    Blade going to Jail

    Judge sentences Snipes to 3 years for tax convictions
    April 24, 2008, 6:54 PM EST
    OCALA, Fla. -- A federal judge has sentenced action star Wesley Snipes to the maximum three-year sentence on tax charges.
    Prosecutors had requested three years, one year for each of Snipes' convictions of willfully failing to file a tax return.
    Snipes' lawyers offered three dozen letters from family members, friends and even fellow actors Woody Harrelson and Denzel Washington attesting to his good character. They argued he should get only probation, because all three convictions were misdemeanors and the actor had no previous criminal record.
    The sentencing lasted the entire morning without a decision. A jury found Snipes guilty in February of willfully failing to file taxes for three years, in which the government said he owed $2.7 million.
    The actor's attorneys said the government's sentencing guidelines weren't fair for tax convictions like his. They wanted him let off with no prison and no fine.

    I heard he got busted for stealing home without his American Express Card. Looks like he'll be playing in the California Penal League next year.

    Re: Blade going to Jail

    I wonder if "U.S. Marshalls" finally caught him? He tried riding the "Money Train" a little too long.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    This just in- Wesley has bought 3 batting gloves. One for each year he is going to spend in prison.

    Snipes gets the max -- 3 years -- in tax case - CNN.com

    Re: Blade going to Jail

    How do you make that much money, not file, and expect not to get caught?

    Idiot.

    Maybe he thought he had people? But maybe he had a Monty Python moment, where he sacked the people he had.

    So now the people responsible for the sacking, will likely be sacked...




    I think now I'm going to have to watch that later...


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Maybe he's been watching too much America: Freedom to Fascism...
