Ocala Florida Wesley Snipes was sentenced for a maximum three-years in prison for evading taxes. He wrote the government three checks for $5 million and that still didn't save him.
U.S. Attorney Robert O'Neill told reporters outside the usually quiet central Florida courthouse. "Rich, poor, good actor or in this case bad actor it doesn't matter. We all pay our taxes."
Snipes read aloud from a prepared apology, calling his actions "costly mistakes" He said he was the victim of crooked advisers, a liability of wealth and celebrity that attract "wolves and jackals like flies are attracted to meat.""I am an idealistic, naive, passionate, truth-seeking, spiritually motivated artist, unschooled in the science of law and finance," Snipes said.
Consider this karma for slapping Halle Berry around and making bad movies.
