MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A former employee with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections will serve jail time for allegedly using state money to make unauthorized purchases.

44-year-old James Hoey was sentenced to 20 days in jail and three years of probation after pleading guilty to the charge.

According to a criminal complaint, Hoey used a state-issued card to make several purchases in a one-year span, including a MacBook and other electronics.

While a final figure on how much Hoey actually spent is still up in the air, Assistant District Attorney Paul Humphrey believes the amount is in the $29,000 range.
