wesley snipes appeal gets denied

Tough times continue for Wesley!

Back in December, actor-turned-tax-evader Wesley Snipes filed an appeal requesting that he get a new trial with the U.S. Supreme Court.

Unfortunately for Wes, the Supreme Court isn't interested, and his latest attempt to get his sentence overturned has been denied.

As a reminder, Wesley was convicted in 2008 on tax evasion charges, and was sentenced to three years in federal minimum security prison starting last December.

Sorry to hear it, Wes, but as we've said before, actions have consequences.

Hopefully you continue trying to make the best of your time away, and who knows? Maybe you'll get some new acting opportunities when you get out!

What do U think about Wesley's appeal getting denied? Does he deserve another trial?

    Wow, three years is a long time. They should have just made him pay 2x what he owed instead.
