Illness delays Hovind trial

Illness delayed the tax-evasion trial of Pensacola evangelist Kent Hovind and his wife, Jo Hovind.

The trial, which began last week, was scheduled to continue Monday but was canceled when Jo Hovind's attorney, Jerry Barringer, fell ill. Depending on Barringer's condition, the trial could resume today.

Kent Hovind, owner of Dinosaur Adventure Land on North Palafox Street and founder of Creation Science Evangelism, is charged with 58 federal charges, including failing to pay $473,818 in employee-related taxes. Jo Hovind, a co-defendant, is charged, along with her husband, with 44 counts of evading bank-reporting requirements.
