El Chapo: Mexican Drug Lord’s Wife Released From Jail


Mexican Drug Lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán’s wife has been let out of a US prison.  Emma Coronel admitted to trafficking drugs, and in November 2021, she was given a sentence of three years in prison, which was later reduced.


According to the federal Bureau of Prisons, her release came after she served her three-year term for assisting El Chapo in managing his multibillion-dollar criminal enterprise. Prior to her release, Coronel Aispuro was transferred from a Texas jail to a California halfway house after entering a plea agreement with federal prosecutors in 2021 and admitting guilt to three criminal offenses.

She will now undergo supervised release for four years. Emma Coronel Aispuro pleaded guilty to charges related to money laundering conspiracy and engaging in dealings with a foreign drug trafficker, and she expressed “true regret for any and all harm” at the time of her sentence. Prosecutors claimed that she allegedly assisted her husband in organizing a daring prison break in Mexico in 2015 by slipping him a GPS watch disguised as food.

Her husband is incarcerated in a Colorado supermax prison for the rest of his life. In 2019, El Chapo Guzmán, 66, was convicted guilty of leading the Sinaloa cartel. US law enforcement officials estimate that the international criminal organization with headquarters in Mexico transported more than 1,000 tonnes of cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamines, and heroin into the US.

To increase their control, the cartel’s hitmen abducted, assassinated, and tortured members of competing gangs. Additionally, the Sinaloa cartel bought off senior politicians and law enforcement officials in Mexico and throughout Central America so they would ignore drug shipments or even inform them of planned searches.
