Actor Wesley Snipes is sentenced to three years in jail for cheating The Man of his tax dollars. He is not going to be sentenced to cyrogenic storage in San Angeles like the sci-fi movie Demolition Man, and John Spartan didn't catch him at his tax minimisation, however.

US Judge Terrell Hodges has sentenced Wesley Trent Snipes to three years imprisonment for charges of failing to file income tax returns. Snipes was found guilty by a jury on February 1st 2008.

"Snipes' long prison sentence should send a loud and crystal clear message to all tax defiers that if they engage in similar tax defier conduct, they face joining him and his co-defendants, Kahn and Rosile, as inmates in prison," Nathan Hochman told, Assistant Attorney General.

"The law is very clear: people must pay their taxes," added IRS bod Douglas Shulman. "There is no secret formula that eliminates a person's tax obligations, nor are there any special exceptions. The majority of Americans pay their taxes timely and accurately. Those who willfully violate the law must be held accountable."

Sadly, Snipes will not get to kidnap Lt Lenina Huxley (aka Sandra Bullock) while serving his bird.
