El Chapo’s brother and 2 others indicted on drug trafficking charges

A federal grand jury in Tucson returned superseding indictments in November 2019 and February 2020 against cartel members Aureliano Guzman-Loera of Sinaloa, Mexico, along with brothers Ruperto, Jose, and Heriberto Salgueiro-Nevarez of Guadalupe Y Calvo, Mexico, according to a press release from the US Attorney’s office on Friday.

One year after being sentenced, 'El Chapo' is hoping an appeal can get him out of Supermax, his lawyer says

“The indictments allege various violations of United States law related to the international dispensing of controlled substances, including fentanyl, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana, occurring over several years,” the release said.

In February 2019, El Chapo was convicted on 10 counts, including engaging in a continuing criminal enterprise, conspiracy to launder narcotics proceeds, international dispensing of cocaine, heroin, marijuana and other drugs.

He is serving his life sentence in Colorado’s Supermax prison.

The wife of El Chapo, Emma Coronel Aispuro, pleaded guilty in June in a federal court in Washington to drug trafficking and money laundering charges related to her husband’s narcotics empire.
