SAN DIEGO (AP) — A crew member of a Coast Guard vessel that collided with a pleasure boat killing an 8-year-old San Diego boy in 2009 will have a mark on her record but will not serve time in the brig.
A military court issued the reprimand Wednesday during a military court martial of officer Brittany Rasmussen after she pleaded guilty to the charge of dereliction of duty for failing to tell the driver of a 33-foot Coast Guard patrol boat that her view was blocked.
The collision during a Christmas watercraft parade in San Diego Bay killed Anthony DeWeese and injured five others.
The boy's parents say Rasmussen received a slap on the wrist for the death of their son, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Two other crew members face court martials.
