(WMC-TV) – A former Boy Scout leader has been indicted, accused of molesting young boys. For the first time, an alleged victim's mother issued a warning.

Details of William Todd Brewer's indictment were made public Monday after Brewer was served on Friday. Now, we are hearing from the mother of one of the alleged victims in court documents.

When former Boy Scout leader William Todd Brewer was arrested for sexual battery last July, one mother did not want to think about what may have gone on inside Brewer's Senatobia rental home with her then 13-year-old son.

"I would tell you mothers out there, you're protective over your girls, you need to talk to your boys," she said.

To protect her son, Action News 5 agreed not to identify the woman nor her family, but we  confirmed her child is one of the alleged victims in Brewer's case. She says she learned Brewer lived with another woman, who had two children.

"My son was friends with the eldest boy and would say, 'Hey Mom, I'm going to go stay with his friend,'" she said. "I knew the mom, I'd let him, had no idea that Brewer was in the house."

Brewer stands indicted on 23 counts of sexual abuse and child pornography. We've learned there were a total of five victims in the indictment. The sheriff says none of them were in the Boy Scouts where Brewer was an executive.

"I don't think there's anything that I would ask him, I would just like to see him rot under the prison," the mother said.

It has been a trying year for this woman's family. She says her son and another alleged victim are starting to open up and it's bringing them closer, but she hopes other parents will see her story and ask the tough questions if they think something is going on.

"Get to know who their friends are, what other people are staying in those houses where you're letting your kids stay," she said.

Brewer was fired from his position after his arrest. He remains in the Tate County jail on those charges with no bond.
