The American cardinal was sent to Guam in his role as chief judge on a Vatican tribunal that is hearing charges that Archbishop Apuron molested a number of young men. 

Cardinal Burke has revealed that his involvement in the case began last October — dismissing suggestions that he was sent to the Pacific island because of conflicts with Pope Francis.
