CHARLESTON, SC (AP/WCSC) -
The Citadel Board of Visitors is hiring two outside firms to investigate how the military school handled a complaint about a former camp counselor now serving 50 years in prison for molesting boys.
Board members met in executive session for three hours Friday with Columbia attorney Joe McCulloch, the attorney overseeing the independent investigation. The board voted to hire the firms of Manuel Daniels Burke International and Anne Franke of Wise Results LLC.
"We have laid out a very thoughtful, deliberative process and are confident this review will help us better refine what changes and actions we need to take in the future," said Douglas A. Snyder, chairman of the Board of Visitors. "The independent review team's work will result in a better understanding of what happened and our response, and help The Citadel develop and implement best practices to safeguard everyone on campus."
The investigation centers on how the college handled a 2007 complaint against Louis "Skip" ReVille, sentenced in June after pleading guilty to 22 counts of abuse.
ReVille was a Citadel camp counselor a decade ago when he allegedly showed campers pornographic videos. The college did an internal investigation of the complaint but did not notify the police.
According to officials at The Citadel, MDBI and Franke were among more than a dozen groups and individuals identified by the BOV's subject matter expert, Columbia attorney Joseph McCulloch, who will engage the team and facilitate their work.
Officials say Like McCulloch, neither MDBI nor Franke has any affiliation with The Citadel.
"The board was presented with a number of well qualified candidates with solid reputations in the field," McCulloch said. "MDBI and Ann Franke have the experience and integrity to do the job right."
The BOV has not set a deadline for the team to complete its review.
