WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) A plea deal is in the works for a former state probation agent from Wausau, who’s charged with stealing pain-killers from offenders she supervised. Online court records show that a plea hearing has been scheduled January 28th for Kim Hoenisch, the wife of Marathon County Sheriff Randy Hoenisch.
Her attorney, Harry Hertel, tells the Wausau Daily Herald that he believes a resolution has been reached with state prosecutors. He said there are special circumstances, and they’ll come out at the plea hearing – and he said he realized that Hoenisch needs to be held accountable for quote, “her past mistakes.”
She was fired from her state job December 19th, two days before she was charged with three drug possession counts, burglary, and misconduct in office. Prosecutors said she repeatedly stole pain-killers from clients at her office, and at homes where she did not have permission to go in.
