David Bisard, the IMPD officer who struck a group of motorcyclists three years ago, killing one and injuring others while intoxicated on duty, has been sentenced to sixteen years in jail.
While he has expressed remorse, he's still maintaining he wasn't drunk at the time. The jury disagreed and the judge has made undergoing treatment for alcohol abuse a part of Bisard's sentence.
Still to come: a second DUI charge, stemming from an incident while he was out on bond; that DUI put him back behind bars and he's facing an additional year in jail if found guilty.
And yes, it's "former officer:" he resigned this week, before IMPD could get around to firing him.
