Kent Hovind and his co-conspirator Paul John Hansen met Shawn Stuller while the three of them were residents in the Santa Rosa Florida county jail.
Shawn, age 27, has gone on to become Kent’s most famous disciple and has started his own anti-government ministry with the help of Kent’s main YouTube promoters Rudy and Erin Davis (aka LoneStar1776).
Shawn is currently serving a 20 year sentence and operates his ministry from behind bars at the Blackwater State Correctional Facility in Florida; with the help of Rudy and Erin who regularly broadcast Shawn’s recorded phone calls.
The foundation of Shawn’s ministry is based on false and/or misleading claims about his criminal history and the case that resulted in him being sentenced to 20 years in prison.
With Rudy’s and Erin’s help, Shawn has developed a base of financial supporters, most of whom seem to remain veiled in secrecy.
Barbara Bryson has recently appeared as one of those supporters, yet who she is and the extent to which she is involved with Shawn Stuller and Rudy and Erin Davis is not yet know. It may be that Barbara Bryson is an unwitting victim of what may be a scam being perpetuated by Shawn Stuller and Rudy and Erin Davis in the promotion of an anti-government agenda such as Rudy and Erin Davis are known for because of their YouTube presence.
In recent broadcasts, Shawn Stuller described Barbara Bryson as his “momma bear”. Shawn has apparently been estranged from his own, biological mother and other family members and has developed a close relationship with Barbara who has now gone so far as to travel from Massachusetts to Florida to visit with Shawn and, according to Shawn, try to take care of the $63,000.00 he reportedly owes the State.
Shawn advised Barbara to visit and stay with Kent Hovind on his compound in Conecuh County, AL and she took Shawn’s advice. Barbara was featured in one of Kent’s broadcasts as indicated by the image at the top of this page.
Kent Hovind appeared to reinforce the false and/or misleading claims about Shawn’s case that might have led Barbara to believe he was worthy of her moral and financial support.
It may be that whatever was going on during the time of Barbara’s visitations may constitute a violation of Kent’s conditions of his Supervised Release.
I look forward to resolving all the mystery surrounding this important public issue.
You will notice in the references below that, since this story has begun being reported, Rudy and Erin Davis have been tampering with the evidence by removing from public view some of the videos.
