Ex-principal accused of sex crimes was a foster parent

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - A former principal facing charges in five sex crimes cases involving teen boys was a licensed foster parent.

According to DSS officials, 32-year-old Louis Neal Reville was a licensed foster parent from 2004 until 2006 when he left the program. DSS says that the department received no complaints about him.

Police arrested Reville last week in connection with three sex crimes victims. Now, Reville is charged in five cases. He faces three counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor and five counts of lewd acts on a minor.

Reville has a history of working with children. Most recently, Reville worked as upper school principal at Coastal Christian Preparatory School. He has since been fired after working at the school for about a year. The victims are not affiliated with Coastal Christian Preparatory School. Reville has also worked as a camp counselor at The Citadel and a tennis coach at Bishop England High School.

"He is monster," said Mt. Pleasant Town Recreation Director Ken Ayoub. "How can you even come close to justifying or thinking that his actions are anything acceptable. They're not. He shouldn't be in society, he really shouldn't."

Officials say that on the same day he was arrested last week, Reville attended an abuse-prevention program put on by his school and the organization Darkness to Light.
