Army prostitution ring trial at Fort Hood

Posted: Updated:

The trial continues Tuesday into a prostitution ring at a Texas army base.

Female soldiers at Fort Hood say they were recruited for a prostitution ring set up by a sergeant involved in the sexual assault and harassment program at the central Texas post.

The soldiers testified Monday at the court-martial for Master Sgt. Brad Grimes, a 17-year army veteran who's another Fort Hood soldier accused of using the prostitution service.

Army prosecutors say the prostitution ring preyed upon young, cash-strapped female soldiers at Fort Hood.

The Austin American-Statesman reports that the Fort Hood sergeant who allegedly set up the prostitution ring has not yet been charged.

Grimes' defense attorney claims his client is being court-martialed because he refused a deal to testify against another soldier. Grimes denies the charges of adultery and conspiring to pay for sex from a fort hood private.
