Kent Hovind is scheduled to be released from federal prison in August of 2015, an event I’m sure we all eagerly anticipate. Or is he? I just heard that he’s been indicted on new charges of mail fraud by a federal grand jury. I have no details other than what wikipedia says — Indictment, Oct. 21, 2014, United States v. Hovind, case no. 3:14-cr-00091-MCR, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida (Pensacola Div.). — and the completely uninformative wailing of a great many creationists.
I’m sure there are great milling hordes of people out there with more legal expertise than I’ve got, who can look this up and give us the details in plain English. It seems rather strange to suddenly go after him with new charges as he’s approaching the end of his current sentence…unless he’s been engaging in mail fraud from his prison cell.
