UNDATED (WSAU) There are new legal problems for Kim Hoenisch, the wife of former Marathon County sheriff Randy Heonisch. She was involved in a pushing and shoving incident July 16th in the Town of Berlin. The incident involved a family member, and happened at a relative's home. She was charged with battery and disorderly conduct and was taken to the Marathon County jail. She has since been released on bond.
She's awaiting sentencing on August 12 after pleading no contest to a series of charges involving the theft of prescription drugs from inmates she was supervising as a probation officer. Prosecutors will argue for at least 18-months jail time.
Hoenisch has claimed she became addicted to pain killers because of multiple knee operations. Her husband resigned as Marathon County sheriff earlier this year after admitting that he seldom showed up for work, in part because of his wife's legal problems.
