Wausau Probabtion Agens Pleads in Prescription Theft Case

29 Jan News

A fired Wisconsin probation agent accused of stealing prescription drugs has pleaded no contest.

The Wisconsin attorney general’s office says Kim Hoenisch (HAY’-nish) entered pleas yesterday to charges of misconduct in public office, burglary, possession of narcotic drugs and possession of a drug without a prescription.

The court accepted the pleas and found Hoenisch guilty. She’ll be sentenced April 25.

Wisconsin prison officials fired Hoenish last month, two days before she was formally charged. Last summer, she reportedly entered a residence of a probationer in search of pain medication. She was also accused of later taking the probationer’s medication when the probationer was at her office.

The defense plans to ask for probation only and no prison or jail time.
