Wesley Snipes is going to jail. Or is he? It seems like he and his legal team have not given up on their attempts to avoid jail time. In an interview in Larry King Live, Larry read a statement from a member of the jury that convicted Snipes. The statement suggests that the jury was not 100% impartial during the trial and that at least one juror decided that Snipes was guilty even before the trial began,
Based on this statement Snipes’ legal team filed a motion for a new trial. It is still not clear whether the motion will be accepted.
if the motion is denied, Wesley Snipes will have to report to prison tomorrow, when he will begin serving his 3 years sentence.
I think that we can all agree that the main lesson to be learnt from Snipes case is: Don’t forget to pay your taxes.
