Sniped Down Again on Appeal
Earlier today, the Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit issued an opinion affirming the denial of Wesley Snipes’ motion for a new trial and to interview jurors who convicted him in 2008 for willfully failing to file tax returns.
In case you didn’t know, Wesley Snipes is currently serving a three-year sentence for his 2008 convictions. He was acquitted of the more serious felony charges brought against him. If you read some background on the case, you may find yourself surprised that he wasn’t convicted of any felonies. I certainly was.
