HANAHAN — Police say they now plan to charge admitted molester Louis “Skip” ReVille in connection with five incidents in their town, one less than initially reported.
Lt. Michael Fowler cautioned that the case is a moving target, and the number of victims and charges could grow as the investigation proceeds. Police have no immediate timetable for filing the counts, he said, as the charges will most likely come from direct indictments.
Exactly how many victims have been attributed to ReVille remains unclear. Mount Pleasant police have charged him with sexually abusing five boys whom he coached. The five charges in Hanahan will likely involve some of those same boys, Fowler said. But neither he nor Mount Pleasant police could put a firm number on that this morning.
Hanahan police initially said they anticipated six counts against ReVille. They dialed back that figure to four in recent days after detectives determined one incident didn’t involve criminal conduct and detectives were unable to locate an alleged victim in another incident, Fowler said. On Monday, however, the count rose again after police were informed of yet another youth who was reportedly abused by ReVille, he said.
The State Law Enforcement Division, Charleston police and North Charleston police are also involved in investigating the well-traveled coach, teacher, trainer and Bible study leader. ReVille remains behind bars at the Charleston County jail with bail set at more than $1 million.
