Wife of Mexican Drug Lord El Chapo Sentencing Delayed in Drug Conspiracy Case

The wife of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was due to be sentenced this month but according to ABC Chicago News, her court date has been delayed.

Former beauty queen, turned drug felon, Emma Coronel, already pleaded guilty this summer in a cartel conspiracy but mysteriously her Washington, D.C. sentencing date was just put off for one month.

In June, Emma Coronel pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute narcotics and financial crimes. She was to be sentenced in two weeks; facing ten years in prison to life; a far more consequential punishment for a 31-year-old perhaps than her 64-year-old drug lord husband.
