    Why was Kent Hovind put in jail?

    If Kent Hovind did what most people do in his situation then why is he in jail? Why is Kent Hovind being targeted still to this day?

    From the wikipedia page on Hovind:

    "On July 11, 2006, Hovind was indicted on 58 counts in the District Court in Northern Florida in Pensacola. The first 12 counts were willful failure to collect, account for, and pay over federal income taxes and FICA taxes, totaling $473,818 for the 12 fiscal quarters of 2001–2003."

    Hovind is in prison for violating federal law.

    The way your question is phrased makes you sound rather sympathetic toward Hovind. If you're suggesting that there's some kind of conspiracy against him and that someone indicted on 58 different counts shouldn't do any prison time whatsoever you're going to have an uphill battle.

    His most recent conviction was when he attempted to gain access to some of the assets that he had obtained illegally during his time as a fraudster:

    "On the first day of testimony, the prosecution discussed Hovind and Hansen's "dozens of filings", including several lis pendens, used to resist a court-ordered forfeiture due in part to legal advice Hovind took from his "cellmate in a New Hampshire prison camp".[169] The prosecution case included numerous emails, recorded phone calls, and court filings related to the forfeited properties"

    The man is a convicted criminal, that's why he's in jail, whether or not "most people" would do what he did or not it apparently wasn't legal.

    "If Kent Hovind did what most people do in his situation then why is he in jail?"

    What exactly was his situation? As far as I know he's in jail for tax evasion/tax related stuff. Generally when you commit a federal offense of that degree you get thrown in jail...

    Odd you should mention this now though. According to Forbes he might be released in like 3 months.

      If you know about his situation then you know he went to jail for Structuring. So you think the IRS can just jail someone or seize their assets on a whim? He did what everyone does in his situation when it comes to withdrawing their own money.

      ...how was it on a whim when you just gave the reason? And I certainly don't know anyone who purposely structures their withdrawals to avoid the IRS...prison is a rather good detterent for something so stupid.

    He is in jail for his views on evolution and the new world order. It's covered up pretty good though. Here is a non mainstream source as to what happened to him. If you do not care I hope you have your assets safe all kinds of people are getting robbed by the police and IRS these days. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AUVh_oYCwg

      Why would you ask a question and then answer it yourself? If you already believe this conspiracy theory nonsense why bother asking in the first place?
