WOR EXCLUSIVE: Lichtman Talks About Next Steps For "Mrs. El Chapo"


Defense Attorney Jeffrey Lichtman, who will be representing El Chapo's wife during her trial, told WOR’s Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning exclusively this morning that what she is being charged with are old crimes.

"These are charges from years ago,” said Lichtman. “The allegations are things that occurred in 2014, 2015, 2016. There is nothing new. It's not like there are allegations that she is dealing drugs now."

Berman asked Lichtman whether he will attempt to get bail for “Mrs. El Chapo,” Emma Coronel Aispuro. "We are probably going to make a bail application, but not today,” said Lichtman. “This is a carefully-handled thing. You've got to get a package together, you've got to get letters together from people in the community suggesting that she isn't a flight risk, and you only have one shot so you have to do it and do it right.”
