Testimony was to resume at the military court hearing of a Fort Hood sergeant accused of setting up a prostitution ring with cash-strapped female soldiers.

Sgt. 1st Class Gregory McQueen is facing more than 21 criminal charges filed in March that include pandering, adultery and sexual assault.

Military prosecutors were scheduled Wednesday to resume presenting witnesses at McQueen's Article 32 hearing, which in the military system is similar to a grand jury proceeding.

The hearing will determine if McQueen, who was a noncommissioned sexual-assault prevention officer, will face a military court-martial.

During the hearing's first day on Tuesday, two soldiers testified that McQueen recruited them and others to join the prostitution ring.

One female private testified McQueen arranged for her to have sex with a male soldier for $100.
