CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Charleston police are investigating another allegation of inappropriate sexual conduct at The Citadel's former summer camp.
Citadel attorney Dawes Cook said Tuesday the school was notified last week by a lawyer whose client attended the camp in the 1980s. Cook says the school turned the allegation over to police earlier this week.
Police already are investigating allegations of sexual misconduct at the camp, which the school has discontinued.
Cook did not provide details on the allegation but says the school is cooperating with police.
The school has been criticized for its handling of a 2007 complaint involving a counselor, Louis ReVille. The school investigated but did not notify police.
ReVille is charged with molesting nine youngsters when a teacher and coach in Charleston area schools, recreation programs and churches.
