Embattled Ingham prosecutor seeks retirement benefits

Associated Press

Lansing — A Michigan prosecutor who is resigning after being charged with hiring prostitutes hundreds of times and paying for sex with a woman who wanted help in a child-custody dispute is seeking county retirement benefits.

The Lansing State Journal reports Ingham County Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III has applied for the benefits.

County officials say they can’t calculate what Dunnings might receive because he has several options. Jennifer Mausolf, spokeswoman for the Municipal Employees’ Retirement System of Michigan, says the organization doesn’t release retirees’ personal information.

Dunnings in March submitted a letter of resignation, effective July 2. He took a paid medical leave and isn’t seeking re-election.

He’s awaiting hearings in three counties on whether cases go to trial. Neither Dunnings nor his attorneys have publicly commented since his arraignment.
