Gov. Haley wants to make sure that abuse stops at The Citadel

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Gov. Nikki Haley wants to know why The Citadel failed to report a teenager's complaint about sexual abuse from a camp counselor there.

She says she's talked to Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa and wants to make sure something like this never happens again.

"I'm going to continue to deal with The Citadel, Gen. Rosa and deal with any institution that thinks they can ignore these issues or think about not turning it over to law enforcement," Gov. Haley said.

Her comments are in response to The Citadel apologizing for not pursuing a 2007 case of alleged sexual abuse by then summer camp counselor Louis "Skip" Reville.

Gov. Haley says it is simple, when you see abuse it must be reported.

ReVille is facing eight counts of child sex abuse in Mount Pleasant and two other agencies are investigating him.
