Nearing the end of a long sentence for tax related crimes, Hovind was convicted on March 12, 2015 for contempt of court. The more recent conviction arose out of filings that might have interfered with the government's sale of property seized in relation to the earlier conviction. The jury hung on more serious fraud and conspiracy charges, which Hovind and his supporters view as a victory.
Dee Holmes has been following the case for some time. She runs a site calls Hovindology and helps Bob Baty administer Kent Hovind and Jo Hovind v USA - IRS, I asked for her reaction to the Alex Jones interview yesterday. Here is what she wrote.
