Wesley Snipes receives three year jail sentence.
Hollywood star and serial tax dodger Wesley Snipes has been jailed for three years for non payment of taxes, despite playing a $5 million 'get-out-of-jail' card.
Despite giving the authorities the run-around for almost a decade, for taxes he insisted he never had to pay, Snipes wrote out, and delivered in court, three cheques for $5 million to the federal government, just hours before sentencing.
They took the money and his liberty for the next three years along with it.
