Hovind's Appeal Denied

From Pensacola News Journal

On December 30, the U.S. Court of Appeals 11th Circuit in Atlanta upheld the tax evasion convictions of a Kent Hovind and his wife, Jo. They were charged with income tax evasion-related charges for failure to properly report income taxes and related documents from their Creation Science Evangelism Enterprises.

According to court documents, Kent appealed his convictions and sentences for failing to collect and pay employment withholding taxes, obstructing tax laws and structuring transactions to avoid reporting laws. Jo Hovind appealed her convictions and sentences for structuring transactions to avoid reporting laws. They challenged the sufficiency of the indictments and the evidence against them; the calculation of loss and the imposition of restitution; and the order of forfeiture of assets.

The document is available online.
