Sherrice Iverson (7) and her older brother Harold (14) went to Primm Valley Resort Casino with their father Leroy Iverson in Primm, Nevada. Their father did not have money for a room and so he decided to just spend a few hours in the casino. Leroy sent his children to go and occupy themselves on the balcony of the casino. He had seen it done in the past and assumed that it would be okay for him as a parent to do the same. Leroy then told Harold that he would be in charge of watching his sister Sherrice while he was away. Well, Harold didn’t keep a close eye on his sister and eventually, the siblings went their separate ways. Sherrice was running around unmonitored all throughout the casino. At about 4 am in the morning a teen by the name of Jeremy Strohmeyer (19) was seen following and playing with Sherrice. He was then seen following her into the bathroom. Inside the bathroom, Jeremy continued to play with Sherrice until he finally forced Sherrice into one of the bathroom stalls. He was seen at this point by his friend David Cash (17). Cash immediately came out of the bathroom and Jeremy was seen by Cash coming out of the bathroom 20 minutes later. Jeremy then informed his friend David that he had molested Sherrice and then strangled her to keep her quiet. Jeremy stated that as he was leaving, he noticed that Sherrice was still alive and twisted her neck making a “loud pop” to crack it, then laid her head on the toilet. He was caught 3 days later after he was identified from security footage of his attack. He was charged with abducting, sexually assaulting, and killing Sherrice. He was facing the death sentence. He ended up pleading guilty to first-degree abduction, and a sexual attack on a minor with harm. He was sentenced to life in jail without a choice of parole. Due to the fact that the family could not get Cash charged as well, because of his lack of reporting the incident, they created and got the Sherrice Iverson bill passed. This bill requires that a person with reasonable suspicion that a minor is being sexually attacked must report the crime to the police or face criminal action.
