Wesley Snipes Gets Three Years in Jail

Wesley Snipes was sentenced to three years in jail based on three misdemeanor counts of failing to file his tax returns on Thursday. This was the maximum sentence that federal prosecutors were seeking.

Snipes‘ attorneys, however, will appeal the sentence. They were pleading for either probation or house arrest for their client.

The actor, 45, submitted checks summing to $5 million prior to the sentencing, but it was not enough. The IRS calculates that Snipes had an initial debt of approximately $15 million.

Snipes showed little emotion, however, he shouted a loud “wow” as he left the courtroom.
