Sheriff remains silent on felony drug charges against wife

Hoenisch hard to track down Hoenisch hard to track down

Marathon County's top law enforcement officer remains hard to track down, after prosecutors charged his wife with burglary, misconduct in office and stealing prescription medications.

Kim Hoenisch is a former probation agent. Her husband, Marathon County Sheriff Randy Hoenisch, has remained mum since the story broke last month.

Newsline 9 reporters have repeatedly called, e-mailed and gone to the Marathon County Sheriff's Department in hopes of talking with Hoenisch. We have consistently been told he is not in the office, and e-mails and calls remain unanswered.

Newsline 9 will continue to follow up on this story in hopes of bringing you a response.

Kim Hoenisch is expected to enter a plea to the charges January 28, 2013 in Taylor County. She could face up to 20 years behind bars on the charges.
