Downstate prosecutor arrested on prostitution charges

LANSING — A downstate prosecutor is facing several criminal charges relating to prostitution.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette announced today that fifteen charges were filed against Ingham County Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III. Among those is one count of prostitution or pandering — a 20 year felony. A federal investigation into a Michigan-based human trafficking ring eventually led law enforcement to look into Dunnings.

Schuette’s office says this resulted in evidence that Dunnings allegedly engaged in prostitution hundreds of times over a five year period. His brother, Lansing attorney Steven Dunnings, was also charged as a result of the investigation.
