Indiana Supreme Court denies transfer of ex-officer's appeal in fatal crash conviction


INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Supreme Court won't hear an appeal from a former Indianapolis police officer convicted of killing one motorcyclist and seriously injuring two others while driving drunk in his police cruiser.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry announced the state's highest court had denied transfer of David Bisard's case from the Indiana Court of Appeals. The appeals court in March had upheld Bisard's 2013 convictions on nine counts of drunken driving, reckless homicide and criminal recklessness stemming from the 2010 crash.

Curry says Bisard has now exhausted all of his appeals.

Bisard is serving a 16-year prison sentence.

Bisard was on-duty with a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit when his cruiser plowed into motorcycles stopped at a traffic light on the city's east side.
