Snipes Must Pay Government Back

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

Wesley Snipes has been ordered to pay the government back for the cost of prosecuting him. Wesley is free on bond while his defense team appeals his conviction on three misdemeanor counts of willfully failing to file a federal tax return. If his conviction is upheld, he could face up to thirty-six months in prison. U.S. District Court Judge William Terrell Hodges has ordered Snipes to pay $217,363.75. The total prosecution costs include a fee of $193,716 for scanning, printing and numbering documents seized from the anti-tax organization that advised Snipes how to avoid his tax obligation. He also must repay the government more than $21,000 for witness fees, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Last month, Judge Hodges gave Wesley permission to travel to London and then to Bangkok in September to work on two films. From the sound of things, it looks like he’s going to need to work a lot to pay off his mounting legal fees.

Candle Blowers

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

Wesley Snipes hasn’t exactly had the most stellar of years, but I’m sure his fans still try to remember the good (New Jack City, White Men Can’t Jump, and the first Blade) and let go of the bad (loaded weapon conviction, reckless driving conviction, and that tax evasion stuff). But this man’s a rider, so there’s no holding him back. Whatever that means. And it’s also his birthday, so let’s wish Mr. Snipes a happy 46th, shall we? Happy birthday, Wesley! Other folks eating birthday cake today:
