Michigan Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III will resign this summer after being charged with hiring prostitutes over hundreds of times. Dunnings has taken a medical leave of absence until then and will not run for re-election.
The 63-year-old Democratic prosecutor is accused of meeting prostitutes through websites. State Attorney General Bill Schuette says Dunnings met up with one of the woman three to four times a week over the course of five years.
Prosecutors also say Dunnings agreed to help a domestic violence victim with her child custody dispute, but only if she had sex with him. The disgraced prosecutor’s brother is also facing charges related to the case.
Subsequently, both men have pleaded not guilty.
“Stuart Dunnings, who makes $132,075 a year and qualifies to receive a pension in retirement, is accused of meeting prostitutes through websites and allegedly told some of the women he was the county prosecutor. He paid one woman for sex as many as three or four times a week over five years, while another prostitute had sex with him more than 200 times, according to the state attorney general.”
