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.

Bisard was convicted in November on nine counts. Allen County Superior Judge John Surbeck sentenced Bisard to 16 years in prison but suspended the last three years.

The Allen County court has 90 days to provide the transcripts.
