FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — A Fort Hood sergeant is scheduled to appear in military court to answer allegations that he set up a prostitution ring with cash-strapped female soldiers.

Sgt. 1st Class Gregory McQueen is accused of pandering and several other offenses. McQueen was a low-level coordinator in Fort Hood's sexual assault and harassment program — at a time when the military's response to assault cases has been severely criticized.

McQueen will appear Tuesday at an Article 32 hearing, which in the military system is similar to a grand jury proceeding.

The hearing is expected to last two days.

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