Hey Lindsay! Listen up! This is your future.

Wesley Snipes is being sent to jail!

The actor's appeal to serve jail time has been denied by a federal appeals court.

Snipes was found guilty in 2008 of not filing tax returns from 1999 to 2001 and failed to pay the government nearly $12 million. He was sentenced to 3 years in prison.

However, Wesley thought that his sentence was "unreasonable" and took the case to appeals court.

Unfortunately for him, the judge backed the original court ruling and shot down his claims that his sentencing was too severe.

So, looks like Wesley will be serving some hard time behind bars, but no word yet on when he is to report to jail.

Lindsay better pay attention to this before she wastes everybody's time and money on an appeal.

    Funny how someone can go to jail over something that has no law. There is no law that says you have to pay income taxes which proves if the Government wants to send you to jail, you will you go to jail whether you break a law or not. And people think the USA is a free country?? LOL!

    There's a difference between "Jail" and "Prison". Also there is a law that you have to pay your income taxes and how else will you fund your government without taxes you morons?

    REALLY! With ovecrowded jails already, California on the brink of bankruptcy, why not save jail time for the most serious criminals. Use community service, or jobs only the illegals will take for the less serious crimes. Judges hand out jail sentences like candy. I think all lawmakers, lawyers, judges should spend a week in jail just to see what it is like.

    Hey you bleeding heart liberal Obama lovers. That's what you voted for!!!More big government - more SPENDING which equals 40% of your paycheck! The first 5 months of the year EVERY year you WORK for the Government. It OWNS your ass. You don't pay that hungry mouth you go to jail. I have no sympathy for you ignorant liberals!

    Re: Naomid – What world do you live in? of course it's the law you pay your taxes. Otherwise you will end up in jail like this dude.

    f*ck all these rich celebs that "forget" or decide to not pay their taxes and seem to think that they are above the law and everyone else.

    With all of the corporate loophole thievery and funds off shore, they give this guy three years. Grab the small fish while the big ones smoke cigars and make deals. Wesley can't claim ignorance of the tax laws, no matter what an advisor told him; but he won't actually DO three years, either.

    To lorrielovesparties:

    You are quite mistaken that "judges hand out jail sentences like candy"….I was a Felony Probation Officer for 5 years and believe me…they DO NOT hand out sentences like candy…far far from it…….educate yourself darling before you go preaching about what you do not know. I had offenders on probation for rape and murder..who should have been locked up, but got off basically on technicalities or plead their cases down. Often times they would violate their probation many times over before the Judge would even think about imposing sanctions or shock time……and forget about getting their probation revoked…that practically took an act of congress…..as we have all seen with Miss Lindsay Lohan. People who don't pay their taxes need to go to prison, PERIOD. The threat of community service is just not going to motivate very many people don't you think? The threat of prison hardley motivates many now.
    Wesley Snipes deserves to go to prison for his greed and arragonce alone.

    For all the people saying you should go to prison PERIOD if you don't pay your taxes ummmm, what about our lovely Treasury Secretary that didn't pay for years until Obama nominated him and it came up. What about all the other politicians that haven't paid. Why is it they we have to follow the rules and they don't. When will everyone realize that the Government is CORRUPT, ALL OF THEM!

    It is unreasonable when you consider that there are billions of tax dollars owed by current federal employees. At least he is now qualified to be Secretary of Treasury .
