A Georgia man was convicted of homicide by vessel on Thursday (Feb. 20) for the death of Tameka Raymond's son Kile Glover in a tragic jet ski accident.
According to The Gainesville Times, Jeffrey Hubbard was found guilty on all charges which also include serious injury by vessel, reckless operation of a vessel, unlawful operation of a personal watercraft and a boat-traffic violation for operating at more than idle speed within 100 feet of a person in the water.
The incident occurred in July 2012 on Lake Lanier where 11-year-old Glover and a 15-year-old girl were riding on a raft being pulled by a pontoon boat when Hubbard's jet ski collided with them.
The young boy was listed in critical condition upon being admitted to a local hospital, but was declared brain dead just days later and eventually taken off life support. The girl suffered serious, yet non-life-threatening injuries.
Glover was the son of Ryan Glover, president of Bounce TV, and the former stepson of singer Usher Raymond. Following his death, Tameka founded the Kile’s World Foundation in memory of her son.
Both sides have acknowledged that the incident was not malicious or intentional.
Hubbard's sentencing will take place on March 5. He faces a mandatory minimum sentence of three years and a maximum sentence of 23 years.
