Hoenisch worked as a probation and parole agent with the DOC since 2001, according to the news release. Her employment was terminated December 19.
"Agent Hoenisch's behavior impacts on the public's trust in DOC to carry out our mission of public safety and offender accountability," said DOC Secretary Ed Wall. "When we learned of possible misconduct, we immediately requested that the DOJ's Division of Criminal Investigation investigate the allegations of criminal conduct. This type of behavior is contradictory to the mission and vision of DOC and will not be tolerated."
Hoenisch was looking for pain medication, according to the criminal complaint, and she admitted to taking narcotics from multiple people during her time with the Department of Corrections.
Newsline 9 has tried to contact Hoenisch for comment, but our calls have not been returned.
