MEDFORD, Wis. (AP) -- A fired Wisconsin probation agent accused of stealing prescription drugs has pleaded no contest.

The Wisconsin attorney general's office says Kim Hoenisch entered pleas Monday to charges of misconduct in public office, burglary, possession of narcotic drugs and possession of a drug without a prescription.

The court accepted the pleas and found Hoenisch guilty. She'll be sentenced April 25 in Marathon County.

The Wausau Daily Herald reports Hoenisch's husband, Marathon County Sheriff Randy Hoenisch, was in the courtroom for Monday's hearing.

Wisconsin prison officials fired Kim Hoenish last month, two days before she was formally charged. She was accused of stealing prescription medication from the clients she supervised.

The defense plans to ask for probation only and no prison or jail time.
