A judge of USA will give sentence to Emma Coronel Aispuro this Tuesday, wife of the Mexican drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman.
In June Emma Coronel Aispuro pleaded guilty to three crimes: conspiracy to traffic cocaine, methamphetamines, heroin, and marijuana; money laundering, and participation in property transactions belonging to a drug trafficker.
In the middle of this month prosecutors in the District of Columbia called for a sentence of four years in jail and five years of probation for Colonel Aispuro. They also asked that an order be approved to seize more than 1.4 million dollars, according to documents filed in the electronic system of the US federal courts.
Federal Judge Rudolph Contreras would impose the sentence after noon.
Prosecutors say that Coronel Aispuro benefited financially from her husband’s criminal activities. They also say that in July 2015 the wife of “El Chapo” helped Guzmán escape from the Altiplano prison in the state of Mexico. The Mexican made it through an underground tunnel.
Colonel Aispuro has been in jail since she was arrested in February this year at Dulles Airport in Virginia.
