Private Testifies in Fort Hood Prostitution Case

A female private has accused a sexual assault prevention officer at Fort Hood of recruiting her to join a prostitution ring.

A hearing is underway Tuesday to determine whether Sgt. 1st Class Gregory McQueen will face a military court-martial on more than 21 criminal charges that include pandering, adultery and sexual assault.

The Killeen Daily Herald reports the private was granted immunity in exchange for her testimony.

Fort Hood spokesman Tyler Broadway says the woman's name was withheld by the Central Texas army base "to protect the victim."

Another Fort Hood soldier has already been demoted and reprimanded in the case for conspiring to patronize a prostitute and solicitation to commit adultery.

The private testified Tuesday that McQueen arranged for her to have sex with that soldier for $100.
