The brother of a former prosecutor in Michigan's capital who was snared in a prostitution investigation will no longer represent a publicly-funded agency in court.

The Lansing Housing Commission confirmed Monday it accepted the resignation of Steven Dunnings, of the Lansing-based Dunnings Law Firm, as its landlord-tenant attorney.

Dunnings, the brother of former Ingham County Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III, pleaded guilty Aug. 18 to engaging in the services of a prostitute. Stuart Dunnings III is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty Aug. 2 to misconduct in office and soliciting a prostitute.

The Lansing State Journal reports terms of Steven Dunnings' plea show he must pay a $600 fine plus court costs and perform 80 hours of community service. He has declined to comment about his role with the Housing Commission.
