The DA says the four alleged victims attended camp good news in Sandwich, Mass.in 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.
