Dr. Kent Hovind, more commonly known as Dr. Dino, has been charged with 58 counts of Tax Fraud. He denies this and wanted to plead "subornation of
false muster" but later plead Not Guilty
PENSACOLA - Pensacola evangelist Kent Hovind pleaded not guilty Monday to a 58-count federal indictment after saying he did not recognize the
government's right to try him on tax-fraud charges.
Hovind, who calls himself "Dr. Dino," owns Dinosaur Adventure Land at 5800 N. Palafox St., Pensacola, a creationist theme park dedicated to
For years, he has claimed that he is employed by God and has no income or property because everything he owns belongs to God. He believes man and
dinosaurs inhabited the earth together and has offered a $250,000 reward to anyone who can offer him satisfactory proof of evolution.

OK, he doesn't have to pay taxes because he works for God. This is a defense I haven't heard before. I've heard "I killed all those people
because God told me to." but never this. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
Will the judge acknowledge such a defense? And if the judge does will this lead to more out there defenses? "I was doing an 8 Ball of Cocaine
because God told me to."?
But maybe the Government is out to get him. They closed his museum because he didn't have a permit. Dr. Hovind has also filed several lawsuits
against the IRS in the past, all thrown out. Maybe the IRS are proving once again you don't mess with the Tax Man.
Nothing? I mean, this guy is saying he doesn't have to follow the law because he believes in God! If this defense is allowed can I not pay my
Taxes? Or how about me going 90 in a school zone? It's ok, I believe in God!
Yea I strongly believe this guy is going to be locked up for life. The government really hates it when they do not get paid. I honestly do not believe
this guy even accepts what he is saying. He is full of it and was probably floating for so long on some loophole that was uncovered. Well once he is
convicted noone will ever see him again. Just pay your damn taxes.
People who use this as a defense are either crazy and need a Happy Jacket so they can hug themselves all day or are trying to pull one over on the
I hope they ask the jury selections "Do you believe in creation?" to keep any of Dr. Dino's followers/employees out of the jury. Would hate for
this guy to actually get away with this crime because someone who considers him the right hand of God was on the Jury.
I AGAIN CAN'T LOG IN!!!! WHat the Heck is going on? A week and three names. Johnny Ohm, Spades, and now this one. Why do I keep getting refused
to log in? I'm not banned, I just can't log in. And until I get 20 posts I can't U2U anyone.
