Wesley Snipes is “in transit” to a federal prison to serve 3 years due to his conviction of tax evasion back in 2008.
According to TMZ, Snipes surrendered himself to federal authorities yesterday to began his sentence. Snipes tried to appeal his conviction on multiple tax evasion charges. Snipes even got some of his celebrity friends, like Denzel Washington and Woody Harrelson, to write letters to the court pleading for him to only get probation. Guess that didn’t help.
As the old saying goes, don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.
