The former Rock County coroner is serving her jail sentence at home.
Karen Gilbertson was granted a request to serve the six months in jail while under house arrest. That means she has to wear an electronic ankle bracelet and abide by other conditions.
Gilbertson was sentenced to the jail time and another 18 months of probation after pleading guilty to misconduct in public office.
Court records show she admitted stealing prescription drugs that were confiscated from death scenes.
