wesley-snipes-bigFrom MiamiHerald.com:

A federal appeals court Friday upheld the three-year prison sentence against film star Wesley Snipes, who was convicted two years ago of failing to file income tax returns for three years.

The opinion by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is the latest blow to the action movie icon, whose attorneys argued that the three-year sentence was “unreasonable” and that he should have been granted a hearing to decide whether his trial should have been held in New York instead of Florida.

But the three-judge panel concluded in a 35-page ruling that the Florida federal court that sentenced Snipes “acted well within its considerable discretion.”

The actor has been free on bail while he appealed the convictions for willfully failing to file his federal income taxes from 1999 to 2001. Snipes’ attorney declined to comment. It’s unclear when the actor will have to report to prison.
