Just two days after a Selden man pleaded guilty to killing two teenagers in a car crash, and dealing drugs, he was arrested on heroin possession charges while free on bail and could forfeit his plea deal.

David Heise, 29, was arrested Thursday in Queens on charges of third-degree criminal possession of heroin. He returned to Suffolk County Court Tuesday when prosecutors asked a judge to revoke his bail and put him behind bars. Previously, he was expected to appear Aug. 10 and be sentenced to 1 1/3 to 4 years in prison.

Now District Attorney Thomas Spota, outside the courtroom, said he hopes Judge James F.X. Doyle, who will sentence Heise, "will reconsider the very lenient sentence he promised the defendant."

"This defendant is a true menace to society," Spota said. "He doesn't seem to have any regard for the law. He should go to jail for a long, long time."

Prosecutor Melissa Turk said she will again recommend the maximum sentence of 10 1/3 to 13 years for all the charges.

For now, Judge James Hudson remanded Heise without bail and warned him that Doyle may no longer be bound by the sentence he promised as part of the plea deal. Heise had been free on a $300,000 bond.

Family and friends of victims Eugene Franjola, 17, of Oakdale, and Stephen Massina, 16, of Sayville, applauded as a court officer handcuffed Heise, receiving a rebuke from Hudson.

Heise had admitted before Doyle that at 11:20 p.m. on April 10, 2010, he drove at 54 mph through a red light on Veterans Memorial Highway at Ocean Avenue, broadsiding a car driven by Franjola. Heise also admitted that his license had been revoked at the time for repeated speeding violations.

Four months after the crash, Heise was arrested with about 100 bags of heroin in his underwear, 53 Valium pills and syringes. He will appear before Doyle, who was off Tuesday, on Monday.

Defense attorney Eric Besso said Tuesday he knew nothing about the latest arrest but reiterated that Heise was not high at the time of the crash and was deeply sorry.

"We feel today, at least, justice is served," said Barbara Franjola, Eugene's mother. "We already buried two children. We don't want to bury a third."
