Sherrie, Greg Smith's girlfriend
Sherrie, Greg's longtime girlfriend and the mother of his 2-year-old daughter, Amaya, says she had no idea Greg had done anything wrong until the phone started ringing late that night.

"Nobody would tell me anything over the phone. So my stepsister called, and she was like, 'Get on the Internet.' And I'm like, 'For what?' She's like, 'Greg's on the Internet,'" Sherrie says. "And I looked at Gregory and I was like, 'Gregory, what did you do?'"

After learning the truth, Sherrie says all she could do was cry. "I started throwing up because I couldn't believe he would do something like that," she says. "I don't understand. He was trying to help us, but that wasn't the way to do it."

Sherrie says she never thought Greg was capable of such a crime, but now she takes some of the blame for what happened. "I've been paying all the bills by myself and trying to take care of me and my daughter," she says. "I partially blame myself for constantly fussing at him, telling him what he's not good for and stuff like that."
