The tax rebates are going out today for those who paid Uncle Sam. But actor Wesley Snipes won’t get one. He was acquitted of tax fraud, but convicted of failing to file federal tax returns for 3 years running. Also tonight, the shark warnings have been taken down after Friday’s attack off San Diego.
In February, actor Wesley Snipes was acquitted of tax fraud and conspiracy, but convicted of failing to file federal tax returns for three years in a row. Those were misdemeanor charges, and Snipes apologized and even tried to make a down payment. But Florida federal judge William Terrell Hodges wouldn’t accept it and he sentenced Snipes to a year on each count - 3 years in federal prison.
