Former coach gets 50 years in abuse case

A former South Carolina teacher and coach has been sentenced to 50 years after pleading guilty to nearly two dozen child sex charges.

Louis ReVille entered the plea in Charleston Wednesday, saying he is sorry and is the only one responsible for his actions.

He received 50 years on the most serious charge, first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor. On the other counts, Circuit Judge Markley Dennis gave ReVille sentences ranging from 10 to 20 years, with the terms to run at the same time.

ReVille worked at schools, camps, churches and recreation programs in the area during the past decade and was arrested in October.

In court, one of his victims said he ended up on drugs and attempted suicide. He called ReVille a demon who rapes angels.
