MI: AG, sheriff tried to withhold Dunnings records

Ingham County Sheriff Gene Wriggelsworth and Attorney General Bill Schuette's office pushed to delay the public release of documents related to the criminal investigation of former Ingham County prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III.

The State Journal obtained those records on Thursday, following a successful appeal to the Ingham County Board of Commissioners. In more than 500 pages, the investigatory reports show Dunnings was engaged in questionable behavior — behavior which was observed by police and other public employees — for years before a formal investigation was launched last year.

The county board voted unanimously on Tuesday to release the records without delay.
