Our beloved actor Wesley Snipes was sentenced to three years in prison Thursday for failing to file income tax returns for three years.
U.S. District Judge William Terrell Hodges handed out the maximum penalty under law.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Snipes was found guilty of the misdemeanors in February but acquitted of five other charges, including two felonies of tax fraud and conspiracy. The convictions for failing to file returns covered the years 1999 to 2001.

I’m just sayin…
