Hovind: Hard Time
U.S. District Judge Casey Rodgers also ordered Hovind to:
- Pay $640,000 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service.
- Pay the prosecution’s court costs of $7,078.
- Serve three years parole once he is released from prison.
At the sentencing, Hovind seemed reluctant to accept personal responsibility for his crimes saying, “If it’s just money the IRS wants, there are thousands of people out there who will help pay the money they want so I can go back out there and preach,” Hovind said.
RSR, believing the holier-than-thou who preach endlessly about personal responsibility should also practice it, is not among them.
Sentencing of Hovind’s wife, Jo Hovind, was scheduled postponed until March.
