Free Blade!!!! Gets Maximum 3 Year Prison Term

Wesley Snipes was locked up today for a tax evasion conviction:

A judge has just sentenced Wesley Snipes to three years in prison for tax evasion. Forget black — always bet on the U.S. government!

Snipes was not forced to surrender immediately. Instead, the judge ruled he could surrender at a later date, closer to his New Jersey home. Nathan J. Hochman, Assistant Attorney General of the Justice Department’s Tax Division, said, “Snipes’ long prison sentence should send a loud and crystal clear message to all tax defiers that if they engage in similar tax defier conduct, they face joining him and his co-defendants … as inmates in prison.”

Denzel wrote a letter to the judge on Wesley’s behalf but he still got the maximum possible sentence. You know the judge got mad at a brotha making 30X more than him. Click here to read why Snipes thinks racism is involved in the case.

His sentence sounds excessive to us, discuss…

    Oh so Wesley wants to cite racism right, isn’t this the same guy who doesn’t date black women because they don’t know how to act? Yeah I really dont care what they do with him.

  • Serafina

    I hope they have an Asian man behind bars with him, that way he can feel more than comfortable.

    Usually the IRS don’t play when it comes to tax evasion, but I’ve seen cases far worse than his where they let the person get a more lenient sentence in favor of paying the money back.

    However, all judges are different in how they senstence someone.

    Maybe he was harsh because he’s black and/or famous. Maybe Snipes rubbed him the wrong way with his arrogance. Or maybe he’s just tired of people trying to get over on the system.

    Whatever it is, he’ll be a hit at the jail. Doing all of those “Blade” martial arts moves while naked in the shower.

    I live 30 minutes outside of Ocala (where the sentence was handed down) and all I can say is that I SAW IT COMING. Ocala is one racist, redneck town. They are making an example of out of him because a three year sentence for this sort of “crime” is ridiculous.

    GURL you know you wrong for that! LOL 🙂 You have a lovely pic (no homo). Just paying you a compliment.

  • Mimi

    He has some nerve to be citing racism!!!

    At the end of the day, he’s a tax cheat and he deserves to go to jail. The only reason he didn’t go to jail sooner is because he is a rich celebrity, just like OJ. This has nothing to do with racism.

    Ho sit down!!!

  • Serafina

    Oh and Karen? Bend your head between your legs and lick your nasty arse. You need something strong tasting to make you wake up from your fantasy world. The one where you actually think that anyone gives a rat’s patoot about what you think.

    Now go sit in the corner and wipe your mouth.

  • Afiya

    Damn, they really locked him up huh…SMH!

  • Mimi

    Wesley, don’t drop the soap in the shower….

  • Tootsie

    wow he got three years in a federal case (not paying taxes) while T.I. gets one year with community sentence in a federal case (guns, etc) what a great judicial system we have…

  • shelli

    What is even more ridiculous is that Denzel wrote a letter on his behalf. I thought Denzel was better than this. What happened to all of our upstanding black men in Hollyweird?

  • Lush_Us Lipps

    @ Knocked Up – I totally agree!

  • cns

    His arrogance is why he got the max.

  • Amazed

    He needs to go to jail and pay what he owes. All that money and he thought he didn’t owe taxes, that is just being dumb!

  • craig mack


    unfortunately, he is probably not going to real jail. He’s going to white collar crime “Club Med” jail.

  • Amazed

    I just read on CNN that the $5M is the fine.

    “The IRS is also seeking repayment of all taxes and interest through civil court proceedings.”

  • Amazed

    I meant to say JUST the fine. This is in settlement of the criminal case the civil case has not been resolved yet.

  • Noxema Jackson

    look at that pic he really thinks hes asian. I will never forget the dumb comments he made about black women in ebony.

  • Bird

    Shoot Wesley got away with murder. They need to call him the new OJ. The exception is that although he got acquitted of the most severe charges he got conficted on a little something something that they could slam him with. He better be grateful for that little 3 years. Who the hell does he think he is T.I.?

    Halle Berry must be smiling right about now! HAHAHAHAHAHA!
