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.
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.
