After serving two years of a three-year prison term, the wife of notorious Mexican drug lord, Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, was released from prison Wednesday (Sept. 13).
According to Raw Story, Emma Coronel Aispuro After a successful baby bid, she received her freedom papers. In 2021, she was convicted of drug trafficking. El Chapo was married to the 34-year old former beauty since she had been a teenager. It was only matter of time before the 34-year-old former beauty got involved in the life of organized criminality that he controlled with an iron grip south of border.
Whether or not she was a willing participant or forced into that life is anyone’s guess, but her role ultimately landed her in prison alongside her infamous hubby.
Raw Story reports:
During her trial, prosecutors and her defense lawyers said Coronel was not involved in the core business of Guzman’s Sinaloa Cartel, which shipped hundreds of tons of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and other drugs into the United States.
“The defendant’s actual role was a minimal one,” prosecutor Anthony Nardozzi said.
“The defendant was not a leader, organizer, boss or other type of manager,” Nardozzi said. “Rather she was a cog in a very large wheel of a criminal organization.”
Coronel, who helped facilitate Guzman’s spectacular 2015 escape from a Mexican prison, regularly attended her husband’s trial in New York.
Coronel, a dual US-Mexican national, was able move freely in and out the United States until she was arrested in February 2021 at Dulles International Airport near Washington.
At least she is able to return to the luxurious life that was paid for by her drug money.
El Chapo meanwhile isn’t seeing the light of day for the rest of his life as he’s been sentenced to life behind bars without the possibility of parole for his deadly reign as the drug kingpin of Mexico. We’re just wondering if he’s given his wife his blessing to move on with her life. We’re sure there’s plenty of men willing to wife up the former beauty queen who’s sitting on millions with nothing to do on Saturday nights.
Won’t be surprised if Future shoots his shot at some point. Just sayin’.
