Story By Kailey Burton


WAUSAU - After months of scrutiny Marathon County Sheriff Randy Hoenisch made his retirement official.

In an email to the county clerk Hoenisch he gave his last day as this Saturday, March 23rd.

Recently Hoenisch has been criticized for spending just two hours in his office in 2013. He's also been under fire for his wife Kim Hoenisch's criminal activity. She was accused of stealing painkillers from parolees while working as a probation officer for the county. She was found guilty in January of burglary, possession of narcotics and possession of a drug without a prescription.

Hoenisch's retirement papers are on their way to Governor Walker. The Governor will pick a new sheriff.
