Stuart Dunnings III, a former Ingham County prosecutor who was charged with 15 counts of prostitution-related offenses, was released from jail last night according to media reports.

According to the Lansing State Journal, Dunnings was released in the early morning Sunday after serving 10 months of a 12-month sentence in jail. As part of a three-year probation sentence, Dunnings was required to serve the first year in prison. Dunnings was released early on good behavior.

Dunnings was sentenced in November 2016 for felony misconduct in office and misdemeanor of engaging in the services of a prostitute charges. 

Ingham County officials found Dunnings solicited five prostitutes during his tenure and forced a sixth woman to allow him to pay for sex with her, according to LSJ. He was later prosecuted by the Michigan Attorney General’s Office.
