Creation 'evangelist' Kent Hovind sentenced!

Young earth creation 'evangelist' Kent Hovind and his wife Jo will be sentenced for their tax crimes this morning in Pensacola. Michael Stewart of the Pensacola nespaper writes:

A Pensacola evangelist who argued he owed no taxes because everything he owns belongs to God will be sentenced in federal court today on a tax fraud conviction.

In November, a jury found Creation Science Evangelism founder Kent Hovind guilty on 58 federal counts, including failing to pay $485,000 in employee-related taxes.

Hovind's wife, Jo Hovind, also was convicted in 44 of the counts involving bank-reporting requirements.

A federal clerk said Thursday U.S. District Judge Casey Rodgers will sentence the Hovinds at 9 a.m. today.

Kent Hovind, who has remained in custody at an undisclosed location since his conviction, faces a maximum of 288 years in prison. Jo Hovind could be sentenced to up to 225 years in prison. She has remained free pending sentencing.


Hovind has hardly been in an undisclosed location. He has been blogging from Pod 3 bunk 20 of the Escambia county jail. What's interesting about Hovind's blog is that he has no remorse for his crime. Furthermore, he writes as if he were blameless in the mess he has created. He pretends to care for the men in his pod, but then criticizes them and compares himself to a missionary. He wrote:

Sometimes, I feel like a missionary in a jungle tribe


Please Kent, get real. You are a convicted tax fraud and until/unless the case is overturned, you remain a convicted tax fraud. Stay tuned for a report on the sentence.....

Hovind and his wife Jo received a sentence of......well darn it all no news yet.

Cheers

$845,00? I'm not familiar with that notation.

Hovind infruiated me.
That he would be such a materialistic pig and jepordize his family angers me deeply. He is a witness and he sullied himself discouraged possible converts and again made us christians have to climb up the same stupid hill of seperating the acts of the man from the faith.
