Jeffrey Hubbard of Atlanta will serve four years in prison for crashing into and killing 11-year-old Kile Glover in a summer 2012 wreck on Lake Lanier.
Hubbard was found guilty last month of homicide by vessel, serious injury by vessel and misdemeanor boating charges including reckless operation of a vessel, unlawful operation of a personal watercraft and boat traffic violation for operating at more than idle speed within 100 feet of a person in the water.
He faced a mandatory minimum sentence of three years and a 23-year maximum sentence.
The July 6 wreck also injured Jordan Shepp, then 15. The two children were riding on a raft being pulled by a pontoon boat when Hubbard’s personal watercraft collided with them. Glover was the son of Ryan Glover, president of Bounce TV, and Tameka Foster; he was stepson to entertainer Usher.
