Dr. Kent Hovind, imprisoned Baptist Minister and world-renowned Creation Science Evangelist, is scheduled for trial on March 2, 2015, facing new charges of alleged mail fraud. The case number is #3:14-cr-91/MCR and the court of record is the United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida Pensacola Division. This case accuses Hovind of intent to defraud the United States through a Claim of Lien Affidavit of Obligation with attachments and four Memoranda of Lis Pendens.

Dr. Hovind, age 62, is known by thousands of fans as “Dr. Dino” due to his passion for dinosaurs. He is the husband of Jo Hovind, father of three, and a grandfather. If convicted, his sentence could range from 20 to 100 years. At the news of the new charges and upcoming trial, longtime Hovind supporters have begun a campaign to enlist the help of congressmen to investigate Hovind’s case and to increase public awareness of the new charges being brought against a man who has taken a vow of poverty.

Supporters of Hovind include Rudy Davis, who urges people to “pray, watch Hovind’s videos on YouTube, get educated about the case, sign the petition, donate to and support the Free Kent Hovind movement, and write to Hovind in prison.”

In January of 2007, Hovind was sentenced to 10 years in prison for allegedly violating RICO statute and IRS employer tax laws (Case # 3:06-cr-00083-MCR-2 USA v. HOVIND et al; Court of Record in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida Pensacola Division).

In Kent's sentencing trial transcript from January 19, 2007, Kent stated "Our ministry has been demonized through the media."
