    Just caught part of the episode. Did you get a chance to discuss Hovind’s acquittal? I thought it was interesting that despite all the wacky sovereigntist pleadings filed on his behalf, ultimately it was his court-appointed lawyer making boring lawyer-style arguments that got him acquitted. (Of the contempt charge, he’s still guilty on the underlying structuring, etc. charges.)

    This is the first I’d heard that Hovind had been acquitted. Did the court specify why he was acquitted?

      It only happened today, or maybe yesterday. He was acquitted of the contempt of court charges. Basically he was convicted of filing a lis pendens in violation of a court order. His attorney filed a post-conviction motion arguing that the jury’s verdict was legally unsound, because the court order didn’t specifically prohibit filing a lis pendens. I think the government responded to the motion but didn’t persuade the court that the original order was sufficiently specific, or that it was possible for Hovind to be in contempt of court if he didn’t violate specific terms of the order. So the court vacated the convictions and acquitted him on those charges.

      (My understanding is based on just a very quick read of the decision and this article.)

      Not sure what happens next. He still has some time to serve on the original convictions, maybe a few months? So he could be out relatively soon. On the other hand, the government dismissed some counts in this most recent case “without prejudice,” meaning they can refile the charges. Maybe they’ll decide to do so in light of the acquittal, or maybe they’ll decide they’ve spent enough time on him and move on to more important cases. I think the government can also appeal the judge’s order; they’re probably looking hard at the relevant cases to get a sense for whether or not that move would make sense.

    It’d be great if Kent Hovind would get sprung soon. I’d like to see him resume his road ministry wherein he did the circuit of college campuses to debate evolution. Hovind used to have an open invitation for any college professor in the US to publicly debate the evolution topic.

    Hovind would travel to the professors’ campuses, debate them before the student body, and consistently win. Recordings are available on the internet. Those who’ve bought the pseudoscientific Darwinism theory – destined for the dustbin of history in the not-too-distant future, no doubt – should have a listen to these debates and demand a refund.

    Perhaps his resent bad experiences will cause Kent to broaden his mission to include debunking tours against the heavily promoted – and tragically unfounded – word-magic “legal theory” counterculture as well. Now there’s another Augean stable that needs cleaning.

    Go get ’em, Kent!
