RIVERHEAD - A Riverhead judge says he will sentence a Selden man accused of killing two teens after plowing into their car to the maximum sentence if he pleads guilty.
Two Suffolk families were outraged after the judge was considering a plea bargain that would include a year of jail time for David Heise, who is accused of killing their teenage sons.
Today, the judge said that Heise would see the maximum sentence possible if he pleads guilty to criminally negligent homicide.
Heise is accused of running a red light and plowing his truck into a car on Ocean Avenue in Ronkonkoma last year.
Eugene Franjola, 17, and Stephen Massina, 16, were killed.
Investigators say Heise had a history of drug arrests and was driving with a suspended license.
Heise is only accused of driving without a license. He was not tested for drugs the night of the accident.
He is also facing up to nine years in an unrelated drug case.
Heise is due back in court on May 10.
