Actor Will Snipes has been sentenced to three years in prison due to failure to pay his taxes. Although Snipes's lawyers begged and pleaded argued before a federal judge by obtaining letter(s) from the actors's friends (Denzel Washington,Woody Harrelson) and family members "attesting to his good character". Prosecutors did not budge. I don't understand what it is about these celebrities when they get ahold of some money. Now you have the money and you know you have the ability to aim higher. Why do some dumb sh*t like this?
OCALA, Fla. (AP) -- A federal judge has sentenced action star Wesley Snipes to the maximum three-year sentence on tax charges. Prosecutors had requested three years, one year for each of Snipes' convictions of willfully failing to file a tax return. Snipes' lawyers offered three dozen letters from family members, friends and even fellow actors Woody Harrelson and Denzel Washington attesting to his good character. They argued he should get only probation, because all three convictions were misdemeanors and the actor had no previous criminal record.[Source]
