Jo Hovind Sentenced
The wife of creation 'evangelist' Kent Hovind was sentenced today in Pensacola, Florida. Her husband Kent Hovind is currently serving a 10 year sentence in South Carolina. Both convictions were based on trying to avoid tax authorities in one way or another. Kent Hovind claims he did not owe taxes because he was employed by God.
Jo Hovind was sentenced to 1 year and 1 day. That's a pretty light sentence and the judge probably took into account the fact that she was mostly controlled by an overbearing criminal husband. After listening to the tapes that Hovind made while in prison and his treatment of his wife in those calls, I feel some sympathy towards Jo Hovind. Still, if you are an accomplice in a crime, you're going to do the time.
