Wesley Snipes better enjoy his Memorial Day weekend. If he doesn’t win his appeal, it may be the last holiday weekend that he enjoys for a few years.

Snipes was scheduled to report to federal prison on June 3 but was granted a reprieve. Nonetheless, Snipes will eventually have to surrender to federal prison authorities to serve his three year prison sentence assuming that it is not overturned on appeal. Snipes’ attorneys plan to argue to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that the trial judge erred during Snipes’ trial earlier in the year.

Snipes was granted bail during his appeal, with Judge Hodges ruling, remarkably, that Snipes wasn’t a flight risk. Prosecutors argued that Snipes’ appeal did not have merit and that Snipes has demonstrated he could flee. US Attorney Robert O’Neill cited evidence that Snipes told the probation office after his arrest he had less than $10,000 in liquid assets, but then produced a $5 million payment for back taxes at his sentencing. “His apparent lack of candor about his assets, combined with trial evidence that he has transferred millions of dollars offshore, show some risk of flight,” O’Neill wrote.

Judge Hodges didn’t bite. He granted Snipes bail meaning that Snipes would be free while he awaits his appeal.

Stay tuned!

    Folks, I hate to beat a dead horse; but Wesley Snipes is innocent of all charges. The Government failed to produce ANY LAW that required him to file or pay “Income Taxes”. So Kelly, why would you “Assume” that his convictions would not be overturned??? The trial judge works for the people who were prosecuting him; do you really think the judge would rule against the people that pay his salary??? Not to mention the majority of people that do not file or pay income taxes in America are judges, attorneys and CPA’s; do you really think that these people want to bring attention to their own tax status????

    This is a big problem in America, judges having life tenure, getting paid by the government, and not having to answer to “We the People” for their unconstitutional and corrupt rulings! And just try and claim a Constitutional right in a court in America and see how fast you are cited for contempt of court. Heck the corrupt judge that threw Mr. Schiff in jail is quoted as saying…”I will not allow the law into my court” What the H#!! do you call that?????

  15. I’ve never understood claims such as this that “The Government failed to produce ANY LAW that required him to file or pay “Income Taxes”. What does that mean exactly? I don’t know if there is a law or not, but obviously we have to pay income taxes. Come on people, enough of this already!

  16. (Taxman) Mike Reply

    Well Keith, what it means exactly is that there is NO LAW that requires you, me, or Wesley to file or pay income taxes.

    So no you do NOT have to pay “Income Taxes” because the LAW does not require you to.

    It is the corrupt IRS and Federal Judges that make you pay, NOT the LAW!!!!

    Is that simple enough for you to understand?

    Yes “WE” must pay taxes; but only the taxes the law requires us to pay.

    How about listening to what the US Congress has to say about the subject?

    Senator John E. Ensign–
    “I cannot point to a specific place in the law where it says you must pay income taxes.”

    Congressman Dan Burton—
    “You are correct in your assertion that the word “liability” or terminology “liability for income taxes” is not contained in any Section of the Internal Revenue Code”

    Aaron Russo: “Is there a law that requires people to file a 1040?”
    Congressman Ron Paul: “Not explicitly, but it’s certainly implied.”
    Aaron Russo: “Well implied by force; but is there a law?”
    Congressman Ron Paul: “I cannot cite a law, no, I cannot….”

    It is the corrupt IRS and Federal Judges that make you pay, NOT the LAW!!!!
    Is that simple enough for you to understand?
    Yes “WE” must pay taxes; but only the taxes the law requires us to pay.
    How about listening to what the US Congress has to say about the subject?
    Senator John E. Ensign–
    “I cannot point to a specific place in the law where it says you must pay income taxes.”
    Congressman Dan Burton—
    “You are correct in your assertion that the word “liability” or terminology “liability for income taxes” is not contained in any Section of the Internal Revenue Code”
    Aaron Russo: “Is there a law that requires people to file a 1040?”
    Congressman Ron Paul: “Not explicitly, but it’s certainly implied.”
    Aaron Russo: “Well implied by force; but is there a law?”
    Congressman Ron Paul: “I cannot cite a law, no, I cannot….”

    Well Keith, what it means exactly is that there is NO LAW that requires you, me, or Wesley to file or pay income taxes.
    So no you do NOT have to pay “Income Taxes” because the LAW does not require you to.

  30. Let’s hope this guy kicks their @#$, but as a back up, I sent soap on a rope, a loose bar of it on the shower floor is not a good thing.

  31. Your argument is frivolous, Mike. If you don’t want Bubba, Butch or Gordo as roomies, pay your tax. Bet Wesley wishes he had.

    Pancho,
    How can the truth be frivolous?? You sound like you work for the IRS! That is the best argument they can come up with; the truth is frivolous.

    Let me ask you a question…

    If everyone in America was taking turns jumping to their death from atop the Empire State Building; would you follow them and die??? Or would you think for yourself and come up with a better plan????

    Maybe a plan to live???

    So again I ask you; how can the truth be frivolous???
