Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman’s younger brother Miguel Angel Guzman Loera was released this past weekend from a Mexican prison after serving his reduced 11 year sentence for money laundering.
Guzman at one point was housed in Altiplano, the same maximum prison as El Chapo, until the Sinaloa chieftain escaped in July, 2015 via an underground tunnel leaving his brother behind. Guzman was then transferred to another Mexican prison after his brother’s escape.
“El Mudo” as he is known was arrested in 2005 during his daughter’s Quinceañera in his home town of Culiacan, Sinaloa, home base of the Sinaloa cartel. He was accused of laundering 17 million pesos ($800K) thought to be profits from narco trafficking, by depositing cash in different banks in Mexico under different names.
No word if Guzman will visit his infamous brother in his Brooklyn prison.
