Citadel admits not reporting sex abuse allegation against former youth camp counselor
November 14, 2011
While working as a youth camp counselor at The Citadel, accused molester Louis “Skip” ReVille reportedly watched pornography and behaved inappropriately with two boys under his care, school officials said Saturday.
When ReVille was charged in recent weeks with sexually assaulting teenage boys in other incidents, The Citadel revealed that a summer camper once had accused ReVille of inappropriate behavior. But school officials refused to provide specifics.
A written statement, issued Saturday by Citadel president John Rosa and Doug Snyder, chairman of the school’s board of visitors, is the first time the Citadel details have been publicly aired.
One of the campers reported the incident to school officials in 2007, five years after it was said to have happened in 2002, the year ReVille graduated from the school. The camper said the incident occurred in ReVille’s room at the camp and that they watched porn on his computer. They did not touch each other but did masturbate, school officials said.
