At the request of her lawyers and the District of Columbia Prosecutor's Office, Emma Coronel will receive her sentence on October 14 or later, instead of September 14 as expected.

"Due to other obligations that have arisen and the nature of this case, both parties (prosecutor's office and defense) believe that additional time is necessary to prepare adequately for the sentence," reads the letter from lawyers and the government, according to the Univision website.

Among others, the lawyers of Emma Coronel, Mariel Colon Miro and Jeffrey Lichtman, as well as Arthur G. Wyatt, who directs the Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs section, among others.

It is reported that the letter stipulated that Emma, her lawyers and the prosecutors had received a draft determining their sentence proposed by a probation officer, but that neither party agreed and needed more time for everyone to agree with the decision.

Emma Coronel was arrested at the Dulles-Washington airport on February 22 of this year and since then has been held at the Alexandria Detention Center, located in the state of Virginia.

According to Proceso magazine, the fact that she has pleaded guilty "is an indication that she negotiated an agreement with the US Department of Justice to provide information on what she knows about the operations of the Sinaloa Cartel, in exchange for a benevolent sentence. ”.

The magazine proposes that Emma Coronel could receive a sentence of five years in prison instead of receiving life imprisonment, which generally corresponds to the charges against her "as a reward for her collaboration and even with the possibility of becoming a cooperating witness. ".
