JEFFERSON, Wis. -

A former Jefferson County sheriff's sergeant has been bound over for trial on theft and misconduct charges.

A criminal complaint says Timothy Madson filled out multiple expense reports as supervisor of the Jefferson County Drug Task Force from 2003 to 2011. It says Madson received more than $20,000 in reimbursement from task force funds. The complaint says he sought reimbursement for work performed by other officers he supervised on the task force. Madson was in charge of approving those expense claims.

A conviction on the theft charge could send Madson to prison for ten years. A conviction for misconduct in public office is punishable by a maximum 3 1/2 years in prison.

The state Department of Justice investigated the case.
