GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A Hall County jury has found a man guilty in a jet skiing accident on Lake Lanier that killed an 11-year-old boy and left a second child severely injured.
Jeffrey Hubbard was convicted Thursday of homicide by vessel in the summer 2012 crash that killed 11-year-old Kile Glover, the stepson of R&B singer Usher.
Hubbard was also found guilty of serious injury by vessel, reckless operation of a vessel, unlawful operation of a personal watercraft and a boat traffic violation.
Investigators have said the jet ski Hubbard was riding hit the boys as they were being towed on an inner tube. Glover died of head injuries six days after the crash.
Hubbard's attorneys argued that the incident was a tragic accident and wasn't linked to recklessness.
