Wesley Snipes To Serve 3 Years For Tax Evasion Charges
Federal Panel Upholds Wesley Snipes Tax Sentence
The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta ruled that the judge properly sentenced Snipes.
Lawyers for Snipes argued that the sentence was “unreasonable” and that he should have been granted a hearing to decide whether his trial should have been held in New York instead of Florida.
Snipes was convicted by a jury in 2008 of three misdemeanor counts of willful failure to file his income tax returns and has been out on bond since then.
