TAMPA, Fla. -

The mother of a 12-year-old Central Florida girl who jumped to her death after being bullied for months is exploring her legal options.

Attorneys said Thursday that they've taken no legal action yet on behalf of Rebecca Sedwick's mother. But they haven't ruled out suing Polk County schools or the parents of two girls who were arrested in connection with Sedwick's death.

Among the attorneys representing the mother, Tricia Norman, is former Gov. Charlie Crist.

Norman's attorneys say they plan to establish a website to help her raise money to pay for funeral costs. Any additional funds will be used for anti-bullying causes.

Two of Sedwick's schoolmates, who deputies say were primarily responsible for the bullying, were arrested last week. They were charged with stalking.
