Talk about going from national hero to nothing in a very short time
. Three years ago, Martha Heredia won Latin American Idol and the President of the Dominican Republic told everyone of the citizens of the country to vote for her. She was so popular at the time that she could have won a presidential election. Then, thanks to bad management who did not take advantage of her fame correctly and some very poor decisions and actions by Martha including killing a boy with her car when he was running across the street and a marriage which had the 22 year old calling police frequently about being beaten. Yesterday Martha was arrested after police found 3 pounds of heroin in the heels of her shoes as she was boarding a flight from the Dominican Republic to New York City. She faces 10 years in jail if convicted.
