WAUSAU, Wis. -

A former state probation and parole agent convicted of stealing prescription drugs has been sent to the Taycheedah women's prison in Fond du Lac County.

Forty-one-year-old Kim Hoenisch was sentenced to 18 months in prison after she was convicted of burglary, misconduct in public office, possession of narcotics and possession of a drug without a prescription. Hoenisch stole drugs from at least six victims, including several clients she supervised.

Hoenisch is a former employee of the Wisconsin Department of Corrections in Wausau and the wife of former Marathon County Sheriff Randy Hoenisch.

She was sentenced early this week and held in jail until she was transferred to prison Thursday. The Daily Herald Media says Hoenisch will spend an additional six years on probation following her release from prison.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
