It's Not Just Penn State -- Citadel Reveals It Too Failed to Report Child Sexual Abuse

On Saturday, The Citadel, the public military college in South Carolina, revealed that in 2007 it had investigated allegations of child sexual abuse by a former camp counselor and graduate of the institution, Louis Neal "Skip" ReVille, while ReVille was employed as a counselor at the university's summer camp. The institution then failed to report the allegations or results of its investigation to the police. ReVille was arrested last month on separate charges of abusing five young boys. The allegations made against ReVille in 2007 stemmed from incidents which occurred five years earlier, in 2002. Though it appears that the school complied with legal reporting obligations in place in South Carolina law at the time, I find myself asking, as with Penn State, even if you meet your legal obligations, aren't moral obligations supposed to kick in at some point?
