Citadel trying to follow abuse report advice

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Officials at The Citadel say they are working to follow experts' recommendations following a sex abuse scandal that involved a former camp counselor.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports that leaders at the military college said Friday they are working on better ways to protect children on campus and deal with sexual assault complaints.

The college's Board of Visitors hired two outside firms last year to investigate a 2007 complaint from a former camper about Louis "Skip" ReVille, a Citadel graduate and former teacher who worked at schools, camps, churches and recreation programs in the Charleston area.

ReVille was sentenced last year after pleading guilty to 22 abuse counts. While the college did its own investigation, police were never contacted.
