(NECN) -  A Pennsylvania man has been charged with sexually assaulting underage youths at a Cape Cod camp decades ago.
65-year-old Richard P. Smith was arraigned Monday.
The DA says the four alleged victims attended camp good news in Sandwich, 1981 when Smith worked there.
Prosecutors began investigating abuse allegations two years ago when then-Senator Scott Brown wrote in a memoir that he had been molested at a Christian summer camp on Cape Cod in the 1970s.
Smith is being held on $10,000 bail.
