Bad news for Wesley Snipes. The Blade star has been appealing a sentence on a tax evasion charge that he was found guilty of in 2008. But after every possible excuse for an appeal in the book, the judge finally threw out his latest request for a new trial and told him to more or less shut up and go to prison.
“The defendant Snipes had a fair trial,” U.S. District Judge Terrell Hodges was quoted by E! “He has had a full, fair and thorough review of his conviction and sentence by the Court of Appeal; 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.”
Snipes has been ordered to surrender himself to police to begin his three year sentence. TMZ is reporting that he is currently on his way to prison.
Good luck, Wesley! See you when you get out, though hopefully not before plans for another Blade movie are axed.
