(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Attorney for David Bisard, John F. Kautzman, released the following statement Wednesday evening on the Bisard family's behalf:
The Bisard family first and foremost wants to again extend their ongoing sympathies to the Wells, Weekly and Mills families. We also want to express our appreciation to friends, fellow law enforcement officers and the FOP for their support.
The criminal allegations stemming from the 2010 incident are separate and distinct from any other allegations. Guilt or innocence in one instance does not equate to guilt or innocence in another. All cases are to be judged independently, involving a review of the particular facts and circumstances relating to each case.
Accountability for his actions, legal or otherwise, rests solely with David - not his wife, daughters, or parents. We ask that the media please respect the privacy of our family members.
While we continue to believe that the evidence proves the conduct in 2010 was not criminal, the fact remains that the lives of numerous people have been changed forever. We can only hope that a fair and thorough examination of the evidence through the court process will someday results in additional insight and perspective as the entire community attempts to move forward.
