The Feds Want More of Wesley's $$$

| Filed under: Legal MattersWesley Snipes

Paying the tax bill isn't enough!

According to a new report, Federal prosecutors also want Wesley Snipes to pay what it cost to convict him.

The gov's not effing around!

The Feds have reportedly sent a "cost of prosecution" bill to the judge in the case.

As we've mentioned previously, Snipes was sentenced to 36 months in federal prison but remains free while his case is on appeal.

His attorneys object to many of the prosecution fees the government is seeking.

Here's what appears on the 'bill':

$193,716.98 for scanning, printing and numbering documents

$21,052.19 for witnesses (prosecutors want to be reimbursed for the time and travel expenses of 13 witnesses)

$2,456.40 for transcripts (prosecutors say the daily trial transcripts were necessary for the government to be "on an equal footing" with the defense, which had ordered them).

$138.18 for making certified color copies of trial exhibits

Just pay up!

    I hate the IRS. This is why I'm a libertarian. I dont want to give money to assholes politicians like Jack Mirtha, Ted Kennedy and Nancy Pelosi that waste money either. If I were on the jury I would have found him innocent.

  16. 16

    Has it always been the law that people have to reimburse the feds the cost of onvicting them or is it just because he's a celebrity?

    Who cares about his costs. I care about my costs, as in my gas costs. When are these liberals going to allow new drilling and refineries? Why do they have to be such enviornmental assholes? Caribou first I guess.

    Geez, almost $200K for scanning, printing, and numbering. Now I see why he didn't want to pay his taxes. Fucking liberals overcharge and overspend. They have absolutely no business acumen yet alone regard for hard working Americans money.

  25. @v@ says – reply to this


    25

    That'll learn ya…and why should taxpayers be on the hook because Snipes had an 'I shouldn't have to pay taxes' moment? I don't wish to pay for his foot dragging, and neither should others have to.

    What a crock - others do not get charged for being convicted. Our judicial system is so corrupt..

    Did he have work done???? His top lip looks a LOT thinner and he looks a little lighter. I remember him in Jungle Fever, his lips were BIG..well compared to the skinny lips of that white girl. She couldn't kiss him right cause her lips were so small…..Kinda like Appollonia and Prince in Purple Rain, she couldn't kiss him right either. She couldn't get in there ya know>>>>hahahahahahahaha

    I hope he doesn't go to jail though…..NOOOOOOOOO….FREE WESLEY !!!!!! I don't want him to become a prison bitch…..He just didn't give the government money. Just make him pay plus a penalty. If he does goes, at least it would be Federal….but still I don't want him to go to jail. FREE SNIPES FREE SNIPES FREE SNIPES !!!!!!!!

    FUCK THAT! The "Income Tax" is unConstitutional and illegal.

    Don't believe me? Do you research people. IRS/gov't is only going after Wesley Snipes because he's a celebrity and want to make an example of him. IRS wants to keep raping you of your hard earned money. IRS wants you to continue to fear them and keep you ignorant to the truth…

    DO YOUR HOMEWORK:

    You people are stupid it is not defense's responsibility to pay for what it cost the government to make their case. You think about it it. In a criminal case most often a person has a court appointed lawyer. Do THOSE people have to pay the prosecutor's fees? NO. They are only going after him for this because he actually has the money to pay it.

    Re: maria – You really can't be that stupid. He's a crook, made millions and didn't pay his fair share. He belongs in jail, no matter what his celebrity status is or the color of his skin.

  37. 37

    Dear Mario, spoken like a true racist or idiot.

    Snipes paid his tax bill in full after his conviction. But he was sentenced to jail non the less.

    If it cost the Fed's that much to do their job then maybe they should not have gone forward w/the case. Next they will him to pay the prosecutor's fee. Are they hitting up other defendants for payment?

    This is crazy!!!!

    dumb ass! you mean typical white man!!! Look at all the "white" collar men who get away with screwing with the government.

    Re: aspen – I agree with part of what you said, but one of the most notorious 'White Collar' criminals that did go to jail and died there was Al Capone.

  41. RJII says – reply to this


    41

    if only the gov't would go after white collar criminals like they go after black collar criminals, america would be so much less corrupt.

    send him and the rest to jail, just like any criminal.

    however, middle class taxes are criminal. These taxes are used to pay for the poor and rich people's way of life and give tax breaks to the rich that make them richer and richer.

    The biggest crime is that 'fro he's rockin'. Go back to the1/4 inch, bro! Looks much better.
    Oh, and the IRS sucks. Truly, anyone who understands economics would be a fiscal conservative.

    FUCK THE "IRS"!!! FIGHT THEM TILL THE END WESLEY.
    TAKING GOOD CITIZENS LIKE YOU AND TURNING THEM INTO CRIMINALS IS MADNESS. WESLEY IS A GOOD MAN..THE IRS ARE A BUNCH OF BEAUROCRATIC, GREEDY CRIMINALS WITH NNNNOOOO REGARD FOR JUSTICE!!!!
    PLEASE GOD, FREE THIS MAN…..
    AND ONCE AGAIN 'FUCK THE TAX MAN'!!!



  44. 44

    Snipes has a good case, but I wonder why so many of well-known Democrats (I don't know Wesley's party affiliation) are always getting into trouble with the IRS. They are the one's calling for more govt programs but want everybody else to pay them. Al Sharpton is being investigated.

    Re: Maria – Honey, this has nothing to do with color. When the IRS went after Willie, was it about color? Fuck no! Only an ignorant dumbass would think that. I hate the I.R.S. with a passion and I don't wanna give my hard earned money to the government. But until the laws are changed - we are required to do it. This is why my line of work is off the books.

    I heard Snipes is a major asshole to people if he doesn't get his way. Like one of those ( DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM!!?? ). Guess the FEDS finally said HEY TRY THAT SHIT WITH US!!

  48. Prett says – reply to this


    48

    Ok, well the taxes and interest he is being made to pay ARE paying for the trial. So they want him to pay twice. That is heavy handed.
    They are just using him as an example because he is famous and they know everyone is paying attention.



  49. 49

    Okay, now that is just bullshit..Rapists, and molesters get less time than tax evaders..Guess the govt cares more about money than someone doing bodily harm to another human being? Our govt. is fucked up..They didn't do this to Jim Bakker..
