Wesley Snipes to Start Serving 3-Year Prison Sentence

According to the Associated Press, a federal judge ordered actor Wesley Snipes to surrender to authorities Friday so he can begin serving a three-year prison sentence for tax-related crimes.

The 48-year-old star was convicted in 2008 on three misdemeanor counts of willful failure to file his income tax returns. He was acquitted of two more serious felony charges.

His attorney said he didn’t know when and where Snipes would report to prison, although he said later in an interview that he didn’t expect the Bureau of Prisons to take custody of the actor for another five to seven days. Snipes is in Atlanta, preparing to film the movie “Master Daddy.”
