Ex-head of Jefferson Co. drug task force convicted of misconduct

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A former head of the Jefferson County drug task force has been convicted of stealing over $10,000 that was supposed to be used for buying evidence.

The state Justice Department said Monday that 56-year-old Timothy Madson was found guilty of misconduct in public office.

Madson is a former Jefferson County sheriff's detective who supervised the county's drug task force from 2003 through most of 2011.

A criminal complaint said Madson made false claims for thousands of dollars from a fund he controlled to cover drug buys in undercover operations -- plus other task force expenses.

He's due to be sentenced October 1st.
