Actor Wesley Snipes Reports To Jail, Becomes Inmate In White-Collar Prison
Actor and martial artist Wesley Snipes, 48, reported to prison for his 3 year jail sentence for tax evasion. Snipes reported to the McKean Federal Correctional Institution in Lewis Run, Pennsylvania and turned in his civilian clothes for prison attire.
Wesley Snipes made several attempts to escape the terms of his sentence by submitting appeals after being convicted in 2008 for failing to file his income taxes from 1999 through 2004, filing a false refund claim for the years 1996-1997 and for conspiring to defraud the government, as reported on HipHopRx.com.
During his prison term, Wesley Snipes will assume the identity of Prisons inmate No. 43355-018 in minimum security prison camp dubbed “Club Fed,” according to ABC, due to it being one of the nicer prisons for white-collar male prisoners who live dormitory-style.
Meanwhile, Snipes doesn’t believe he deserves time in jail and says that he found out that the system didn’t work for him and is more disappointed than anything.
