Snipes Appeal Heard Today

Wesley Snipes had another day in court today. Oral arguments were heard in his appeal of his conviction on three misdemeanor tax evasion charges. Mr. Snipes’ attorneys argued that the trial should have been moved from Ocala, Florida to protect Mr. Snipes’ rights and that the sentence was harsh. The government argued that the trial was held in the proper venue and that Mr. Snipes received an appropriate sentence.

Mr. Snipes is free on bail while his appeal is being heard. It will likely be the Spring before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals rules on Mr. Snipes’ appeal.
