The former American beauty queen is accused of participating in a conspiracy to distribute cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana for import into the US.
El Chapo is the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, Mexico’s largest and most violent drug gang. He was sentenced to life in prison in July 2019.

Apart from being accused of being the “queen” of large-scale drug distribution, Aispuro was also accused of planning to help her husband escape from Altiplano prison in Mexico. El Chapo’s escape on July 11, 2015 was notoriously complicated because he escaped from a large tunnel under the prison.
Aispuro, a dual US-Mexican nationality woman, married El Chapo in 2007. The woman was a supporter of her husband’s trial in Brooklyn two years ago, although in the end El Chapo was still sentenced to life in prison.
US prosecutors alleged that Aispuro was not only aware of his role as leader of the ruthless Sinaloa cartel, but he was also acting as an intermediary to help with drug trafficking operations.
According to a written statement about his arrest issued by the US Department of Justice, between 2012 and 2014, when Guzman, now 63, went into hiding from Mexican authorities, his wife allegedly “delivered a message” on his behalf “of continuing drug trafficking activity.”
