PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - The trial of Pensacola evangelist known as Doctor Dino has been pushed back to January.

Kent Hovind’s trial on charges of mail fraud and criminal contempt was set to begin Monday.

The Pensacola News Journal (https://on.pnj.com/1ylWtw ) reports that the trial was moved that that Hovind could be tried with a co-defendant.

He received a 10-year federal prison sentence in 2006 on tax evasion charges.

Hovind is known as Doctor Dino because he operated a Pensacola theme park and museum known as Dinosaur Adventure Land.

The park was created to spread Hovind’s belief that humans and dinosaurs existed at the same time and that God created Earth 6,000 years ago in just six days.
