Court hearing concludes for Fort Hood soldier accused of prostitution ring

Posted:
FORT HOOD - The fate of a Fort Hood soldier accused of organizing a prostitution ring in now in the hands of an investigating officer as the Article 32 for Sgt. 1st Class Gregory McQueen ended Wednesday afternoon.

The prosecution wrapped up the day by calling their final few witnesses to the stand, as well as one woman they questioned on Tuesday. One of the witnesses was Master Sergeant Brad Grimes, who's accused of meeting with one of the women and paying to have sex with her.

On Wednesday, Grimes told the investigating officer that McQueen set up that meeting by giving him a phone number. During his testimony, Grimes insisted that he did not have sex with her despite paying for a hotel room and having conversations with her by text messages. Grimes was convicted of conspiracy to patronize a prostitute in December .

The prosecution also called one of the women questioned on Tuesday, back to the stand. She was brought in to clarify a few questions the prosecution still had.
 
Afterwards, the defense had an opportunity to speak. They brought in two fellow soldiers to testify, who tried to discredit the testimony of two of the women supposedly recruited in the ring. The judge gave everyone, including McQueen a chance to give final remarks, but the defense nor McQueen gave a statement.

The prosecution did give a closing argument and said McQueen used his rank and position as a way to recruit the females into his prostitution ring.

Now that the hearing is over, the investigating officer will review the case. When he makes a decision he will then submit a recommendation to the Court Martial Convening Authority. If a Court Martial is recommended, McQueen will have the option of a judge or panel of his peers to decide his fate.
