Wesley Snipes' Tax Trial

OCALA, Fla. (AP) -- Wesley Snipes' attorney says another former juror from the actor's federal tax trial has come forward to suggest that jurors may not have acted properly.

Snipes' attorney filed a motion on Tuesday asking that he be allowed to interview the juror as well as another juror who sent the lawyer an unsolicited e-mail earlier suggesting jurors may not have behaved properly.

The first juror claimed that three other jurors had presumed Snipe's guilt.

Snipes was convicted in 2008 of three misdemeanor counts of willful failure to file his income tax returns.

The 47-year-old is free on an appeals bond. However, federal prosecutors in Florida have asked a judge to revoke the bond and order Snipes to begin serving a three-year sentence.

    Isn't it something - Wesley Snipes got 3 years however all these politicians that willfully fail to report get nothing, not even a slap on the wrist. How about that. Kinda crooked don't you think?

    Just because he is a celebrity doesn't mean he should be treated any differently from anyone else when it comes to the Law. If he did NOT pay taxes, then he should "man up" & do his time. He has no excuse for not paying his taxes! The common fold have to cough it up no matter what the economic situations are & if we don't, then we get in trouble. He should be held accountable & be made to do the same. No special "loop holes" just because of his celebrity status.
