I have repeatedly claimed that Kent Hovind sent Jo Hovind to prison as assuredly as King David killed Uriah.
Anyone with even a casual familiarity with our criminal justice system and the basic facts of the Kent & Jo Hovind 2006 criminal case will, in my opinion, realize that Jo Hovind did not have to go to prison as she did.
She went to prison because Kent Hovind, her husband, refused to allow her to have independent defense counsel, to speak up for herself, and because he, Kent Hovind, refused to accept responsibility for his own decades long criminal activities in which he forced Jo to participate as a Fundamentalist Baptist Preacher’s “good wife”.
This evening, on the Forbes.com website, an article has been posted that provides an example justifying my claims regarding the Jo Hovind situation.

Mother Banned From Contact With Son, Must Block Cell Phone, After Guilty Plea in Tax Crime
By Kelly Phillips Erb, December 6, 2016
Authorities allege that Jaquon Mucsarney devised a scheme to defraud the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The scheme, which began in January 2011 and continued through December 2015, involved the filing of numerous false tax returns to secure bogus refunds.
To further the scheme, Jaquon sought help: one of Jaquon’s partners in crime turned out to be his mother, Schosche Mucsarney.
According to court documents, Jaquon called his mother from jail and told her just what he needed her to do in order to further his scheme…
For her part in the scheme, Schosche was charged with 6 counts of mail fraud, one count of conspiracy to defraud the government, and three counts of false claims.
In July of 2016, Schosche pleaded guilty to the conspiracy charge.
In November of 2016, Schosche learned her punishment: five years of probation and $195,902 in restitution.
Judge Marcia Krieger, who found that Schosche’s son “manipulated her into criminal behavior” did not sentence Schosche to prison or home detention, noting that Schosche had no other criminal record.
