So it’s STILL up in the air whether Wesley Snipes is going to jail tomorrow or not. He believes the statement Larry King read quoting a juror in his tax evasion trial, could be used as new evidence that could possibly keep him out of prison.
TMZ is now reporting:
During the show, Larry read a statement from a member of the jury that convicted Snipes during his tax evasion trial which said, “There was one juror that had said they knew Mr. Snipes was guilty right when they first saw him during the jury selection.”
Wesley’s legal team immediately jumped into action — and moments ago, they filed an emergency motion for a new trial based on juror misconduct.
As we previously reported, Snipes is due to begin his three-year prison sentence in Pennsylvania tomorrow for willful failure to file federal income tax returns.
No word on whether or not the judge will grant this new motion.
