Wesley Snipes has barely been in jail for a week, and he already wants out!
The actor’s lawyers filed a brand new appeal Friday (Dec 17), asking the court to let him out of prison (temporarily) so that he can take his tax evasion case to the Supreme Court.
Details (via TMZ) are below:
According to the documents — filed in Florida — Snipes wants the U.S. Court of Appeals to overturn a decision that denied him bail last week … right before he entered Federal Prison. Snipes’ lawyers want SUPCO to determine if Wesley should get a new trial because of alleged juror bias during his tax evasion case.
In other “jailbird news,” DMX was sentenced to a year in prison after he pleaded guilty to violating the terms of his probation.
The rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, failed to check in with his probation officer after was arrested back in November following a concert performance, and is headed RIGHT BACK to prison for the umpteenth time this year.
X just turned 40 years old Saturday (Dec 18), so it might be almost time for him to act his age 🙂
