Testimony to Resume in Fort Hood Prostitution Case
Testimony is set to resume in the case of a Fort Hood sergeant accused of operating a prostitution ring.
Noncommissioned officer Sgt. 1st Class Gregory McQueen was working as a sexual assault prevention officer with III Corps’ Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion when he allegedly recruited female soldiers for the purpose of engaging in sex for money. McQueen now faces 21 criminal charges including pandering, adultery and sexual assault. The current Article 32 hearing will determine if he will face a military court-martial.
According to testimony delivered Tuesday by a female private, McQueen offered to help her overcome financial difficulties by working as an escort for high-ranking noncommissioned officers and civilians. She accused McQueen of taking lewd photographs of and engaging in sexual activity with her, asking her to “act out” what she would do with clients.
That witness also testified against Master Sgt. Brad Grimes, who has already been found guilty of conspiring to patronize a prostitute and solicitation to commit adultery. According to the witness, McQueen arranged for her and Grimes to have sex for $100.
Other witnesses expected to testify include a female private who accuses McQueen of sexually assaulting her and trying to recruit her into prostitution.
