“Judge Dread” Indeed

April 24. 2008

“Demolition Man” star Wesley Snipes faced a judge dread of his own today that sentenced him to 3 years in prison for tax evasion. His tax preparer has been sentenced to prison as well.

Snipes Gets Maximum Sentence: 36 Months

Wesley Snipes was sentenced to 36 months in prison Thursday, the maximum sentence allowed…
