The district court on Friday ordered Wesley Snipes to jail to begin serving his three-year sentence following his unsuccesful appeal of his conviction on three counts of willful failure to file tax returns under § 7203. United States v. Snipes, No. 5:06-cr-22-Oc-10 (M.D. FL Nov. 19, 2010):
The Defendant Snipes had a fair trial; he has had a full, fair, and thorough review of his conviction and sentence by the Court of Appeals; and he has had a full, fair, and thorough review of his present claims, during all of which he has remained at liberty. The time has come for the judgment to be enforced.
