GAINESVILLE, Georgia -- The Atlanta man convicted in a jet ski crash that killed the stepson of R&B singer Usher has been ordered to serve four years in prison.

Jeffrey Hubbard was sentenced Wednesday in the death of 11-year-old Kile Glover. Hubbard was riding on the jet ski that hit the boy and another child in an inner tube on Lake Lanier northeast of Atlanta in summer 2012.

Glover died days after the crash.

Hubbard was convicted last month of homicide by vessel, serious injury by vessel, reckless operation of a vessel, unlawful operation of a personal watercraft and a boat traffic violation.

During his trial, Hubbard's attorney argued the crash was a tragic accident and that recklessness didn't factor into Glover's death.
