FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) A Fort Hood sergeant who was a coordinator of the post's sexual assault and harassment prevention program faces multiple charges after he was accused of setting up a prostitution ring involving cash-strapped female soldiers.
A statement issued by Fort Hood says Sgt. 1st Class Gregory McQueen was charged Friday with 21 specifications. Those charges relate to pandering, conspiracy, maltreatment of a subordinate, abusive sexual contact, adultery and conduct of a nature to bring discredit to the armed forces.
An Article 32 hearing, the military equivalent of a civilian grand jury proceeding, is scheduled for March 20-21 at Fort Hood.
Another Fort Hood soldier was court-martialed in the case. Master Sgt. Brad Grimes was convicted in December of conspiring to patronize a prostitute and solicitation to commit adultery, reprimanded and emoted.
