Mexican drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman Loera’s wife, Emma Coronel Aispuro, was arrested by the police for her involvement in international drug trafficking. Aispuro was taken into custody by authorities at Dulles International Airport on Monday.
Aispuro was also one of the primary culprits responsible for plotting and executing her husband El Chapo’s infamous prison break in 2015. Despite her role in such a high-profile prison break, Aispuro is not being kept under extra prison security, according to her lawyer.
Aispuro’s attorney told TMZ, Aispuro “does not qualify” for extra security confinement because the authorities do not see her as a security risk. This comes as a surprise, given that she has a history of plotting numerous prison breaks and successfully executing one.
The attorney also revealed that Aispuro is currently being detained at the William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center in Alexandria, VA. It was also mentioned that she has been in a “miserable” mood but was ready to go through this ordeal.
Aispuro’s husband, El Chapo, is serving life in prison and given the severity of her own crimes, one could speculate that she might go behind the bars for a couple of years as well.
