Wesley Snipes Is Going To Prison!

wesley snipes is going to prison

Looks like it's finally happening!

After making all kinds of desperate attempts to get out of prison time, Wesley Snipes' efforts have failed and he's been ordered to surrender and begin his three year sentence.

On Friday, Snipes had his attorneys request a new trial, but U.S. District Court Judge William Terrell Hodges rejected the motion.

Snipes was convicted in 2008 on three misdemeanor counts of "willful failure to file his income tax returns."

Guess we won't be seeing Wesley in Major League 4 or any other movies for a very long time.

Do U think Wesley deserves 3 years in prison for his crimes?

    If Lindsay doesn't have to go to jail, neither should Wesley.. or anyone for that matter.



  2. 2

    Prisoner 57…



  3. 3

    no..its ridiculous. a hefty fine yes, a longterm probation yes..but 3 years in prison because of taxfraud??? you truly live in a crazy country..
    He should have been way smarter about his tax affaires..but this is too much. I am sorry…just ridiculous.



  4. 4

    No sympathy for tax cheats.



  5. 5

    The new prison warden, Dr. Raymond Cocteau, is looking forward to welcoming Wesley and starting him on their special rehabilitation program.



  6. 6

    no if he can pay the bill, he should just get probation



  7. 7

    Poor Wes : (



  8. 8

    Have fun in Federal "pound me in the ass" prison!



  9. 9

    He's getting what he deserves!! Shoot, I say death penalty!
    Meanwhile Charlie Sheen should be crowned king of America.

    *warning:ladened with HEAVY sarcasm for those who are ill humored or just too dumb to figure that out.

    He won't do three years, get real.
    In the meantime, he could do well to study for a degree in accounting.

    I don't see the point of putting him in prison, like, other celebrities get off with driving around drunk, stealing stuff, abusing people and he gets thrown in jail for this? It achieves nothing, he's already paid the tax bill and he's already learned his lesson.

    The only think I can think of is that he's not white, which is kinda messed up.



  12. 12

    Happy to hear celebrity's making millions and not paying taxes will go to jail. Now we have to work on all the fake celebrities that are 19 million and more in debt and plea bankruptcy.

    Hello? We all know Al Capone was put away for not paying his taxes. It is called FRAUD and TAX EVASION and many people go to jail when they don't pay taxes like the rest of working class.



  14. 14

    Honestly, entertainers have business managers that take care of all that stuff. He shouldn't have to go to jail for mistakes that his staff made. Make him pay a fine then move on. Not fair.



  15. 15

    Wesley Snipes should go to prison. Pay your taxes idiot! Snipes made a fortune making movies, and won't pay his taxes? He used the " 861 argument", saying that US citizens' income is not taxable. Really? The little guys should pay all the taxes Wesley? Wesley said he was being made an example of by the IRS, well d-uh, that's what the IRS does best! If you're famous, it's free advertising for them! If you don't pay your taxes, look what happens, remember Wesley Snipes? He's in jail. GOOD!



  16. 16

    Garnish his wages! Lohan, charlie sheen, and all these other shitheads are doing worse with no jail time!



  17. 17

    If he was carrying drugs, doing drugs, defining court order, breaking probation, driving with suspended license, oh and a white girl he would be in a drug clinic and allow to go shopping and visit friends.

    Got to love the equality in the American judicial system.

    Re: @v@ – don't know about that. Ask Plaxico!!



  19. 19

    Hell no! That sucks! F*&k Sh7t Da*#/!



  20. 20

    if he goes to jail the ceo's of all the banks and all of wall street should go too because what wes did is not even significant to what those a-wholes did, its probably because hes not white yah i said it because its dammmmm true



  21. 21

    Crimes? Not filing tax returns? 3 years in prison? Fascist State!!!



  22. 22

    No, I don't want my tax dollar to go for his prison time. He could do community service teaching acting to under priviledge kids. Let's use him to help the community rather than sit in prison. That goes for most people who go to prison.



  23. 23

    if he can pay it all back with interest fine let him off. but if he doesnt have the assets then let the hammer fall. sorry man, thats the way it works and it seems pretty fair.

    peace out baby!

    PAY YOUR TAXES!



  24. 24

    If I would go to jail for the offense then he should go to jail for the offense. The same laws apply to celebrities.



  25. 25

    The creator is not happy with police, government, most people of power, most people of fame. Man was never meant to rule over or judge another man, no matter what status that man thinks he has. Jail lies within what he is not happy about. Im going through this but I am WILLFULLY going to FILE my returns!!. lol!



  26. 26

    Yes, that is the price you pay to live and work here.

    Hell yeah he should go to jail. I am sick and tired of celebrities gettin off easy. Hope he has to serve the entire 3 years.



  28. 28

    DUDE IS A LAME ASS BITCH!! HE HAD SINCE 2008 TO GOTO THE SLAMMER BUT HE DELAYED THINKING HE WUD GET OFF. STUPID ASS!!! ONCE THING THE GOVT DOESNT TAKE LIGHTLY IS TAX FRAUD AND IF HE STARTED SERVING THE SENTENCE SINCE '08 HE BE A FREE MAN TODAY WITH GOOD BEHAVIOR. SUCKS FOR HIM!!!



  29. 29

    DIDNT HE MAKE ONE OF HALLE BERRY'S EARS GO DEAF BY HITTING HER?? THEN THAT 3 YRS CONSTITUTES BOTH TAX FRAUD AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. BITCH SHUD BE LUCKY THEY ARE CONCURRENT SENTENCES THAN CONSECUTIVE!! HAHA.



  30. 30

    20 years ago he was "improper" towards my beautiful sister-in-law, underage at the time, when she went to audition for him. She never laid charges, so I think this is tres bien. Karma…….

    Re: trakstar5 – Not to mention Wall Street, lol.
    Re: trakstar5 – No good behavior?



  32. 32

    I don't think he should go to jail for not paying taxes. Millions of ppl cheat on their taxes every single year. Our jails would be standing room only if that were the case. Stupid. I think drugs are worse than tax evasion. Just saying.



  33. 33

    No! Just let him pay what he owes and be done with it. He's a great actor,yes. But he should still be held accountable. Jail? No! Pay up? Yes!



  34. 34

    What is it about black men thinking they can get away with not paying their taxes. Redd Fox and Sammy Davis Jr. tried the same thing. It's very simple. If you made 10 million dollars last year, the IRS is going to take at least 30% of it. Try to get out of paying it!



  35. 35

    Re: nancybee – you're an idiot. what does being black have to do with anything? Nothing, absolutely nothing. You are just like every other dipshit in society who uses the fallacy of hasty generalization to justify being an ignorant douche



  36. 36

    Re: billabong031 – Exactly! That was right on point and I couldn't have said it better myself.



  37. 37

    Re: nancybee – Ah, I'm sure there's been plenty of white celebrities who have cheated on their taxes, asshole.



  38. 38

    He should go to jail just like any other person would if they didn't pay their taxes.

    Of course he should go to jail. Anyone that purposely tries to avoid paying tax should get done for that. While most of us work hard pay our taxes he is earning millions and still trying to avoid paying. We all hate paying tax but we do it, when someone earns as much as Wesley then he should just pay up like the rest of us. Sorry dude. Probably didn't pay being an arrogant prick back in the day now its catching up to ya.

    "Wesley Snipes Goes To Prison." Film it. Film it all.
    That would be one way to fund the back taxes.
