MADISON, Wis. — Prosecutors have charged a former Department of Corrections probation agent with stealing prescription drugs.
  
The state Justice Department filed multiple charges against 41-year-old Kim Hoenisch on Friday, including felony drug possession and misconduct in office.
  
According to a criminal complaint, Hoenisch worked in the DOC's Wausau field office. DOJ agents wrote in the complaint that Hoenisch told them she stole Vicodin from probationers while they were taking urine tests during office visits this summer.
  
The agents wrote that she also told them she stole Vicodin from one of the probationer's homes in June, stole Vicodin from her cousin's house in October and stole oxycodone from a woman's house in March 2011.
  
Hoenisch's attorney, listed in online court records as Harry Hertel, didn't immediately return a message.
