Dunnings was arraigned in both Ingham County and Lansing District Courts this afternoon. Hearings in Clinton and Ionia Counties will come next.
Attorney General Bill Schuette says Dunnings paid at least six women for sex hundreds of times going back to 2010.
Dunnings is facing ten counts of engaging in the services of prostitution which is a misdemeanor punishable by 93 days in jail. Four counts of willful neglect of duty, which carries a potential one-year sentence.
He's also being charged with one count of pandering, which is a 20 year felony. Pandering is the legal term for trying to convince someone to become a prostitute.
Despite the seriousness of the charges the judge agreed to his attorney's request for a release on bond.
Dunning's brother Steven, who's an attorney in Lansing, is also facing prostitution charges related to this case. The attorney general's office has set up a hotline for any other victims out there.
