01/19/2007 - A very special day

Why is today a special day, you ask? Why, it's Kent Hovind Sentencing Day!!!!

Place your bets, folks. What kind of sentence do you think he'll get?

As for myself, I couldn't even begin to speculate, but my guess is that it won't be nearly as harsh as some may suspect. I'm expecting some excellent courtroom theatrics on the part of Mr. Hovind, though.

"Kent Hovind, founder of

"Kent Hovind, founder of Creation Science Evangelism and Dinosaur Adventure Land in Pensacola, was found guilty of 58 counts, including failure to pay $845,000 in employee-related taxes. He faces a maximum of 288 years in prison ..."

I'm no expert, but I'm going to try and sound smart ... here goes:

Kent Hovind will get 4 to 10 years - 58 counts of with a minimum of 4 years for each count to be served concurrently.  He'll also have to pay the $845,000 plus the court fees.  [And we all know what will happen to him in prison ...]

How does that sound?

Yikes, I didn't realize that

Yikes, I didn't realize that each count was a minimum of 4 years. That means no matter what he get's life.  Of course the $1,000,000 fine will be a nice cherry on top Eye-wink

Unfortunately, no, he won't

Unfortunately, no, he won't be there for life, since the sentences are served concurrently, in other words, at the same time.  Which means he will only be there for 4 years (or whatever happens to be the longest sentence).

If he's serving them

If he's serving them concurrently, then how does he face a max of 288 years?  Surely there isn't a single sentence of 288 years in there.

 Concurrently means at the same time.  If it was consecutively, then it would be 288 years, but since they are being served at the same time, he only stays in for the longest sentence.

Right, I understand now the

Right, I understand now the difference between concurently and consecutively.

If he is serving them concurently, then how does he face up to 288 years?

Anyway, does anyone know when/how to find the outcome?

Too bad they're not

Too bad they're not consecutive, otherwise he could be in jail for 1/20the the age of (his) entire universe.
