Army sexual misconduct riles Congress

WASHINGTON — Lawmakers say they’re outraged that for the second time this month a member of the armed forces assigned to help prevent sexual assaults in the military is under investigation for alleged sexual misconduct.

In the latest case, an Army sergeant first class at Fort Hood, Texas, is facing allegations involving three women, including that he may have arranged for one of them to have sex for money, according to a defense official. The official said it was not yet clear if the sergeant, who has not been named, forced the woman into what may have been prostitution.
