Karma is a bitch ain’t it?!
Actor Wesley Snipes and his attorneys are hoping to be saved by the recent arrest of Snipes’s financial adviser Kenneth Starr. Starr was charged in May with securities fraud totaling $59 million after he stole from celebrity clients such as Snipes and Sylvester Stallone. Since his arrest, Snipes’ lawyers are asking judicial officials in Georgia to throw out a petition they made appealing Snipes’ tax evasion conviction.
In 2008, Snipes was sentenced to three years in prison on tax fraud charges, however, he later decided to get the conviction overturned. Now Snipes’ lawyers want to go a whole different route and file a new request to either dismiss the conviction or grant the “Blade” star a new deal!
Guess you can’t trust anybody (even your so-called “financial adviser”) these days…
