An arraignment hearing was scheduled Monday morning for several monks who were arrested last week and charged with sexual assault of a child.

Five monks from the Christ of the Hills Monastery in Blanco County have been charged.

The founder of the Blanco County monastery, Alexander Green, Jr., 61, will not appear in court Monday. His lawyer was able to waive his arraignment.

Blanco County authorities say at least two victims have come forward, and they believe there could be more.
