11th Circuit Grants Wesley Snipes Oral Argument in Appeal of His Tax Fraud Conviction

Ellen Podgor (Stetson) of our sister White Collar Crime Blog reports that the 11th Circuit has granted actor Wesley Snipes oral argument in the appeal of his conviction on three misdemeanor tax fraud counts.  Oral argument is scheduled for November 2009, so Mr. Snipes should remain free on bail until well into 2010.  Ellen notes that the 11th Circuit last year granted oral argument in only 16% of criminal appeals, so this is a real coup for the Snipes defense team.
