State Representative Larry Inman (R-Williamsburg) will seek treatment for long-term use of pain medications.

Inman has taken prescribed pain medication to deal with a variety of surgeries.

Inman's Attorney Chris Cooke says he will consult with his doctors, but Inman currently has no plans to resign from his post.

"He still wants to do his job, but we also primarily have to listen to what his doctors say," Cooke says.

Last month, Inman was charged with extortion, soliciting a bribe, and lying to the FBI. He has plead not guilty to all charges. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison.

Speaker of the Michigan House of Representatives Lee Chatfield (R-Levering) co-sponsored a resolution Tuesday urging Inman to resign. The measure has not gone to a vote yet.
