Emma Coronel Sentenced to 36 Months in Federal Prison for Drug Trafficking

"Socalj" for Borderland Beat


This Tuesday, the wife of Joaquín el “Chapo” Guzmán was sentenced to three years in prison. She would be released in January 2024.

Emma Coronel, wife of the founder of the Sinaloa Cartel, Joaquín el Chapo Guzmán will spend 36 months in a United States prison. The judge of the District of Columbia, Rudolph Contreras has imposed a sentence of 36 months in prison on Tuesday for drug trafficking and money laundering. The sentence was not a surprise, since Coronel was pointed out by prosecutors as a minor participant in the drug trafficking issue.

Accustomed to expensive designs and high stilettos, Emma Coronel, 31, heard this Tuesday with shackles on her ankles, thinner and paler, the charges that the US Department of Justice imputes to her. The former beauty queen is accused of collaborating with El Chapo in drug trafficking and money laundering.

Coronel had the right to speak before the sentencing, a moment that she took the opportunity to ask the judge for clemency to be able to return with her twins. United States prosecutors wanted Coronel to be sentenced to 48 months in prison on the grounds that she was just a cog in the Sinaloa Cartel. Contreras, however, issued a shorter sentence, of which the nine months she has been in jail in the United States will be taken into account. Guzmán Loera's wife could be released in January 2024 or earlier if she shows good behavior.

Before hearing the court ruling, it was said that Coronel had reached an agreement to obtain a sentence reduction. The accusations were denied by the defense chaired by Jeffrey Lichtman and Mariel Colon. In fact, Lichtman tried to dismantle the rumors by saying that Coronel did not know anything about the operation of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The attention of the US justice system is now directed towards Los Chapitos and Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada, who would be in charge of the Sinaloan criminal organization. In 2019, the government of that country filed charges against two sons of El Chapo; Joaquín and Ovidio, the latter of whom was captured and released by the authorities in October of that year.

11:12 Coronel is identified by Judge Rudolph Contreras as a minor participant in the trafficking of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and marijuana to the United States. This will allow Coronel to obtain a lesser sentence.

  4. Like I said. Those with money are more easily to get a slap on the wrist. There wasn't justice served today. Rather, the continuous shakedown by government officials for lienenci.

    What a farce on the war on drugs.

  10. Sapeo, that’s why she only got 3. When she got popped at the airport, it was all for show. She was actually turning her self in but they had to make it look like she was getting arrested so I did not look suspicious. Chapitos already wanted to whack her before because she knew to much. Who only gets 3 yrs. out of possible life? Only a sapo. It’s witness protection for the buchona queen.

    2. mijo you dont know how the justice system works in the Us. ni que fuera(emma) familiar de los zambadas to be snitching

    3. Yes I do mijo. Snitch to get a reduce sentence. Rule 35 mijo

    4. mijotito its apparent that you don't. Did you know they rather have you accept a plea deal than go to trial because they rather not waste time and money. most times you get a lesser sentence than what they first ask for. when you accept a plea depending on no priors, money, good behavior and lack of evidence they'll give you a good or decent deal. if she would have gone to trial and lost she would have gotten life or what they first asked. 4 years of probation is a bitch tho she can easily mess up and catch a violation

    5. No shit. But who gets 3 from looking at possible life, only a snitch, that’s how the feds work mijo, they scare you with a life sentence and make you snitch to get a lighter sentence. That’s how the government works mijo snitch and get a lighter sentence.

    6. you really dont need to snitch to get a reduced sentence shit sometimes even if you snitch they fuck you over. In state and federal they always try to scare you with a big number at first but it always goes down even with a shitty lawyer but if you have a good lawyer they can lower it way more plus what i already said on the last comment helps a lot as well.

  12. Extremely weak case I'm surprised she was even arrested a really good lawyer would have gotten her off completely but then they would have had to risk life imprisonment on these bulshit charges she wasn't in charge of nothing!! Any cooperation with the government is not going to result in any substantial action against the Sinaloa cartel!! That's just the US government grandstanding that they're tough on drugs!! It will make wealthy Mexicans who have been stealing from here people and involved in the drug trade not come to United States on their spending sprees like general Cienfuegos!!
