NORTH LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Marvie Hill, the man accused of abusing at least two of his foster children, is due back in court today.

The last time Hill was in court, he had a swarm of supporters, including former foster children.

Today is expected to be no different, regardless of the heinous crimes he's accused of.

The 37-year-old was arrested over the summer, accused by at least two men of inappropriate conduct while they lived in his foster home as minors.

Hill's business partner, Eddie Woomwood, also was arrested, accused of the same crimes by another man.

Both were released because of an issue with paper work and made their first court appearance in early September.

Hill posted a $40,000 dollar bond; wormwood was released without bail.

The two ran a number of mental health group homes across the valley serving troubled youths.

According to the criminal complaints, hill and wormwood assaulted children between 2005 and 2011.

Additional complaints about hill have been made to police involving male foster children who were placed in his care.

Police said another possible victim has come forward, bringing the total to three.

North Las Vegas police say they are reopening all old cases involving similar allegations from at least a handful of different victims involving hill and wormwood.

They say at the time there was not enough sufficient evidence to prosecute. But with the new allegations they are revisiting those cases.

Hill has been stripped of his license to care for kids until the investigation is complete.
