60-year-old James Bascon is the 13th victim to surface and sue Guam's Catholic church. The Inarajan man alleges he was around 12 or 13 years old when he fell victim to Father Louis Brouillard. According to court filings, Bascon was an altar boy at San Isidro Catholic Church and a Boy Scout when the priest repeatedly sexually molested him.

Court papers also describe swimming trips with Father Brouillard, who would swim completely naked and instruct the boys to do the same before he molested them.

Father Broiullard, who now lives in Minnesota, has been accused of being a pedophile priest by former altar boys Norman J.D. Aguon, Leo Tudela, Bruce Diaz, Vicente Perez, Vicente San Nicolas and Anthony Vegafria.

Former altar boys that have accused Archbishop Anthony Apuron of sexual molestation are Walter Denton, Roland Sondia, Roy Quintanilla, and the Estate of Joseph "Sonny" Quinata. And former altar boy Paul Joseph Borja alleges he was abused by now-deceased priest of the Chalan Pago church Father Antonio Cruz.

Apuron denies all the allegations and is undergoing a canonical trial. While Father Brouillard confessed on video of sexually abusing boys while he was a priest and scoutmaster on Guam between the 1940's through the 1970's.

Also filing suit is Robert Aguon Perez, who alleges he was raped by Father David Anderson of St. Jude Catholic Church in Sinajana.
