Marquette County, WI

A former Marquette County deputy sheriff has been found guilty of stealing drugs from a locked evidence room.

Daniel Card faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $25,000 fine when he's sentenced in March.

A criminal complaint filed by special prosecutors from the state Department of Justice says Card took 59 Oxycodone tablets from the sheriff's department's evidence room in May 2007. Card was found guilty of possessing the drug following a jury trial in 2009. He pleaded guilty to theft and entering the locked room during a hearing Wednesday.

Sentencing is March 23.
