For Joaquín “el Chapo” Guzmán, behind are the days of parties and champagne with his friends or lovers, as in the case of the well-known “drug deputy”, Lucero Sánchez.
Although he was considered the most powerful drug trafficker in Mexico, he is currently imprisoned in a high security prison in the United States.
Sánchez López was appointed to spend the New Year next to the capo and leader of the Sinaloa Cartel in 2016, when she was a deputy of the National Action Party (PAN).
Guzmán Loera and Sánchez López spent the end of the year parties in Guamúchil, Sinaloa, according to notes published by various international media.
On that occasion, the parliamentarian denied having any relationship with the drug trafficker, even saying that she had seen him, but never closely.
The Mexican deputy was always romantically linked with Chapo Guzman, to the point that they called her the “chapodiputada.”

“I have seen him (” El Chapo “), but not closely (sic), I have never talked with him, nor do I have a relationship with him, whom I have only seen from far away sometimes,” he said on that occasion.
“Society does not have to judge me. Only two people can judge me: God and a corresponding authority, “said the deputy, according to the note published on the twnews.ch portal.
After the accusations, the deputy offered a press conference of just four minutes, before entering the session hall of the local Chamber of Deputies. The legislator, in said conference, asked the authorities to investigate her because until that moment she had not received any summons.
“They already grabbed me by their little pig,” Sánchez López said on that occasion, assuring that the Christmas and New Year dates of that year had been spent with his family and not with the boss.
On that occasion, the National Security Cabinet of Mexico reported that “El Chapo” had spent Christmas with his family and the New Year with the deputy for the 16th district of the municipality of Cosalá, Sinaloa, Lucero Guadalupe Sánchez López. It was a clandestine meeting, according to the information published by the Mexican newspaper Excelsior.
Despite her refusals, the truth would later become known between the legislator and the drug lord. Lucero and Joaquín met when she was still very young and he was the leader of the Sinaloa cartel.
Their lives crossed in 2011 and from that moment on, a relationship began that led the woman to become involved in the world of drugs and drug trafficking.
A native of Cosala, Sinaloa, Lucero had a complicated life. At age 21, he met “El Chapo” Guzmán.
After “El Chapo” was captured a second time, Sánchez López visited him in the Altiplano maximum security prison with a birth certificate and false identification.
The images of his visit were released by the media. It was thus that it was found that the still PAN legislator visited the capo in jail. After the dissemination of the images, Lucero was dismissed as a legislator and began to be known as “Chapodiputada.”

Indicated of having links with the Sinaloa cartel and threatened by Chapo’s enemies, Lucero escaped to the United States in search of asylum, but was arrested in that country in June 2017, accused of conspiracy to traffic drugs. After the kingpin’s arrest, she testified against him.
Some portals like TMZ o Infobae They published some details of what Guzmán Loera’s dinner would have been like during “his raw and cold Christmas” at the prison.
According to the site, his Christmas dinner was “quite modest” if you take into account the end-of-the-year holidays that the once powerful Sinaloa cartel boss has spent at his luxurious properties.
Their dinner would have been a Cornish hen (a kind of small commercial hen from the USA), and for dessert, peanut butter cake.
According to the publication, the prison also had some Christmas activities such as “drawing, painting and a musical talent show,” it says Infobae.
