The man who was driving the jet-ski that struck Usher's ex-wife's son, Kile Glover, was convicted of homicide for the 2012 accident that killed the boy.

Jeffrey Hubbard was found guilty on all counts by a Gainesville, Ga., court, including homicide by vessel, serious injury by vessel and other misdemeanor boating charges, including 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 Gainesville Times reports

The 11-year-old Glover was declared brain dead by doctors days after he was admitted to the hospital in critical condition. He was then taken off life support.

The boy and a friend – a 15-year-old girl who suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries – had been floating on inner tubes in Lake Lanier northeast of Atlanta, when Hubbard struck them with his jet ski.

Hubbard's attorneys argued that the incident was a tragic accident and not due to recklessness, the Times reported in a separate story. His sentencing will be March 5.

Glover's mother, Tameka Foster, 43, and Usher, 35, divorced in 2009 after two years of marriage. They have two young sons together, including Usher Raymond V, who survived a pool accident last summer.
