Wesley Snipes Finally Ran Out Of ‘I Refuse To Go To Jail’ Time, He’s Headed To The Big House Today

Wesley Snipes Tax Charges Federal Prison

We know we said that in July. But they actually have him in custody now. No more dodging the clink for Nino Brown.

TMZ reports Wesley Snipes turned himself in to federal authorities earlier this afternoon, and is on his way to a federal prison, where he’ll start a 3-year bid. Which he was sentenced to in April 2008.

For the past two years plus, Wesley Snipes has been fighting three charges of failing to file Federal income tax returns. Today, an Orlando judge shut him down by not only denying his appeal, but ordering him to turn himself in.

A federal judge today rejected movie star Wesley Snipes’ demand for a new trial and ordered the actor to surrender to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons to begin serving a 36-month prison sentence for tax-related crimes.

In a 17-page order, U.S. District Court Judge William Terrell Hodges said, “The Defendant Snipes had a fair trial; he has had a full, fair and thorough review of his conviction and sentence by the Court of Appeals; 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.”

“It is just shocking,” Snipes’ Atlanta-based lawyer Daniel Meachum said in an e-mail to the Orlando Sentinel. “Wesley is very disappointed but staying strong and positive.”

The actor’s defense team had hoped the judge would grant Snipes a new trial after receiving e-mails from two jurors who claimed that other members of the panel had concluded the actor was guilty before the trial began.

Meachum also argued that a key government witness, Kenneth Starr, provided “tainted” testimony against Snipes. Starr, a New York financial adviser with a stable of celebrity clients, pleaded guilty recently to fraud.

“We were hopeful that we had convinced Judge Hodges that the government’s witness, Ken Starr, had perjured himself and that the government knew of his criminal activities and the predetermined minds of three jurors, but we obviously fell short in accomplishing that,” Meachum said.

You better hope nobody at the jail house remembers Noxeema Jackson.

    SMH at this dummy. If he would have just went to prison back in 2008, he’d only have a few months left in his sentence. I guess he really thought he was Nino Brown.

    • joyrptr

      I was thinking the same thing. He would probably be out by now with good behavior. He did the crime (that negro knew he was supposed to pay taxes SMH!) so he should have just taken it like a man and done his time.

  • God's Angel

    Public lynching…again.

    Our society takes our black men and use them as examples for everyone. They get the harshest punishments, put on public display, just like in lynching.

    Except now the media helps to provide the platform for a larger audience to view the lynching.

    • my two cents...

      give it a rest! let the asian women whine about it!!!

      that niglet knew he was black and in america!!!

    • Temporarily out of retirement, Ladies and gentlemen the one and only "Its6amHoGetOut"

      So you actually think a U.S. citizen should be able to earn money outside the U.S. then come back here and enjoy all the freedoms, services and rights without contributing?

      Let me explain something to you freedom aint free!

  • whatisthat

    you done the crime,do the time..any other brotha or sista caught and sent for a trail is found guilty..have to follow the rules of the law..i am poor and broke and i still have to pay my taxes..you are no special than any other..

  • Temporarily out of retirement, Ladies and gentlemen the one and only "Its6amHoGetOut"

    WTF are all ya’ll talkin’ about? You know damn well if you make $38 million and you dont “even fill out” your tax form youre going to f**kin’ jail!

    This n**ga did that sh*t not one, not two, but three years straight! Did he not think he was a U.S. citizen anymore?

    Did he think the studios that paid his azz all that money weren’t gonna report it?

    If you’ve ever visited other countries then you know you live in the best country in the world, embrace this muthaf**ka!

    Wesley should have been more than happy to pay his taxes because he was able to “make” this amount in the first place!

    Love 6am

    • my two cents...

      THANK YOU! folks are quick to make an excuse for inexcusable behavior.

      he has richly earned some jail time. now let him sit in jail and think about it. with all that money he saved evading taxes, one would think he would have been able to hire an atty that would ALSO help him evade jail time. smh in utter disgust.

      WHERE are the asian women all angry about this travesty of justice?!!! do these nonblk women do anything other than SHOP?! LOL!!!!

  • TRUTH-is-TRUTH

    Y’all listen up, income taxes are illegal. If you read your tax form it states “I’m voluntarily submitting a this tax return “. This let’s you know it’s your choice. If y’all research this you’ll discover Mr Snipes is not the only person that stood up to This GANG called the IRS. Many people know about this unlawful practice of the government taking their money.

    Did y’all also know that after income taxes are collected the money goes in a personal bank account located in Europe. PLEASE MY PEOPLE, EDUCATE YOURSELF. it will floor you.

  • blake

    and i will repeat; SNIPES name is not SHEEN,GIBSON OR LAST NAME HILTON. get caught w/ coke like paris h. and blk folk that’s poss/w intent and 10yrs.
