FORT HOOD (AP) - A Fort Hood sergeant convicted for his role in a prostitution ring involving cash-strapped female soldiers has been reprimanded and demoted.

A military jury late Tuesday convicted Master Sgt. Brad Grimes of conspiring to patronize a prostitute and solicitation to commit adultery. The 17-year Army veteran was then demoted one pay grade and reprimanded during the court-martial at the Central Texas post.

Grimes, who is married, was acquitted of patronizing a prostitute and committing adultery.

Defense attorney Daniel Conway told jurors that the explosive ordnance disposal specialist was “tempted” but that no money exchanged hands and no sex happened.

Another soldier involved in Fort Hood’s sexual assault and harassment program has been suspended amid the investigation.
