on Tuesday found Guzman guilty of all 10 counts, including running a criminal enterprise, in a trial that began in November in New York.
