MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - Police say they are planning to file six more child sex charges on suspected child abuser Louis "Skip" Reville of Mount Pleasant.

Lt. Michael Fowler with the Hanahan Police Department said Thursday that the decision was made after meeting with the solicitor.

ReVille is currently locked up at the Charleston County Jail after being charged with three counts of criminal sexual misconduct with a minor and five counts of committing a lewd act on a minor.

Solicitor Scarlett Wilson says that several law enforcement agencies met with her on Thursday to discuss the ReVille case, specifically where the investigation is heading and what kind of possible charges may be forthcoming.

Lt. Fowler said he does not know when the six new charges will be officially filed.

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

ReVille's work history shows that he has held several jobs working with children, including a camp counselor, tennis coach and principal.

An attorney representing more than one of the teenage victims says that the allegations in the case are "the worst form of criminal conduct." Attorneys Mullins McLeod and Mark Tanenbaum released a statement Wednesday stating that they were representing some of the victims in connection to the ongoing criminal investigation of Larry "Skip" ReVille.

Investigators say that the former Mount Pleasant principal and coach confessed to charges he sexually molested teen boys, aged 13 to 15.
