El Chapo Guzmán's wife released from prison, but what's next for the notorious drug lord's spouse we wonder.

Emma Coronel: The First Lady of Cartels

Emma Coronel, 34, the wife of the infamous Mexican drug lord Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, has been released from prison after pleading guilty to drug trafficking charges in November 2021. This high-profile release has captured the attention of the world, and many are wondering what lies ahead for this enigmatic figure.

Emma Coronel's Release:

Emma Coronel (also known as Emma Modesta Coronel Aispuro), left a halfway house in California after being moved there from federal prison in June. This move followed her initial sentencing, which was later reduced, paving the way for her release. Her husband, El Chapo Guzmán, is currently serving a life sentence in a supermax jail in Colorado.

El Chapo Guzmán, now 66, was found guilty in 2019 of leading the notorious Sinaloa cartel, a transnational criminal organization responsible for smuggling vast quantities of drugs, including cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamines, and heroin, into the United States. The cartel's ruthless tactics included kidnapping, torture, and murder of rival gang members, as well as corrupting police officers and politicians in Mexico and Central America.

Emma Coronel's connection to the world of drug cartels began when she met Guzmán at the age of 17 while participating in a local beauty pageant. Their relationship formalized when she was 18, although the legality of their marriage remains uncertain. Coronel, who holds dual US-Mexican citizenship, gave birth to twin daughters in California in 2011, ensuring their US citizenship.

El Chapo's Escapes and Coronel's Role

El Chapo's audacious escapes from prison in 2001 and 2015, including the latter through an elaborate tunnel, thrust him into the global spotlight. During his time on the run and behind bars, Coronel was accused of playing a pivotal role as a messenger for her husband, relaying orders to cartel members and his sons from previous marriages, known as the Chapitos.

Courtroom drama and unwavering loyalty. Throughout her husband's trial in New York, Coronel made daily appearances in court, maintaining an impeccable appearance. She publicly defended her husband, portraying him as an "excellent father, friend, brother, son, partner." When El Chapo was found guilty in 2019, the couple exchanged thumbs-ups in a dramatic courtroom moment.

Emma Coronel's Arrest and Sentencing

Despite her claims of innocence, Coronel was arrested at Dulles airport in February 2021. Prosecutors argued that she was well aware of her husband's criminal activities and the extent of the Sinaloa cartel's drug trafficking. She eventually pleaded guilty to drug trafficking and money laundering, leading to a three-year sentence, which was later reduced, ultimately leading to her release.

What lies ahead for Emma? Emma Coronel's future plans remain shrouded in mystery. However, her husband's recent letter, in which he expressed the desire for their 12-year-old daughters to visit him, suggests that she may travel to Colorado to be with him during designated holiday periods. The world continues to watch the saga of Emma Coronel and El Chapo Guzmán with bated breath, as their captivating story unfolds once more.
