Wesley Snipes acquitted of tax fraud

Actor Wesley Snipes of Blade and White Men Can’t Jump fame has been acquitted of federal tax fraud charges. He was convicted of some misdemeanor counts of failing to file tax returns and could spend time in jail. Pretty encouraging still, considering his legal team was so convinced that the prosecution didn’t prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt that they didn’t even call any witnesses of their own. Snipes should consider himself very lucky: Pete Rose spent time in prison for income tax evasion. Redd Foxx and Sammy Davis Jr. both died broke because of failure to keep up with their income taxes. Willie Nelson, back a decade or so ago, had to sell off a lot of his property and possessions to settle his IRS debts.
