Wesley Snipes facing multiple tax fraud indictments

Blade and Jungle Fever star
Wesley Snipes is facing the
prospect of a lengthy stint in jail if he is convicted on multiple charges of
income tax fraud.

According to
US
reports
, Snipes has been charged with dodging millions of dollars in taxes.

Federal prosecutors in Tampa have issued an eight-count indictment accusing
Snipes and two other men – one of whom is a former accountant – of conspiracy to
defraud the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and
submitting fake claims.

The conspiracy and false claim charges carry a maximum sentence of five years
imprisonment each, while Snipes could receive up to a 12-month jail term for
each count of failing to file tax returns, prosecutors said.

Snipes has not yet commented publicly on the matter
