Ex-officer in fatal DWI begins work on appeal

– Lawyers for a former Indianapolis police officer convicted of killing a man and seriously injuring two other people while driving drunk in his police cruiser have taken the first step toward a possible appeal.

The state’s public defender office has requested court transcripts and other documents in the case involving David Bisard and has asked Bisard’s trial lawyer, John Kautzman, for documents and a meeting to review the grounds for appeal, The Indianapolis Star reported.
