Supreme Court, Santa Claus…anyone want to help this guy? Wesley Snipes told Larry King Live last night that he hasn’t given up on evading his three-year prison sentence for tax evasion. “We still have prayers out there, Larry, and we believe in miracles,” said the Passenger 57 star. “Don’t send me up the river, yet.” Wesley is scheduled to be sent up the river Thursday, more than two and a half years after his sentencing.
Snipes, who still argues his accountants and handlers hold all the blame for his negligence (“the system seems to not be working for me”), previously put in a request to stay out of jail until 2011, because…you know, the holidays! Denying Snipes’ Christmas wish, the court noted he has had since 2008 to “put his affairs in order.” “The sooner he begins his sentence,” said Judge Scrooge, “the sooner it will end.” What a humbug!
