The wife of infamous drug lord Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman will spend three years behind bars for helping her husband smuggle drugs into the U.S.

Emma Coronel Aispuro was sentenced Tuesday on charges including drug smuggling, money laundering, and playing a role in her husband's 2014 prison escape.

Coronel, a California native and former beauty queen, was arrested back in February and pleaded guilty to three federal counts, including conspiracy in June.
