Alika Bajo, 57, said he has been struggling with an inner rage since he was sexually abused as a 13-year-old Kamehameha Schools student in the 1970s. The alleged perpetrator was Dr. Robert Browne, a psychiatric consultant to Kamehameha who committed suicide in 1991. Bajo and 33 other plaintiffs — mostly former Kamehameha students — have sued the school, Browne’s estate and St. Francis Medical Center, where Browne was chief of psychiatry.
