Kent Hovind trial delayed again

For the second time this week, illness has delayed the trial of Pensacola evangelist Kent Hovind and his wife, Jo Hovind.

The trial, which began last week, was scheduled to resume Monday but was delayed because Jo Hovind’s attorney, Jerry Barringer, was ill. Court officials said Tuesday morning the trial was delayed again.

The trial could resume Wednesday.

Kent Hovind, who travels the world preaching against evolution, is facing 58 federal charges of failing to pay more than $473,000 in employee-related taxes at his creationist-theme park on North Palafox Street, Dinosaur Adventure Land. Hovind and his wife are also charged with 44 counts of evading bank-reporting requirements.
