Former Ingham County Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III is no longer allowed to practice law in Michigan by order of the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

Dunnings's law license was automatically suspended on August 2 of 2016 when he pleaded guilty to a felony charge of misconduct in office as well as a misdemeanor count of engaging the services of a prostitute.

The state's Attorney Discipline Board then started the formal process of having his license revoked.

Dunnings was arrested in March of 2016 following an investigation by the Ingham County Sheriff's Office. He was charged with 15 crimes including a felony count of pandering that could have gotten him 20 years in prison.

He eventually pleaded guilty to 2 charges and was sentenced to a year in jail. He's serving his time in Clinton County and is eligible to be released on September 24.
