An Army sergeant who once served as a sexual assault prevention and response coordinator at Fort Hood is being investigated for allegations of pandering, abusive sexual contact, assault and maltreatment of subordinates.

Two anonymous Pentagon officials said Tuesday that the man who had been assigned to the III Corps is alleged to have been involved in the management of a sex trade operation which may have involved forcing a subordinate into prostitution. The two officials spoke on a condition of anonymity because no charges have been filed in the case.

News of this investigation comes just days after a similar case involving an officer in the Air Force’s sexual assault response office in Arlington, Virginia. That man – 41-year-old Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinksi - is alleged to have been inebriated when he approached a woman in a parking lot and assaulted her.
