Admitted child molester Louis ‘Skip’ ReVille plead guilty to all charges against him in a Charleston courtroom Wednesday morning.
A judge then sentenced him to 50 years in prison on the most serious of the 22 charges against him– first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
ReVille faced one “John Doe” in court Wednesday, while prosecutors read written statements from others who claimed he forced them into sexual situations over the past 10 years. Accusations came from boys in Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester counties, including one who was mute.
Prosecutors say the first assaults occurred while ReVille was a summer camp counselor at The Citadel. Reville is a Citadel grad and his alma mater is now dealing with resulting lawsuits. ReVille’s attorney has always said his client was fully cooperating in the probe against him.
“I am the only one to blame,” ReVille told the judge, “I am sorry for what I’ve done.”
Each of the counts could have carried a sentence of at least 10-20 years in prison.
