Actor Wesley Snipes has just been ordered to start his three year sentence next week in a federal Pennsylvania prison after failing to pay his taxes.
The 48-year-old has starred in movies such as the ‘Blade’ trilogy and ‘White Men Can’t Jump”.
Snipes was issued a notice Wednesday by the U.S. Marshall’s office to voluntary surrender himself to the Federal Correction Institution McKlean in Lewis Run, PA by noon on December 9.
Though not successfully, Snipes tried to remain free on bail while appealing his conviction to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The actor was convicted in 2008 for the willful failure to file income tax returns.
