Haley says she supports tougher penalties for those who harm kids

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Amid the continuing investigation into suspected child predator Louis ReVille, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley says she supports tougher penalties for those who harm children.

"I will always support anything in South Carolina that is heavy handed on child abuse, sex abuse, or anything that violates the vulnerability of any of our children," Haley said Tuesday night. "It can't be tolerated by children or adults so I will always support any measures that try to control that.

On Monday, the president of The Citadel announced an internal investigation into a 2002 case involving ReVille had been opened.

Police say ReVille already confessed to sexually assaulting five teenage boys he coached in Mount Pleasant. He is now being investigated by the Summerville and Hanahan Police Departments.
