Druglord, El Chapo’s Wife Finally Sentenced To Three Years In Prison

A US judge sentenced Emma Coronel Aispuro, wife of jailed Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, to three years in prison Tuesday on charges of drug trafficking and money laundering.

The sentence was less than the relatively light four years requested by prosecutors, with the judge acknowledging that Coronel was only a teenager when she married the ruthless drug czar and she readily pleaded guilty after her February 2021 arrest.

With long hair and dressed in a dark suit and white turtle neck shirt Coronel, a 32-year-old former beauty queen, apologised to the court.

“I express my true regrets for any and all harm that I may have done,” she said in Spanish before the sentence was announced.

“I am suffering as a result of the pain that I caused my family.”

She asked the judge to make it possible that she be allowed to raise her twin nine-year-old daughters.

“They are already growing up without the presence of one of their parents,” she said.

Thirty-two years her husband’s junior, Coronel met him in her mid-teens and they married when she turned 18.

Coronel became the object of intense fascination when she regularly joined the audience at his trial in New York after he was extradited from Mexico in 2017.

Tall, with long dark hair, tight-fitting clothes and lots of make-up, Coronel would smile at Guzman and blow him kisses as she attended the trial almost every day for three months, sometimes bringing their daughters so they could see their father.

Guzman was sentenced in July 2019 to life in prison.
