Pineview boaters sentenced to maximum jail time in swimmer’s death
Courts » 2 men who left swimmer to die showed a “complete disregard for human life,” judge says.

The man, Vaughn Anderson, held the dying woman in his arms as he called 911. But by the time Weber County sheriff’s deputies arrived, she was dead.

Marsha Winter, a cousin of Raines, said Fujimoto shouldn’t have been swimming in the reservoir when and where she was. Winter bristled at the implication that her cousin had been on drugs at the time and said Fujimoto was "asking" to get hit by a boat.

"She was an accident waiting to happen," Winter said outside the courtroom Wednesday. "She had no business being out there. ... And the boys did ask her if she was OK. I know nobody believes it now, but she told them to leave. She was nasty and told them to leave, so they left."

Prosecutors dismissed these claims, saying the area where Fujimoto swam was not frequented by boaters because the water was so shallow.
