LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Officials say a criminal investigation remains open into a former Michigan prosecutor who pleaded guilty to misconduct in office in a prostitution investigation.

Stuart Dunnings III last week pleaded guilty to a felony as well as a misdemeanor, soliciting a prostitute, in a deal that dismisses 14 other charges in three counties. The 63-year-old was Ingham County’s prosecutor for nearly 20 years.

The Lansing State Journal reports (https://on.lsj.com/2aIGZvN ) the attorney general’s office continues to get tips. Dunnings’ plea agreement doesn’t rule out future charges.

The Associated Press sent an email seeking comment Thursday to Dunnings’ attorney Vincent Toussaint.

Authorities pursued Dunnings based on information first gathered during a human-trafficking investigation by the FBI. He was accused of hiring prostitutes in three counties and inducing a woman to become a prostitute.
