Former prosecutor Dunnings sentencing delayed

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – Former Ingham County Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III will be sentenced November 22nd.

What was expected to be his sentencing today was delayed for two weeks.

At today’s court hearing attorneys presented arguments about sentencing guidelines and the impact of the former prosecutor’s actions on one of the victims.

In August the former long-time prosecutor pleaded guilty to two charges; one felony misconduct charge and a misdemeanor charge of engaging the services of a prostitute.

In March 6 News learned state attorney general Bill Schuette charged Dunnings with 15 different counts, ranging from “pandering” to “misconduct in office.”

Many in the community were broad-sided by the charges.

Dunnings had been prosecutor for decades and even oversaw several human trafficking cases and spoke-out against that industry.

After Dunnings formally stepped down in early July Gretchen Whitmer stepped-in as the “interim” Ingham County Prosecutor.
