- The state fired a probation agent from Wausau just days before she was charged with stealing prescription drugs.
One week ago, prosecutors charged Kim Hoenisch with felony drug possession and misconduct in office.
Court documents say Hoenisch worked in a Department of Corrections field office in Wausau.
She's accused of stealing Vicodin from probationers while they were taking urine tests.
The complaint also said she stole Vicodin from one of the probationer's houses and from her cousin's house.
DOC officials issued a statement Thursday saying they terminated Hoenisch on December 19th for what they called failure to exercise good judgment.
Agency Secretary Ed Wall said when department officials learned of Hoenisch's alleged conduct they immediately asked the state Justice Department to investigate.
