Wesley Snipes has lost his valiant appeal. A federal court in Atlanta upheld tax evasion convictions against the actor late last week. Snipes had appealed his conviction on three misdemeanor counts of failing to file taxes from 1999 to 2001. He was found to owe $17 million in penalties and back taxes and also given a three-year prison sentence. Maybe Lil' Wayne should have been paying more attention to the Snipes case while in jail, as I previously reported that the rapper has had tax lien placed against him for failing to pay Uncle Sam.
Snipes was wildly popular, especially in action movies and Spike Lee joints, back in the 1990s before his career somehow ended up in the dumper amid a sea of straight-to-DVD releases.
