A'marii Brandenstein was only three-months-old when mom Shiloh, dropped her off to god-father Javon Groom's house on March 16th.
Shiloh just needed help for a few hours from who she thought was a family friend while she attended a funeral.
By the time she picked A'marii up -- the baby was covered in bruises.
While Grooms said the injuries were caused from A'marii head butting his glasses -- Shiloh says she did not believe him and called the police.
EPD later arrested Grooms on a charge of neglect of a dependent resulting in bodily injury, after his story did not match the child's abrasions.
Grooms bonded out on $1K just one day later.
And with him having a scheduled court hearing on Monday, May 3rd, Shiloh and nearly one dozen family members and friends thought it was the perfect time to protest outside the county courts -- demanding longer than 24-hours in jail for the man she says hurt her child.
"No baby deserves this, no child deserves this," Shiloh Bradenstein said. "I mean children should be happy, smiling -- they shouldn't worry about ever dealing with something like that from someone they trust -- that they thought loved them -- that's not OK."
But because Groom's lawyer was unable to be present at the afternoon hearing - it was rescheduled for Friday.
Amarii's mom said she and her supporters plan to be back on Friday and will stand as long as it takes.
