FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) -

A Fort Hood sergeant is in military court for the second day of a hearing on allegations he established a prostitution ring using 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.

A female private who's accused McQueen of recruiting her for prostitution returned to the stand Wednesday. She testified McQueen asked her to find another female soldier for the prostitution ring. The private was granted immunity in exchange for her testimony.

She testified as part of 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.

A hearing is underway Tuesday to determine whether Sgt. 1st Class Gregory McQueen will face a military court-martial on more than 21 criminal charges that include pandering, adultery and sexual assault.

The Killeen Daily Herald reports the private was granted immunity in exchange for her testimony.

Fort Hood spokesman Tyler Broadway said the woman's name was withheld by the Central Texas army base "to protect the victim."

Another Fort Hood soldier has already been demoted and reprimanded in the case for conspiring to patronize a prostitute and solicitation to commit adultery.

The private testified Tuesday that McQueen arranged for her to have sex with that soldier for $100.
