NORTH LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- A North Las Vegas man accused of abusing his foster children turned himself in today at the city jail.

Marvie Hill, 37, went before a judge on Thursday and posted bond, but this morning he was fingerprinted and released on $40,000 bond.

Friends say that Hill is not worried about these accusations because -- according to them -- they are completely false.

Police say at least two men said they had inappropriate contact with Hill when they were in his foster home as children. North Las Vegas police say they share consistencies with their stories and that there may be more victims who have not come forward.

Today at the city jail, family, friends and coworkers showed up to stand up for Hill. They say he loved his job, did it well and is not the type of person who would ever take advantage of anyone -- especially a vulnerable child.

The Clark County Department of Family Services says they suspended Hill's license to have foster children and have also removed all children from the home, pending the results of this investigation.
