“If a kid asks for help from a friend, you don’t want that kid to say ‘I’m sorry I can’t help you. I might end up in trouble at school,’” said attorney Wendy Murphy, who is trying to help the Cox family get the school’s decision reversed.

Meanwhile, the parents of Erin’s teammates have started a petition to support her.

“She didn’t do anything wrong. She did what she thought was right, and I’m very proud of her,” Erin’s mother said.
