Full Answer

Carlos Lehder and George Jung met as cellmates at Danbury. Jung taught Lehder about smuggling, and Jung was introduced to the cartel by Lehder. Jung was always hesitant about introducing Barile to Lehder because he feared that would cut himself out of the operation. He did later introduce the two men to each other, and Lehder betrayed Jung and went straight through Barile, just as Jung had feared. Although Lehder ended up betraying Jung, George was able to recover at the time, making more than $100 million off other schemes.
