Jeffrey Hubbard, the man riding the jet ski that collided with and killed Usher's stepson Kile Glover in 2012, has been convicted of many charges, including homicide by vessel.
Glover, the son of Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond, was floating in an inflatable raft on Lake Lanier in Georgia on July 6, 2012 when Hubbard lost control of his watercraft and collided with the boy, 11.
Glover was brain dead and never regained consciousness. He died on July 21 of that year.
In addition to homicide via vessel, Hubbard was charged with reckless operation of a vessel, unlawful operation of a personal watercraft, boat traffic violation and serious injury by vessel. He pleaded not guilty to the charges but the jury convicted him on all counts in a matter of hours.
He will be sentenced on March 5.
