A federal judge in the United States ordered this Tuesday to temporarily detain, without the possibility of bail, to Emma Coronel Aispuro, the wife of the Mexican drug lord Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán, accused of drug trafficking.
Emma Coronel, arrested this Monday in the state of Virginia, outside Washington, faces a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum of life imprisonment, in addition to a possible fine of 10 million dollars, if she is found guilty of the criminal charge in her against.
During the first hearing on the case, Judge Robin Meriweather, of the federal court of the District of Columbia, agreed to the request of the Prosecutor’s Office to keep her temporarily detained in Virginia before the trial, considering that there is a “serious risk of flight”.
