Kent and Jo Hovind's appeal of their convictions on tax fraud and other charges was denied. Jo Hovind's sentencing will now proceed.

Weblog post with haiku.

I have been wondering if Eric might be vulnerable.  He is on taped telephone calls planning how to hide assets.

Thoughts?

I missed that. Sure, someone planning illegal activities via prison phone calls is just asking for criminal prosecution.

The 50 or so charges stayed clear of criminal conspiracy which might reflect the attitude of the US attorney's office (or whoever investigated).  There was not much question about what was going on in those tapes that were posted as part of the sentencing hearing evidence.  They had squirrled away an RV, and some other odds and ends.

Actually the tapes were pathetic in the classic definition.  Jo Hovind was worried about what was going to happen to her and her family and their marriage- Kent was demanding that the Bible was on his side, that he was a very powerful man, and everyone had better bend to his will.

Sick sick man.

Satan is clearly everywhere.  What a sad state of affairs.

Numbers 19:9
"A man who is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer and put them in a ceremonially clean place outside the camp. They shall be kept by the Israelite community for use in the water of cleansing; it is for purification from sin."

Yes. Yes he is. He must have been working in Hovind when he decided to defraud the government and all of it's citizens.

The Hovind saga continues. Jo Hovind had appealed the money penalties. Just a few months ago, October 3, 2012, her appeal was denied. The sums involved are large.

Additions to tax
Year Deficiency Sec. 6651(a)(1) Sec. 6663(a)
1998 $111,959  $28,373         $  83,969
1999  192,763    48,191           144,572
2000  191,334    47,833           143,500
2001  153,432    38,358           115,074
2002  153,300    38,325           114,975
2003  135,442    33,860           101,581
2004  265,445    66,361           199,084
2005  297,353    74,338           223,015
2006  146,487    36,622           109,865

The second money column under Sec. 6651(a)(1) is for late filing and interest. The last column is penalties for fraud calculated as a percentage.

Ouch.

There's a chunk of the federal deficit right there.
