Jeffrey Simon Hubbard, 40, (pictured below), the jet-ski operator who ran over 11-year-old Kile Glover in an accident on Atlanta’s Lake Lanier on July 8, 2012, was found guilty by a Georgia jury of homicide by vessel.
According to CNN, Hubbard was found guilty of “five counts including homicide by vessel in the first degree, serious injury by vessel, reckless operation of a vessel, unlawful operation of a personal watercraft, and a boat traffic violation.”
As previously reported by NewsOne, Kile was the son of Tameka Foster Raymond and Ryan Glover, and step-son of recording artist Usher.
Following the devastating accident, Kile was on life support for almost 2 weeks before his heart stopped beating on July 21. It was initially reported that his parents had decided to take him off of life support, but according to a source speaking under condition of anonymity, Raymond, still hoping for a miracle, had no plans to make that decision.
During his funeral service, Kile was honored with a video and collection of photos entitled “A Beautiful Mind.” Included in the program was a postcard sent by him from his iPhone just before the accident:
“Hello from paradise, wishing you were here,” Kile wrote. “Our vacation is everything we have hoped for and more. We’re also excited to come home to family and friends.”

Hubbard, who also ran over a 15-year-old girl who survived the accident, will be sentenced next month.
