Kent Hovind’s supporters may have been premature in their celebrations this weekend, but tonight they really do have something to celebrate. Judge Margaret Casey Rodgers has granted Kent Hovind’s motion for a judgment of acquittal on the contempt of court charge that he was convicted of in March. Kent Hovind nearing the end of a long prison sentence for tax related crimes, including structuring, the systematic withdrawal of amounts slightly less than $10,000 to avoid currency reporting requirements, was facing new charges. They related to his efforts to interfere with the government’s sale of property seized as a result of the first conviction.
