Evangelist Kent Hovind´s trial postponed

The Tuesday trial of evangelist Kent Hovind and his wife, Jo, has been rescheduled for Oct. 17 in the U.S. District Court in Pensacola.

Hovind, who calls himself ‘Dr. Dino,’ operates Dinosaur Adventure Land, a Pensacola theme park on North Palafox Street dedicated to creationism.

Hovind is facing 58 federal tax charges, including evading nearly $470,000 in employee taxes.

Hovind and his wife are also accused of structuring cash transactions of $430,5000 to avoid reporting requirements.

Cash withdrawals of $10,000 or more must be reported to the Internal Revenue Service; the couple’s transactions were generally for $9,500 or $9,500, IRS officials said.
