INDIANAPOLIS — A former Indianapolis police officer sentenced to 13 years in prison for causing a fatal crash while driving intoxicated in his police cruiser won't spend extra time in prison for a second drunken driving conviction.David Bisard pleaded guilty to drunken driving in the second case Wednesday in a Marion County court and received a one-year suspended sentence. Alcohol treatment and monitoring will be part of his probation after he leaves prison.

In the second case, Bisard was arrested last April after he crashed his pickup truck.

Bisard was convicted in November of causing a 2010 vehicle accident that killed one motorcyclist and severely injured two others.

Defense attorney John Kautzman says the prosecutor's case was based on Bisard's reputation.
