Bisard was sentenced to 13 years behind bars after an Allen County jury found him guilty of all nine charges lodged against him.

Bisard was found to be drunk when he crashed his patrol car into a group of motorcyclists in August of 2010, killing Eric Wells and gravely injuring Mary Mills and Kurt Weekly.
