NORTH LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Some foster children who were under the care of the North Las Vegas man accused of having inappropriate contact with at least two children say it can't be true.

Marvie Hill, 37, was in court Thursday on those charges. North Las Vegas police say there might be a third victim out there.

All the while, former foster children of his and friends say they believe the charges against Hill are malicious.

Renika Curry, 22, says her foster father of nine years is being attacked by allegations of child abuse.

“Personally, I just feel that its maybe to get a little of revenge or to hurt him or try to tarnish his name,” she said.

Curry, along with other foster children, came forward to speak against allegations facing Hill.

At least two men have come forward saying they were victims of inappropriate contact from hill.

“it's our understanding that all of the allegations are young males, that have since, either become adults or they are in their late teens,” said Sgt. Tim Bedwell of the North Las Vegas Police Department.

George Simpson III, 17, says he knows hill as a man who cared for him and his foster brothers and sisters.

Hill's foster children say they will be with him every step of the way.

Hill is scheduled to go through a walk-through booking on Friday. He'll be fingerprinted, booked and then released. He has already posted a $40,000 bond.

The Clark County Department of Family Services says based on the allegations, they have suspended hill's license to have foster children and have also removed all children from the home.
