The man charged in connection with the boating deaths of two Gwinnett youths on Lake Lanier in 2012 is scheduled to be in court soon.
Motions are scheduled to be heard June 4 in Hall County Superior Court in the case of Paul Bennett of Cumming. He faces charges in connection with the June deaths of Griffin and Jake Prince of Buford.
No trial date is set, a spokesperson for the Hall County District Attorney's Office said Friday.
Bennett was indicted for homicide and boating under the influence in connection with the boating collision on June 18, 2012, that killed the youths.
The incident was part of a tragic summer on the lake that also included the watercraft-related death of Atlanta youth Kile Glover.
The fatalities prompted a new state law that includes a lower limit for Boating Under the Influence. Another portion of the law requires all motorized vessel operators born on or after Jan. 1, 1998 to complete a boater safety education course, and further mandates all youths age 13 and under wear life jackets on a moving boat.
