(Trends Wide Español) — This Tuesday a federal judge in Washington sentenced Emma Coronel to 36 months in prison and imposed a fine of US $ 300, since she has given almost US $ 1.5 million to the United States government as funds from drug trafficking.
Judge Rudolph Contreras finds that she does not have the resources to pay a larger bond. Coronel had a nine-month sentence credit already served and will be able to count on 4 years of supervised probation.
The wife of Joaquín “el chapo” Guzmán was sorry and apologized to the judge and all US citizens for the damage that she would have caused with her actions and begged him not to give her more jail time for the sake of her daughters because, according to her, they will grow up without a father and she doesn’t want them to have to grow up without a mother too.
In June, Emma Coronel pleaded guilty to three counts including conspiracy to distribute heroin, cocaine, marijuana, and methamphetamine for import into the U.S., conspiracy to launder monetary instruments, and involvement in transactions and deals of a major foreign drug trafficking organization. designated.
