Last week, we reported five students from Flowing Wells High School had been arrested for allegedly plotting to kill a fellow classmate. 

Now, a Fundrazr page has popped up to raise money for Christopher Gibson, an 18-year-old suspect. The page appears to be run by Gibson's sister—the attribution at the top says only Anastasia Mitchell—who describes Gibson as a 4.0 student and a complete gentleman.  

From the campaign page:
Christopher has grown up in the same house, in the same neighborhood, with the same friends for almost his whole life. He’s respectful, has manners, and is a complete gentleman. My parents raised him exceptionally well and because of this he always has and always will respect and fight for the ones he loves.

As of today my brother, his two best male friends, a girlfriend and the girl who was being bullied in the first place are in custody. They are being held at a 25,000 bond and my brother is being held on a 100,000 dollar bond. They are being tried as adults for conspiracy to commit first degree murder. While threats are completely unacceptable and unforgiving we also have to think that five of the smartest students at Flowing Wells High School could lose their promising futures for trying to stand up for one another.
The page says the family cannot afford to pay for quality legal counsel. Gibson's sister ends the Fundrazr with a plea: "Please fight this fight with me as friend, a neighbor, or just as someone who believes in second chances." As of this posting, the page had raised $170 of a $20,000 goal.

The students were allegedly planning to kill another student with a knife. A student alerted school administration to the plan, and the school turned the case over to Tucson Police Department detectives. One of the suspects had a knife in his or her possession.
