The wife of notorious Mexican cartel boss Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán partied at a Los Angeles club days after she was released early from federal custody over drug trafficking charges.
Emma Coronel Aispuro, 33, arrived at an event put on by her attorney, Mariel Colón Miró, at the Lynwood venue El Farallon Friday night with an entire entourage by her side, TMZ confirmed.
Enjoying herself on a couch in a private VIP section of the club surrounded by a massive presence of security, the former teenage beauty queen was seen sipping on drinks and making up for lost time with friends.
“As soon as I get out I’m going straight to FARALLON,” the club, located south of Los Angeles, captioned the post of Coronel Aispuro on the red carpet.
The outlet reported she was mostly left alone throughout the night as she began her adjustment to life outside federal custody.
Miró, 29, who’s also a singer performing under the name La Abogada — which translates as “the attorney” in Spanish, performed a song for her client during the event.
Coronel Aispuro was released from federal custody Wednesday morning after she spent two years in a California halfway house.
In November 2021, she was sentenced to three years in federal prison after pleading guilty to drug trafficking and money laundering conspiracy charges related to her husband’s Sinaloa cartel.
She was initially housed at a federal prison in Texas but moved to an undisclosed transitional facility in California.
Coronel Aispuro was also ordered to pay almost $1.5 million in fines in addition to her prison sentence.
She will serve four years of supervised release.
Guzmán, her husband and head of the Sinaloa cartel, was convicted in 2019 for engaging in a continual criminal enterprise and other counts of distributing tons of cocaine in the US.
He had escaped Mexican prisons in 2001 and 2015 before being recaptured in 2016 before he was recaptured and extradited to New York to stand trial.
He is currently serving a life sentence at Colorado’s ADX Florence Supermax prison.
Before Coronel’s arrest, she was accused of helping orchestrate her husband’s 2015 escape.
On Friday, Guzmán’s son Ovidio Guzmán López was extradited from Mexico to the US and faces a series of drug trafficking and money laundering charges.
