    FORT HOOD, Texas - The general court-martial convening authority, Lt. Gen. Sean B. MacFarland, commander, III Corps and Fort Hood, has referred the case of U.S. v. Sgt. 1st Class Gregory McQueen to a general court-martial.

    After considering all matters, including the recommendations of McQueen's chain of command, the Article 32 investigating officer and his own legal adviser, MacFarland referred the case to a general court-martial for trial.

    Now that the case has been referred to a general court-martial, a military judge will receive the case and docket it for trial.

    Initial charges were filed March 7 against McQueen and allege 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. The Article 32 in this case ended June 4.

    This release will be updated once a date of the court-martial is determined.

    As with all criminal investigations and proceedings, the accused is considered to be innocent unless or until proven guilty in a court of law.
