The Prosecutor Gets Prosecuted

Long-serving Ingham County Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III is expected to get arraigned in the next few days on sex charges brought by the Michigan Attorney General. Stunned is the only word for us over here at the Law Blogger.

The prosecutor is facing 15 separate charges spread across three counties. The charges are a mix of misdemeanors and at least one felony.

Dunnings' troubles surfaced in the course of a federal prosecution for sex trafficking. The soon-to-be-sentenced leader of a sex ring that serviced Lansing, Chicago and Atlanta obviously gave-up some names.

Human trafficking has been a priority issue for Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette. In addition, this is the type of prosecution that only the AG's office is equipped to handle.

At this stage of the proceedings, it is too early to determine whether Dunnings will plead and, if convicted, the likely sentence. We will keep you posted.
