LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A Lansing-area prosecutor charged with prostitution-related crimes has been given approval to travel to a Tennessee treatment center.

The Lansing State Journal says the name of the treatment center is not disclosed in court records. Nor do the records describe the treatment.

The newspaper says Stuart Dunnings III is expected to arrive Monday. The program lasts 35 days.

Dunnings, the Ingham County prosecutor, is charged with hiring prostitutes in three counties. He’s also charged with enticing a woman to become a prostitute, which is a felony.

The 63-year-old Democrat has been prosecutor in the capital area for nearly 20 years.
