Hovind Trial Resumes
After a week long hiatus prompted by Jo Hovind’s defense attorney claiming illness (i know i’d be sick to my stomach if i had to defend either of those two), the Hovind trial resumed yesterday.
Special IRS Agent Scott Schneider testified yesterday that the couple claimed in numerous documents that they did not have an income, and even filed for financial assistance. This is despite selling $1.8 million worth of Christian Merchandise in 2002 alone.
Schneider also testified that Hovind refused to give tax information to churches that paid him for speaking, and also made a public call for prayer to stop the IRS investigation against him.
The prosecution expects to rest its case today. I really, really can’t wait to hear the defense.
