Nashville couple pleads not guilty to rape of teen sisters

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A Nashville husband and wife accused of sexually abusing two teenage sisters on multiple occasions since 2010 pleaded not guilty to all counts against them in court on Wednesday morning.

Rodney Robinson, 44, and Demetria Robinson, 33, were arrested last week following a multi-count grand jury indictment charging them with rape, rape of a child, aggravated sexual battery, sexual battery by an authority figure and child abuse.

Police said the alleged victims, who are now 15, had been in the Robinson household for a number of years.

They were placed in the custody of a blood relative shortly after the March initiation of the investigation, which centered on an allegation of physical abuse involving one of the teens.

Police said the sexual abuse allegations are on the part of Rodney Robinson.  Demetria Robinson is alleged to have known what was taking place, but did nothing about it.

With their attorneys by their side, both suspects pleaded not guilty Wednesday morning.

The pair is scheduled to appear in court for a bond hearing on October 24.
