WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) - The attorney for a former state Department of Corrections probation agent says his client admits she has an addiction and is cooperating with authorities.

Forty-one year old Kim Hoenisch has been charged with stealing prescription drugs. The Wisconsin Department of Justice says Hoenisch was working in the Wausau field office when she stole Vicodin from probationers while they were taking urine tests last summer. State agents say she also admitted taking Vicodin during a visit to a probationer’s home last year, plus thefts on at least two additional occasions.

Charges against Hoenisch include felony drug possession and misconduct in office. Hoenisch is the wife of the Marathon County Sheriff.
