See Kent make his claim around the 4:10 mark in the following video.

(Begin quote.)

By the way, we applied today for release of, to get off probation, just quit.

And after a year you are allowed to apply.

OK, so pray that they grant it.

(End quote.)

I have found no evidence that Kent Hovind has “applied” for the termination of his Supervised Release, what he calls probation.

I’ve been waiting, and asking, and, as they say, “crickets”.

Kent Hovind, please give us the details as to what is up with that!

(excerpt)

The court may, after considering the factors set forth in section 3553(a)(1), (a)(2)(B), (a)(2)(C), (a)(2)(D), (a)(4), (a)(5), (a)(6), and (a)(7), terminate a term of supervised release and discharge the defendant released at any time after the expiration of one year of supervised release…if it is satisfied that such action is warranted by the conduct of the defendant and the interest of justice.

18 USC 3553 – https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/3553

Factors (excerpts):

the nature and circumstances of the offense and the history and characteristics of the defendant

to afford adequate deterrence to criminal conduct

to protect the public from further crimes of the defendant

to provide the defendant with needed educational or vocational training, medical care, or other correctional treatment in the most effective manner

the need to avoid unwarranted sentence disparities among defendants with similar records who have been found guilty of similar conduct

the need to provide restitution to any victims of the offense


UPDATE: October 2, 2016 at 7:40 PM MT

The more time that goes by without Kent or anyone else documenting Kent’s application for an early termination of his Supervised Release, the more it looks like Kent just flat out lied about having applied for it.
