El Chapo’s wife Emma Coronel released
Emma Coronel Aispuro, the wife of Mexican drug lord Joaquin Guzman, nicknamed El Chapo, has been released from an open prison in the US.
Emma Coronel Aispuro, the wife of world-famous Mexican drug lord Joaquin Guzman, nicknamed El Chapo, who was imprisoned in the open penitentiary in Los Angeles, has been released.
Officials from the US Federal Bureau of Prisons confirmed Aispuro’s release in a statement, saying that for privacy and security reasons, no further information could be provided about the people whose detention period has ended.
AISPURO WILL BE ON PROBATION FOR 4 YEARS
Aispuro, who has regained his freedom, will be on probation for the next 4 years. During this period, Aispuro is required to reside in the place designated by the court and notify the authorities of any change of work or home address.
TRANSFERRED TO OPEN PRISON
Aispuro was arrested at Washington Dulles International Airport in the US on February 22, 2021, after it was determined that he was involved in Guzman’s business, and spent three years in prison. Last June, Aispuro was transferred from prison to an open prison in the US state of Texas.
SHE HAD ACCEPTED THE CHARGES
Aispuro, who was tried in federal court in the US after her arrest, was sentenced to 3 years in prison and 4 years of supervised release after she pleaded guilty in a hearing on November 30, 2021 to charges that she helped Guzman’s drug trafficking business and acted as an intermediary between her husband and other partners of the cartel while he was in prison.
On the other hand, Guzman, the former leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, is being held in Supermax Prison in Colorado, USA, to serve his life sentence.
