Emma met El Chapo, real name Joaquín Guzmán, when she was aged just 18 and competing in a beauty pageant in 2007.

El Chapo was approaching 50 at the time and had travelled to the pageant, held in Canelas, Mexico, with the specific intention of meeting Emma.

She was born near San Francisco, California, while her mother was visiting relatives there. Emma consequently has dual American-Mexican nationality.

It took the prolific El Chapo’s child count to at least 11, although estimates for the definitive figure vary.

Emma is accused of being among those who helped him escape but El Chapo was arrested again in January 2016.

She appeared on reality TV and launched a clothing line that she said is inspired by her and her husband’s style.

But now it is thought she could face up to 10 years in prison.

The indictment against Emma says she grew up with knowledge of the narcotics trafficking industry due to her family’s close ties to the cartel.

Despite El Chapo’s life sentence, the US Drug Enforcement Administration said in March that “the Sinoloa Cartel maintains the widest national influence” in the United States.
