Wesley Snipes was convicted of tax evasion a good two years ago now, but has so far managed to successfully dodge being sent to prison. Until now!!
E! reports, “The defendant Snipes had a fair trial,” U.S. District Judge Terrell Hodges wrote in his 17-page ruling. “He has had a full, fair and thorough review of his conviction and sentence by the Court of Appeal; and he has had a full, fair and thorough review of his present claims, during all of which he has remained at liberty. “The time has come for the judgment to be enforced.” Translation: the 48-year-old actor needs to report to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons ASAP to begin his 36-month sentence.
Wesley will serve a three-year sentence for his crimes, he tried several times to appeal his conviction but clearly the attempts didn’t work.
