A Ford Hood, Texas Army officer named Gregory McQueen who worked as the coordinator of a sexual harassment and assault prevention program is accused of "setting up a prostitution ring with cash-strapped female soldiers," CBS affiliate KWTX reports.

Initial charges were filed in March against McQueen, who was under investigation for “abusive sexual contact” and other alleged misconduct.
He’s accused of setting up a prostitution ring involving female soldiers in need of cash.
The filing alleges 21 specifications of charges related to pandering, conspiracy, maltreatment of a subordinate, abusive sexual contact, adultery and conduct of a nature to bring discredit to the armed forces, Fort Hood said.

The allegations involve three women, the station says.
