Jeffrey Hubbard Found Guilty in Death of Kile Glover


In July 2012 Tameka Raymond and Ryan Glover's 11-year son Kile was killed in a tragic accident on Lake Lanier after family friend Jeffrey Hubbard crashed his jet ski into Kile, who was riding an inner tube being pulled by a pontoon boat driven by his father.

Yesterday Jeffrey was found guilty on several counts including homicide...

From The Daily Mail
In court this week, Kile’s stepmother, Marsha Glover, cried as she told the court that Hubbard had been driving his jet ski in a reckless manner prior to the collision.
‘He was just zooming back and forth, yelling with no hands standing on the jet ski. Just really crazy and erratic,’ she said.
State investigators said they did not believe Hubbard was intoxicated at the time of the incident. Glover said she and her husband Ryan saw Hubbard racing toward their pontoon boat, which was towing their son and Shepp on an inner tube.
‘We looked up and I saw Jeff coming as if he was coming directly toward the boat. And before I knew it, there was a big cloud of water,’ Glover said.
She told the jury that seconds later, she and her husband realized the jet ski had struck the two children on the tube.
‘I screamed. My husband immediately jumped in the water. I was on the phone with 911, our kids are in the water and we need help,’ Glover said.
Jeffery Hubbard was found guilty of homicide by vessel, serious injury by vessel, reckless operation of a vessel, unlawful operation of a personal watercraft and a boat traffic violation.

Sentencing is scheduled for March 5

I have mixed feelings about jail time because it truly was an accident. And why do so many accidents happen on Lake Lanier?!?! They new to tighten up on safety in the water because there's no way a motor vehicle should've been able to tht close to swimmers.. RIP Kyle.

so when did they start putting people in jail for vehicle accidents when you were not intoxicated....smh, maybe its a black thing, and when you on a jet ski...wave runner whatever you want to call them is to drive fast, jump over shit etc. its like going to race track to race my car and hit someone side of the track...I didn't mean to it was accident I don't suppose to go to jail....everyone loses here

@1015 i
going to a race tract to drive your car is one thing, if you get there and start driving recklessly and towards the stands where ppl are sitting on PURPOSE; ITS NOT AN ACCIDENT. It appears this guy was charged and found guilty bc the other adults there are saying he was being careless/reckless which caused the accident.

This entire situation is sad; however, if these dude was riding around on the jet ski and behaving like he was not an adult, this may be a case of justice served. If he wanted to wild out on the water he should have gotten as far away from others on water as he possibly could.

People'should'have licenses to drive & operate jet skis & water crafts. They are not toys. High rates of speeds, intoxication is just like DUI in cars

9:58am acts as if they were there. Sound like the step mom said the guy was acting reckless, and apparently his attorney could not prove otherwise. Acting reckless doesn't happen by accident.

so Zimmerman can get off for killing a teen on purpose but a black man does it in a freak accident and he is guilty....ok justice system

Sad for all those involved.
RIP young man.

@ Nasir

People like to say that Zimmerman was protected by Florida's Stand-Your-Ground law and that it's a big difference, but the sista that fired a gun into the air to warn her abusive ass husband got 20 years. So yup, we know what time it is.. Whether it be on a state or federal level, the heavy hand of the law will always be angled towards us..

This is sad all around the guilt must be killing him for his reckless behavior without malice that day that caused the death of that child. I truly feel sorry for both families but time does ease pain and our god is a forgiving god. #keepthefaith

It's a shame they do not teach basic law and accounting at all high schools in the US

@10:15 Is that how you live your entire existence? Anytime something doesn't go your way is it because you're black? Always the victim, eh? Maybe it's because you're an irresponsible loser.

@Beegee, Actually, had you followed the Zimmerman trial closely, you would know that Zimmerman's lawyers DID NOT use the Stand your ground law as a defense.

Zimmerman to argue self-defense, will not seek 'stand your ground' hearing

That is all.

This fool will probably only receive probation and time served, but had that been my child, I would've killed Glover myself.
