Emma Coronel, 31, the wife of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, Mexico’s most notorious drug lord, pleaded guilty to federal charges of conspiracy to distribute narcotics, conspiracy to launder money, and engaging in unlawful financial transactions involving a designated narcotics-trafficking organization, the Sinaloa cartel.
Coronel, wearing a green jail uniform, entered the plea in a federal court in Washington, six months after she was arrested at Dulles International Airport, upon arrival on a flight from Mexico; and nearly two years after Guzman was sentenced to life prison plus 30 years for engaging in a continuing criminal enterprise as well as drug trafficking and firearms charges as leader of the Sinaloa Cartel.
