Family considering lawsuit against school that employed ReVille

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The family of one of Louis "Skip" ReVille's accusers is considering a civil lawsuit against Pinewood Prep school.

ReVille, who's confessed to sexual abusing up to a dozen school aged boys, worked as a teacher and coach at Pinewood Prep.

The victim's family and their attorneys have begun their own investigation they say in order to hold any person or institution accountable for allowing ReVille to hurt more children.

"That ReVille hurt so many children is a tragedy.  Institutions and their leaders that ignored or covered up these alleged crimes allowed ReVille to hurt more children," said Joe Rice who is a lawyer for one of ReVille's victims." We encourage anyone with information to come forward soon so that any person or institution that enabled ReVille can be held accountable."

ReVille is facing charges in Mt. Pleasant and Hanahan. Summerville police also are investigating the former coach and assistant school principal.

ReVille is being held in the Charleston County Detention Center on more than $1 million bond.
