RONKONKOMA - Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota is calling for a tougher sentence for a Selden man who admitted to killing two teenagers in a car crash, and has since been arrested twice on drug charges.
Earlier this month, David Heise pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide for running a red light in Ronkonkoma and slamming into a car, which resulted in the deaths of Eugene Franjola, 17, and Stephen Massina, 16.
Heise also pleaded guilty to unrelated drug charges and was released on bail. Last Thursday, Heise was arrested in Queens on new drug charges and made bail again.
"He's a menace to society, he cannot be on the streets any longer," says Barbara Franjola, the mother of the 17-year-old crash victim.
Today, Spota got a judge to revoke Heise's bail. He has also expressed disappointment with Judge James F.X. Doyle for offering Heise the minimum jail sentence of one-and-a-third to four years for his guilty plea.
For now, Heise will remain behind bars at the Suffolk County Jail. Next Monday, the district attorney is expected to go before the judge to ask for a harsher sentence for the accident and drug possession charges.
