Marathon County sheriff to step down tomorrow

WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) Embattled Marathon County sheriff Randy Hoenisch says he’ll retire for good by tomorrow. Hoenisch submitted his retirement papers to the Marathon County clerk’s office this week. And after the governor’s office receives them, Scott Walker will announce a process for appointing a new sheriff.

Hoenisch announced a month ago that he would retire as soon as possible, so he can devote full-time to his family as his wife is about to be sentenced for stealing pain-killers. But there was a report that Hoenisch had not submitted his retirement papers three weeks after promising he would.He said he was waiting for paperwork from the State Retirement System before completing the process.

Hoenisch has been with the Marathon County sheriff’s department for four decades, and he’s been the sheriff since 2001. He announced his retirement after a report that he had spent very little time in his Wausau office this year. Hoenisch said he was out at community-and-training functions. But he admitted spending more time with his wife Kim, a former state probation-and-parole agent convicted of stealing pain-killers from some of the offenders she was supervising. She faces up to 18 months in prison when she’s sentenced on April 25th.
