El Chapo’s Wife Emma Coronel Aispuro Set To Be Released From Prison Today

According to prison records, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s wife is scheduled to be released from her halfway house in California on Wednesday.

She had been sentenced for her involvement in running the Mexican drug cartel, of which her husband was the leader.

In November 2021, Emma Coronel Aispuro was given a 36-month federal prison sentence for her involvement in money laundering and conspiring to import cocaine, meth, heroin, and marijuana into the U.S. Additionally, she was instructed to pay fines amounting to nearly $1.5 million.

In June, Aispuro was transferred from a federal prison in Texas to a halfway house in Long Beach, California, prior to her release.

According to an official from the Bureau of Prisons, inmates who have demonstrated good behavior in federal prison are typically transferred to a halfway house up to six months prior to their release.

In February 2021, she was arrested at Dulles International Airport, which is located just outside the nation’s capital. Later that year, she was convicted of drug trafficking and money laundering charges by a jury in Washington, D.C.

During her sentencing, Aispuro pleaded for forgiveness and promised, through an interpreter, that she would teach her daughters the difference between right and wrong. She fervently requested that they not be deprived of a mother’s presence as they grow up.

Aispuro was accused of conspiring with others to help her husband escape from Altiplano prison in July 2015. Prosecutors also claimed that she, along with others, had planned another prison escape for the drug kingpin before he was extradited to the U.S. in January 2017.

In February 2019, El Chapo was convicted of leading an industrial-scale drug trafficking enterprise known as the Sinaloa cartel, which is recognized as one of the largest, most lucrative, and most merciless drug smuggling organizations globally.

Since being sentenced to life in prison, he has attempted to appeal the conviction.
