News update: Trial for ‘Dr. Dino’ moved to January
A Pensacola evangelist accused of attempting to block government sales of his forfeited property will stand trial in January.
Kent Hovind, known as “Doctor Dino” for his views on creation and a biblical/dinosaur-themed amusement park, originally was scheduled to face a federal jury Monday on multiple counts of fraud. His trial was rescheduled to Jan. 5 so Hovind could be tried simultaneously with his co-defendant, Paul John Hansen.
