This is Erin Cox, a 17-year-old North Andover High School senior from North Andover, Massachusetts. Her family says she was recently suspended after helping drive a drunk friend home from a party.
The school also took away the honor student's title of captain of the girl's volleyball team.
Two weeks ago, Erin went to drive a friend home from a party when the police showed up. Erin was cleared by police, who agreed that she had not been drinking alcohol.
The school said Erin was in violation of its zero-tolerance policy against alcohol and drug use. The Cox family hired attorney Wendy Murphy, hoping to reverse the school's decision.
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.'
