"It's not true, it's not true and I can't wait to be proven, cause it's not true and it's really hurting my heart to see this," says parent Tiffany Jones.
Despite the charges, parents continued to bring their children to the academy and they stand behind the Robinsons, especially Demetria.
"We worked at a daycare together and she has took care of all 3 of my kids before and nobody has ever said anything bad about her," says Jones. "Ever.'
"I live right near her and I see her out there interacting with the children and I've never seen anything that leads me to believe that she's doing anything to harm anyone's children," says neighbor Carolyn Broyles.
Neighbors claim the couple just had a baby and had run the academy for the last 4 years. They believe someone is out to ruin the Robinsons' name.
"I don't have no idea, but it's wrong," says Jones. "That they are hurting this family like that."
Demetria Robinson faces a $150,000 bond. Rodney Robinson has a $250,000 bond. Both will head to court on October 3. The girls are now staying with relatives. We will continue to follow this investigation as it develops. You can get the latest on FOX17 NEWS at 9 this weekend and 24/7 on Fox17.com or Facebook.com/FoxNashville.

2 appellate court judges are stepping down
May 24, 2013 21:29 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
