Female soldiers say they were recruited for prostitution ring
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. That sergeant has not been charged.
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. 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.
Army prosecutors say the prostitution ring preyed upon young, cash-strapped female soldiers at Fort Hood.
