FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Testimony continues in the court-martial of a Fort Hood soldier accused of using a prostitution service involving senior noncommissioned officers and cash-strapped female soldiers.

Testimony continues Tuesday in the Fort Hood military trial of Master Sgt. Brad Grimes, a 17-year Army veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Trial opened Monday.

Army prosecutors accuse Grimes of participating in a prostitution ring set up by another Fort Hood sergeant still under Army investigation.

The case arose from an investigation of a lower-level coordinator of Fort Hood’s sexual assault and harassment prevention program. The Army said a noncommissioned officer involved in the program recruited female soldiers for the prostitution ring.

Defense attorneys contend Grimes is being court-martialed because he refused a deal to testify against the other soldier.
