A Georgia man was found guilty in the death of Tameka Raymond’s son, Kile Glover, resulting from a jet ski accident.
The boy was placed on life support for a few days before being declared dead by doctors in a Georgia hospital. Raymond, ex-wife of Usher Raymond, started a foundation titled “Kile’s World Foundation” which “offers comprehensive art education to children between 10-17 years of age. The foundation offers art-based camps with multiple workshops, including acting, singing, dance, painting, illustration, music production and digital media.” (Centric.com, 2013)
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.
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.
