Snipes could face hefty jail sentence

US federal prosecutors say actor Wesley Snipes should serve the maximum penalty for failing to file a tax return

Federal prosecutors want actor Wesley Snipes to serve the maximum possible
sentence for failing to file a tax return.

In court documents filed last Monday, they say Snipes’ case ‘cries out’ for a
maximum jail term, which is up to three years, according to
Associated
Press
.

The star’s lawyer said he had not reviewed the documents and would respond
with his own pre-sentencing memorandum.

Snipes, who is set to be sentenced on April 24, was convicted in February of
failing to file a tax return. He was acquitted of the more serious charges of
tax fraud and conspiracy.
