Coach charged with sexual assault once worked camps at The Citadel
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- In a statement released on Wednesday, officials with The Citadel confirmed a man recently arrested in a child molestation investigation had previously worked at the school as a counselor at the former Citadel Summer Camp.
In the statement, vice president for external affairs Jeff Perez said The Citadel community has been deeply disturbed by the arrest of Louis Neal "Skip" ReVille and the charges against him.
Police say Louis "Skip" ReVille, 32, confessed to sexually assaulting three teenagers. Now, police are looking at trying to figure out how many potential victims there could be.
Perez said ReVille worked as a counselor while a student at The Citadel and for two years after he graduated in 2002. Perez said ReVille was well regarded as a cadet and a counselor.
In 2007 a former camper accused ReVille of inappropriate behavior. Perez said the case was investigated by The Citadel and the claim was not pursued by the individual who made the accusation or the family.
"We will cooperate with Mt. Pleasant Police in its investigation," Perez said.
It is currently unknown who is representing ReVille in court. Ashley Pennington with the public defender's office said Reville indicated he would be hiring private counsel.
On Wednesday afternoon it was confirmed attorney V. Craig Jones, Jr. had been hired by ReVille.
