scales of justice

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)  The trial for the former Indianapolis police officer convicted of killing a person while he was driving drunk in his squad car cost more than $25,000, according to documents released Wednesday.

That trial was held in Allen County because David Bisard’s lawyers claimed he couldn’t receive a fair trial in Indianapolis.

In November, a jury convicted Bisard of causing a crash in 2010 that killed one person and hurt two more.

The expenses incurred during the trial amounted to $25,588, including housing in the Allen County Jail and medical expenses.

Marion County will cover all of the costs.
