Source: NBC News

“The wife of ‘El Chapo,’ one of the world’s most powerful drug lords, has agreed to plead guilty to helping him run his Mexican cartel, according to court documents unsealed Wednesday. Emma Coronel Aispuro was arrested in February at Dulles Airport in Virginia and charged in federal court with helping her husband’s drug empire import tons of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, and marijuana into the United States. She will appear by video to enter her plea Thursday morning, according to an entry on the federal court docket.” [editor’s note: Is there a US federal court in Mexico, where the Sixth Amendment would require any trial to be held if she pleaded not guilty (“the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed”)?
