Has Chris Watts really given up? Has his family?

Cindy Watts set up a GoFundMe account on October 5th, 2018, almost a month to the day before his plea agreement. She claimed she needed $50 000 for “medical help” for her son, because of a laceration on his neck [which happened on August 13], a fractured wrist and an Anterior Cruciate Ligament [ACL]  tear on his knee.

While none of this is likely true, what is true is Cindy was trying to raise cash in hurry on behalf of her son. One day prior to posting the GoFundMe appeal, Cindy wanted Facebook to find her the best Defense Lawyer for her boy.

At the same time she declared in all caps:

WE LOVE CHRIS AND WANT TO DO EVERYTHING WE CAN FOR HIM!

53 people liked/responded to her post.

Meanwhile, the terms of the plea agreement itself seem to make provision for a change of heart.

Chris Watts has the right to appeal both his conviction and sentence within 49 days of the sentence, or seven weeks after the hearing on November 19. Assuming it concludes the same day,  January 7th, 2019 is the cut-off date.

  1. As high-profile as this case is, I’m surprised a law firm hasn’t stepped up to represent Chris on a pro bono basis. However, given all the looming interests in this case, I.e., Anadarko. LeVel, and the Colorado political establishment, perhaps that’s why they haven’t. I realize that Chris pleaded to murder, but I think there’s a lot more to this story that should be vetted through a public process such as a trial.
