How the case of El Mochomo may be a factor in the case of El Chapo...........
There are indictments against Chapo in six federal districts. The feds say they decided to prosecute Chapo in Brooklyn, with the assistance of Miami federal prosecutors, determining the two offices working in conjunction would bring the strongest case against Chapo. Below is the Florida indictment. Notable is they are charging him with 5 counts and asking for a life sentence.
There are two other co-defendants in the indictment. One is Jorge Milton Cifuentes Villa. He is the leader of the Colombian Cifuentes Villa drug organization.
It was the Sinaloa Cartel connection to Cifuentes Villa, that authorities were able to connect Chapo's father in law, Inés Coronel Barreras, father of Emma, as the connection or liaison between the Colombians and Chapo. And according to the Florida indictment was one of Chapo's money launderers, funneling money into the United States.
