Emma Coronel Aispuro, 32-year-old , who holds dual citizenship of the United States and Mexico, the wife of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, was sentenced on Tuesday to 36 months in federal prison for conspiring to distribute cocaine, meth, heroin and marijuana for import into the U.S; also for money-laundering and helping run the Mexican drug cartel in which her husband was the boss. She will also serve 48 months of supervised released. Because Coronel has no prior criminal convictions she was able to avoid a minimum 10-year sentence for her crimes. About a half year ago, she pleaded guilty, and voluntarily forfeited $1.5 million to the government.

Aispuro, through an interpreter, promised she will teach her daughters right from wrong. Her husband was previously sentenced to life in prison, in 2019. Judge Rudolph Contreras said her role was a small piece of a much larger organisation.
