The famous drug lord El Chapo’s beauty queen wife is celebrating her recent release from prison by having a party at Los Angeles nightclubs.
On September 13, Emma Coronel, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán’s third wife, was released from prison after serving two years for drug trafficking and money laundering.
She completed two-thirds of her sentence while under home arrest.
According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Coronel left the halfway house in California and will now spend the next four years under close supervision.
Celebrating her newfound freedom, the beauty queen took to clubbing in LA. She attended an event at a venue known as El Farallon, held by her attorney, Mariel Colón Miró, who’s now a singer.
34-year-old Emma Coronel married the cartel leader when she was just a teenager.
She was arrested in February 2021 at Dulles International Airport. She ultimately pleaded guilty to multiple federal drug charges including conspiring to distribute heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana. She admitted to helping her husband move at least 450 kilograms of cocaine, 90 kilograms of heroin, and nearly 90,000 kilograms of marijuana into the US.
She was sentenced to three years in prison by a US judge in November 2021. She completed 31 months of the 36-month sentence.
Prior to her release, Coronel was transferred from a federal prison in Fort Worth, Texas, to a halfway house facility administered by Residential Reentry Management in Long Beach, California, on May 30, 2023.
