Prosecutors want Snipes in Prison Immediately

10 Comments

Poor, poor Wesley Snipes. He’s having a rough a go of it lately. After the “Blade” movies his star faded quickly and fell far (though some of his direct to video work holds up, and “Brooklyn’s Finest” did have a theatrical release). Last week a Florida court up upheld the 2008 ruling that three years in prison is a completely reasonable sentence for $12,000,000 worth of tax evasion. I imagine that was a bit of a bummer.

But it gets even worse. Now TMZ is reporting that the federal government is tired of all this pussyfooting around and wants the star of “Passenger 57” and “Demolition Man” in jail, right now. Prosecutors want the judge to “immediately revoke Wesley Trent Snipes’s bail and order him to surrender.”

That news is probably pretty hard to heard. Hopefully they’ll put him in fancy pants, rich people jail, not the prison from “Oz”. But regardless, I’m willing to bet that Snipes could use a hug.

    He deserves a hug. The man is doing his time and even put up the money he owed. There is no reason for this. God I hate when the law chooses to make an example out of someone who doesn't deserve to be the example.

    Serves him right. Come on, that guy is or was fucking rich and he still felt the need to to rob the the government (and therefore every comon taxpayer) by to evade taxes for 12 Million Dollar. Hell, everyone got to pay taxes and that dick got what he deserved!

    No. There's something more personal here. Somebody's got a real hard on for Wesley and they're pulling strings to hang him. There are MANY other actors and entertainers who have “Tax Evasion” problems worse than Wesly's and you don't hear about it. This goes beyond the tax thing, this is a more personal attack at him as a person. Do the research.

    you're a fine example of what Mark Twain meant when he said, “It's better to remain silent, and be thought stupid, then to open your mouth and remove all doubt…”. Mr. Snipes made the decision to break the law by tax evasion, now he will face the consequences of his actions. No ones fault but his own. Due process of the law was followed, he was allowed to appeal his conviction at a higher court, which upheld his conviction. Bottom line is this – if you can't do the time, DON'T DO THE CRIME! Simple really. Hopefully like Robert Downy, Jr. he will emerge from this downfall and achive the level of success of which he may be capable. Until then, Wesley, don't drop the soap in the shower!
