Santiago.- Former Latin American Idol winner Martha Heredia broke in tears Tuesday and begged society’s forgiveness, and admitted her guilt on charges of trafficking heroin,  before a three-judge panel court in her native Santiago.

The pop singer spoke to the media while awaiting a hearing of her trial in Santiago Courthouse.

Heredia was arrested February 20, 2013, as a drug mule when security at Cibao International Airport using x-rays detected several packets in various pairs o f shoes later determined to be heroin.

She worked so hard to gain the fame to succeed in the industry and she decided to throw it away for a quick buck, idiot!

Bling is addictive. Flashy cars, flashy clothes, flashy shoes...being able to buy anything at anytime, anywhere. This is the draw.

She is a cute girl and she will bounce back.

She deserves less than those guys that growth up in the Barrios and did it because they needed to do something to survive because the society that we live in does not give them the chances that she had and she blew it. Now she must pay the price for what she did. A guy in the barrio gets arrested for selling a few bags of weeds and they go to jail for a least 3 years and this girl was trying to smuggle 1 Kilo of heroin into the USA.

How come they are making an example out of her......and NARCO Lie-onel loaned $30 million dollars to a Spanish drug lord to build a NARCO Apartment Tower and accepted a campaign contribution from a Known international Drug Dealer and yet he is walking around freely...... not even being investigated..... when he should be in the Noriega Hilton in Miami!

We shouldn't jump to judgement because we don't know her circumstances, She could have been brainwashed by someone she trusts. I know a lady who was acting as a mule for her Husband now she is in jail in Mexico for 25 years. These days it's hard to trust anyone.

Do you mean she deserves less sympathy?.

If you are, I agree with you 100%.

She had no need to be mule........she has something named "talent" working for her.

He is old enough to know right from wrong.........

Plain and simple, she was greedy, trying to make a fast buck without thinking about all the people she was hurting.

Again, throw her in jail, throw away the key and let her become "Antonia's" new girlfriend.

Problem with this type of cases, you need to show the girl sympathy and cut her a deal if you want to get to her boss/pimp otherwise you only catch a small fish.

I feel for this woman. She may have artistic talent but it does not absolve, or shields her from manipulation by the criminal minded. I'm willing to bet she wasn't the author of this scheme, but merely a pawn in the game of smuggling.
I can't stipulate as to the circumstances which led her to this end, but in the world of music and performance, drugs, alcohol, and sex are the norm, rather than the exception. One could easily fall into a pattern leading to addiction, manipulation, and even death.

But unfortunately for her, she must pay the penalty of "adjudication by association", and contributory negligence on her part.
She is more guilty of stupidity and naivete than greed. Experiences, sometimes, can be very dear and repressive. Live and learn.

Me fascina como un loco viejo como JoseAnus rapidamente vincula a leonel con todo lo malo que hace cada una de los 10 millones de personas que viven en Santo Domingo...

Trying to smuggle to the USA is not a good thing. She would get 60 months right off the bat. Of course she would get leniency if she ratted out higher ups. No sympathy for this girl. They are all teary eyed when caught. Those drugs would go to get someone else's kid addicted. Drop her in an Oubliette and forget about her. Do that to all drug mules, and dealers and importers. A deep deep dark oubliette with no food or water. Let them die there.
