 Kent Hovind Off to Jail for a Few Hundred Years??

From the Pensacola News Journal:

Jury deliberations took about three hours.

A federal jury has convicted Kent Hovind and his wife, Jo, of tax fraud.

Hovind faces a maximum of 288 years in prison. His wife faces up to 225 years. Her charges include aiding and abetting her husband with 44 counts of evading bank-reporting requirements.

In closing arguments this morning, Alan Richey, Kent Hovind’s defense attorney, said the Pensacola evangelist was never notified by the IRS that he was violating a specific law by not withholding and paying employment taxes on workers at the Dinosaur Adventure Land and Creative [sic]Science Evangelism, both of which he founded and operates.

Hovind also believes that as workers of God, he and all employees of the theme park and his ministry are exempt from paying taxes.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Michelle Heldmyer said the case was not about religion but about paying taxes.

---

From 2000 to 2003, more than $1.1 million was taken from the Creation Science Evangelism accounts in the form of checks made out to “cash,” most of which were signed by Jo Hovind.

Most of the checks were made out for $9,500. The Internal Revenue Service alleges that this was a way for the Hovinds to avoid a bank-filed currency transaction report, which is mandatory for cash transactions of $10,000 or more.

On the day the IRS searched the Hovind home, Kent Hovind withdrew $70,000 from the Creation Science Evangelism account. Half in a check; the other in cash.

Does anyone know the status of Kent Hovind if he is getting out of jail?

Everyone knows Lady Justice is blind but now we know she is bigoted as well! Case in point: Dr. Kent Hovind was recently sentenced to ten years in jail. Kent argued that his ministry was tax exempt and cited the IRS code to support his case! He wrote the IRS many times asking them why he was wrong if, in fact, he was wrong. They never responded! Arrogance? Incompetence? Whatever the reason, an American citizen could not get a reply from the very people who should have been able, even eager, to help.

Hovind is currently serving a ten-year term in Federal Correctional Institution, Edgefield in Edgefield, South Carolina, for 58 tax offenses, obstructing federal agents and related charges.

 Re:

I'm pretty sure he taught people to not pay taxes. I may be wrong but I thought it a matter of time before they [irs] attacked him.

This does not sound right: someone is lying...if there is a conflict, the IRS usually will work with you to resolve this issue, unless there is a philosophical, political issue at work here. Or unless Mr. Hovind really is a crook.

 Re: "really a crook"

Ironic isn't it how easily so many Christians can so quickly jump on the government's bandwagon and defend the indefensible... Remember Waco.

We may very well be seeing just another test case of the persecutions that will be taking place in a few months... especially if we have those rise to power that are so artists at media manipulation, covert murders, smoke screens and hatred covered over with flattery and hyposcrisy...

What a day we are in, in this country. For those who are not familiar with the messages of this man in question, please do not be so quick to judge without first hearing "why" he and anyone else so bold as to question the socialization of this country will be found jailed or simply "missing" shortly.

Can you tell me the "why" you are talking about?

 Re: "why"

Quote:Can you tell me the "why" you are talking about?

If you listen to his message SID16515, SID16516 and his stand against the "forced" teaching of evolution, the comparison of the losses of liberty in this country to Nazism, Communism, and the New World Order movement... plus his bold stand regarding taxes, gun control, etc. it is very easy to see "why" he would make enemies...
I am not saying that I agree with all that he has to say... on the other hand, this is a demonstration of the sort of persecutions we can expect in the very near future for those who are unafraid to associate what is going on in government with the mastermind behind it all: Satan.
