David Bisard transferred to IDOC intake facility

Officials will decide where to house him long term

INDIANAPOLIS - The state has started the process of deciding where ex-Metro police officer David Bisard will serve his prison sentence.

Bisard was sentenced to 13 years behind bars for driving drunk and ramming his police cruiser into a group of motorcyclists, killing one and seriously injuring two others.

Bisard was transferred Wednesday morning to the Indiana Department of Correction's Reception Diagnostic Center in Plainfield.

The facility will evaluate Bisard to decide which prison he'll be housed in while serving his sentence.

Officials consider prior criminal history, length of an offender's sentence and the nature of the crime when decided where to house an offender, according to the IDOC website .

RTV6 reporter Jack Rinehart said Bisard is expected to remain at the intake facility until his trial in Marion County for a separate April 2013 drunken driving charge.
