A judge will hear arguments for a sentence reconsideration for South Carolina child predator, Louis “Skip” Reville.
According to court documents, Reville provided a written statement admitting to inappropriately touching and performing oral sex on three boys between the ages of 13 and 15-years-old. Victims continued to come forward.
The hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday, before the Honorable R. Markley Dennis, at the Charleston County Judicial Center.
Reville admitted to abusing and molesting young boys in 2012. He spent a lot of time with children throughout his professional career in South Carolina. He was a summer camp counselor at the Citadel. He was also a teacher and coach at Pinewood Preparatory School in Dorchester County.
He coached at several schools including Bishop England High School, the Mount Pleasant Recreation Department, Moultrie Middle School, Velocity Sports Performance in Mount Pleasant and Rollings Middle School of the Arts in Summerville. He was also a foster parent to four children.
In October 2011, the 32-year-old former principal at Coastal Christian Preparatory was arrested in Mount Pleasant on three initial counts of criminal sexual conduct and three counts of lewd acts with a minor.
In December 2011, the mother of a former Citadel camper filed a lawsuit alleging that when her son was a juvenile attending camp at the college, he was molested by Reville in 2002. The college received a complaint in 2007 from that same camper about Reville; the military college did an internal investigation but did not notify police at the time.
By 2012, 23 young men said Reville took advantage of them and violated their trust.
In March of 2012, Pinewood Preparatory School in Summerville revealed that it sent Reville to counseling in 2006. Reville’s teaching contract was not renewed at the school.
He faced 22 charges in Charleston County; 15 counts in Dorchester County; and 11 counts in Berkeley County.
In Dorchester County, the eight victims were between 10 and 17-years-old at the time of the incidents, which reportedly occurred between 2002 and 2008, according to 1st circuit Solicitor David Pascoe.
The hearing Wednesday relates to his case in Charleston County. He pleaded guilty in June 2012, and at that time the judge sentenced him to 50 years. Prosecutors said Revilleused games and hazing techniques to victimize the boys.
