Wesley snipes was sentenced! to 3 years in prison!

I don’t know why that shocked me, but it does.

Apparently the prosecutors wanted the maximum sentence they could get – and they got it.

As for his defending attorneys:

They argued he should get only probation because his three convictions were all misdemeanors and the actor had no previous criminal record.

But U.S. District Judge William Terrell Hodges said Snipes exhibited a “history of contempt over a period of time” for U.S. tax laws, and granted prosecutors the three year sentence they requested — one year for each of Snipes’ convictions of willfully failing to file a tax return.

I wonder when he goes in…  Or if he already has – I can’t seem to find that information.
