As many of us know, Kent Hovind does not like to take responsibility for much of anything, and Glen Stoll has been one of his “go-to” guys whose counsel he reasonably, allegedly, relied upon to try and cover his criminal activities.
This page is a work in progress in that I do not presently have the latest, up to date information on Glen Stoll’s whereabouts and operations.
Here’s a link to the ORDER providing an injunction against Glen Stoll and Michael Stevens and related operations from 2005:
Here’s a link to a news account of what is behind the above injunction:
Forbes.com contributor Peter J. Reilly discussed the Hovind-Stoll connection in the following article:
Since that time it appears that Glen Stoll put together something he called the Arlington Law School, with an Internet address shown below:
There’s also a FaceBook page for him at:
Glen Stoll has been known for his association with the Embassy of Heaven organization as noted in the Wikipedia article below:
The Embassy of Heaven is a Christian-based new religious movement based in Stayton, Oregon that seeks to separate from secular government.
Its members profess to be literal citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven and reject any ties to what they refer to as “worldly governments”.
The organization issues its own identity documents (including passports and drivers licenses), business licenses, motor vehicle title certificates and license plates.
The group’s leader is Craig Douglas Fleshman, a former Oregon state computer systems analyst who goes by the name “Pastor Paul Revere.”
Another individual who has been associated with the organization in the past is GLEN STOLL, an individual who, “falsely hold[s] himself out to be a ‘lawyer’ and claims to have spent considerable time studying the tax laws” but who “is not a member of or licensed with any state or federal bar.”
And from those sites we get a couple of pictures:
Here’s a couple of more references that tie Stoll to Hansen who is tied to Hovind and Land:
Update May 18, 2020
Looks like the above referenced property in Omaha, NB was taken from Hansen and currently belongs to the City. Seems there was a house on the property that now appears to have been razed; one of Hansen’s slumlord properties.
Some pictures of the address in question in Arlington, WA:
Update November 9, 2019
It seems Glen Stoll has been indicted and is scheduled for trial early in 2020. See Quatloos coverage of the latest at:

Update May 16, 2020
Transcripts of certain proceedings in the Glen Stoll case have now become available and may be found at the following links, with links indicating the nature of the proceeding transcripted.
Glen Stoll has always played games with regards to names and addresses. However, in his criminal case it appears he has been compelled to give his legitimate residence where he lives with his wife and as shown in the Google view from 2012 indicated below. Interesting that Google appears to have captured an image of Glen at that residence.
Update May 18, 2020
Additional information on residence claimed by Glen Stoll. Note that the “taxpayer”, Family Defense League, is listed at an address the same as the Arlington Law School mentioned earlier in this article and is an address that has been used by both Glen Stoll and Paul John Hansen.
Update October 2, 2020
Glen Stoll continues to walk the streets and has asked for another delay in his criminal trial and it has been, again, rescheduled.
Update November 27, 2020
In April of 2019, Glen Stoll was appointed federal public defense counsel in the person of Noah A.F. Horst. Apparently, in preparation for trial early next year, Glen Stoll has been appointed a second federal public defender in the name of Ronald H. Hoevet.
Update December 9, 2020
Glen Stoll allowed his 5th delay!
Glen’s clients who previously pled guilty in the related case recently had their sentencing postponed until next month.
Update January 25, 2021
Glen Stoll has entered into a plea agreement and will be sentenced in April 2021. The Bradys, his clients, have obtained another continuance as to their sentencing to April 2021, after Stoll’s sentencing.

Update February 1, 2021
Peter J. Reilly publishes this article as a Forbes contributor regarding the Glen Stoll angle to the Hovind story:
The best known Glen Stoll client is Kent Hovind, Doctor Dino. Hovind became prominent in the right wing conspiracy media bubble in 2015. Nearing the end of a long prison sentence for tax related crimes which had involved Stoll-created trusts, he was being tried for activity in relation to property seized as a result of his 2006 conviction. In a phone interview with Hovind in January 2015, I asked him if his association with Glen Stoll might have been part of what created his problems.
Update April 26, 2021
Looks like Glen got off with a hand slap!
Probation & Restitution He Will Never Pay!
Update April 27, 2021
It is noted that “Document 61” is not available; only the docket entry as noted above. Maybe it will become available later.
Update April 30, 2021
Glen’s clients Karl & Laurie Brady were sentenced today, but I can’t tell what the sentences were. Other co-defendants got similar slaps on the wrist.
News Article – Probation for Both!
Oregon City couple sentenced to probation in tax evasion case
An Oregon City couple who shielded more than $3.8 million in income in a tax evasion case was sentenced Friday to three years of probation.
Karl Brady, 59, and wife Laura Brady, 60, failed to pay $1.4 million in taxes from 2008 through 2015, and must pay that amount in restitution.
Karl Brady also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the United States and conspiracy to commit bank fraud.
The plea agreement called for each of them to plead guilty or the deal was off, according to court records.
Karl Brady was one of three owners of Northwest Behavioral Healthcare Inc., a Gladstone-based residential mental health treatment center for adolescents. The trio concealed income from the center for more than a decade, between 2002 and 2015, according to court documents. Brady served as the company’s vice president of accounting.
The three owners began in 2002 to pay a promoter of an illegal tax scheme to help them hide their income from the Internal Revenue Service. They each paid the promoter about $20,000, according to court documents. Each created other companies and accounts and funneled their money into them.
Co-defendants Daniel Mahler, president and chief executive officer of the mental health care provider, and Lyndon Fischer, vice president of marketing, were sentenced to five years of home detention, allowed out only for work with no luxuries allowed.
In 2007, after the IRS contacted Mahler and Fischer about their failure to file federal income tax returns, the Bradys began using a third promoter of another illegal tax scheme. Under this third scheme, the Bradys formed a purported church, related companies and bank accounts to hide income and assets from the IRS, according to a statement of facts signed by the Brady couple and their lawyers.
Laura Brady’s defense lawyer Matthew Schindler on Friday credited the judge’s intervention in the case for pushing the prosecution to go after the man who preyed on the Bradys and others and duped them into following his scam. Schindler said he also was frustrated that the government demanded a felony conviction for his client, who he said simply “went along with her MBA husband on a scheme to engage in tax fraud.”
“The real criminal here was Glenn Stoll,” Schindler said.
Schindler claimed the prosecutors watched “this scam artist, this tax promoter, stand up and dupe religious people like the Bradys into believing that they could make a church and avoid paying taxes. That man was running around, And the government knew it for years and years and years. And frankly, if it weren’t for this court, he’d still be running around doing that.”

Lawyer for Snohomish County enters appearance!
Update October 5, 2022
Sounds to me like Glen Stoll is on the run in his federal income tax case. I report. You decide. Maybe they’ll finally “get him”. Maybe not.
Update October 14, 2022
The feds and Snohomish County work out a deal to protect the county’s interest in the property.
Update October 27, 2022
Looks more and more like Glen Stoll is on the run, evading “service”. Seems to me the feds should be moving to revoke his probation. So, we wait!
One of the motions notes that the feds have been in touch with Glen Stoll since October 20, 2022 and have been working to reach an agreement on when he might allow himself to be “served”. Maybe he will. Maybe not.
Update November 7, 2022
Glen Stoll contacts the court in the IRS case and falsely represents his position (in my opinion):

Link to Janet Spangler FaceBook page:
Janet married in 2021 and Glen Stoll was part of the wedding party!
Seems Glen Stoll may be married!
A recent post from his supposed wife’s page!
This makes it clear enough, I guess!
Update November 8, 2022
Looks like Glen Stoll “married” into a family that’s been making a living off religion for decades. I doubt the feds have the time, resources and interest to fully investigate Glen’s extensive criminal enterprise that seems to be continuing.
Following is the proof of service as to Janet Spangler. The 21-day response time has passed. Maybe something is pending. Maybe not.
Update November 9, 2022
This website purports to reflect the corporations listing Glen Stoll as a director in Washington State.
Update November 9, 2022
Interestingly, Janet Spangler just posted a new thread on her FaceBook page at the following link complaining of scammers. So, I posted a reply asking about the Glen Stoll case.
(It appears Janet deleted my above post from her thread!)
Maybe Janet Spangler will get her ANSWER filed soon. Otherwise, it looks like it’s going to be awhile before anything substantive happens. Here are the last 2 docket entries for the case.
Update November 10, 2022
Link to 2005 article about Glen Stoll criminal activities involving corporations sole and ministerial trusts:
U.S. attorneys filed a lawsuit against Glen Stoll of Edmonds and Michael Stevens of Everett, seeking a permanent injunction against the men’s asset-protection programs.
“The ‘trusts’ that defendants create for their customers are shams, devoid of economic substance,” the lawsuit states.
According to state records, 66 corporations sole are registered at the Edmonds address shared with Stoll’s Remedies at Law.
The government’s lawsuit against Stoll states that the men have created at least 89 corporations sole and at least 47 ministerial trusts.
A federal judge ordered Stoll removed from a courtroom for refusing to follow instructions in answering questions during cross-examination at a 2003 detention hearing at which Stoll was a witness.
Update November 11, 2022
Glen Stoll’s sister Janet Spangler as Eve!
I have been informed that Glen Stoll and Debbie Kroeze have followed the thinking of Kent Hovind and others and are not legally married. This might also make things all the more interesting. It may also be the case that they are no longer living together.

Janet Spangler tribute to Mary Stoll (her mother), with emphasis on privacy!
(At 89 years old, Mary Stoll was still doing taxes for clients, professionally, so says Janet Spangler in the above video. One might wonder if Mary Stoll was a legitimate tax preparer or one of Glen’s brigade of tax cheats.)
