Emma Coronel Aispuro, 31, was arrested at Dulles International Airport in Virginia in February this year. He has been in jail since this arrest. Coronel Espuro’s attorney, Jeffrey Lichtman, said outside the courthouse that she did not expect her own arrest after her husband was sentenced to life in prison. This is definitely a troubling moment for my client. We will surely overcome this obstacle. The public prosecutor alleged that Coronel Espuro worked closely with the command-and-control structure of the Sinaloa Cartel. This woman helped in smuggling a large amount of drugs. It knew that these drugs were being taken to America. Prosecutors say El Chapo ran a cartel responsible for smuggling cocaine and other drugs into the US during his 25-year reign as Mexico’s most powerful drug lord.

The Court was also told that El Chapo’s « Army of Sicario » or « Hit Men » waited for orders to abduct, torture and kill anyone who came his way. Prosecutor Anthony Nardozzi told the court that El Chapo’s wife aided and encouraged the Sinaloa Cartel’s objectives to smuggle drugs into the US. Emma Coronel helped smuggle more than 450,000 kilograms of cocaine, 90,000 kilograms of heroin, 45,000 kilograms of methamphetamine and about 90,000 kilograms of marijuana to the United States during this period.

However, El Chapo’s lawyer contested this, saying that his client Emma Coronel Aispuro’s involvement in the drug empire was minimal. She was a very small part of this much bigger thing. The whole world was shocked when El Chapo’s wife was arrested earlier this year. She had been living publicly in the US for the last two years, but then no steps were taken to arrest her. During the trial in 2019, public prosecutors said the woman had helped her husband escape from prison. The public prosecutor said that Coronel Espuro acted as a middleman to deliver messages to cartel members after her husband was arrested. Not only that, he conspired with El Chapo’s sons to plan and coordinate their escape from prison.

Courtroom sources said Emma listened silently to all the crimes leveled against her. He fears that if the case goes to a new trial, public prosecutors may prove these charges. When the lawyer asked Emma through a translator whether she had been involved in the crimes reported by the government? In response, Emma simply said ‘yes’. Emma’s lawyer has expressed hope that when her client is sentenced in September, she will face a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison for her crimes.

America’s former teenage beauty queen Emma Coronel Aispuro married Mexico’s dreaded drug mafia Joaquin El Chapo Guzmán in 2007 after turning 18. At that time, the name El Chapo was discussed not only in America and Mexico but also in Brazil, Peru and Argentina. Both of them spend some time together after marriage. In 2012, Emma Coronel gave birth to twin daughters to El Chapo at a hospital in California. Emma hid the father’s name in the birth certificates of these two daughters, as the US had at that time placed a bounty of more than Rs 36 crore on El Chapo’s head. Emma feared that if she revealed her husband’s name, she would also be thrown in jail and the girls would be sent to a care centre.
