Judge sentences Snipes to 3 years for tax convictions

 

Wesley Snipes called on famous friends to vouch for him, highlighted his clean criminal record and even wrote the government $5 million in checks - all in an effort to convince a judge that his conviction on tax charges should cost him nothing more than home detention and some public service announcements.

None of it worked. The Blade actor is doing hard time. Snipes was sentenced to three years in prison Thursday for failing to file tax returns, the maximum penalty - and a victory for prosecutors who sought to make an example of the action star.
