Wesley Snipes to serve 3 years in prison for tax convictions

Wesley Snipes called on famous friends to vouch for him, highlighted his clean criminal record and even wrote the government $5 million in checks — all in an effort to convince a judge that his conviction on tax charges should cost him nothing more than home detention and some public service announcements.

None of it worked. The "Blade" actor was ordered to do hard time.

Plonker

Whilst I agree that he is a plonker and what he did was wrong, the sentence seems harsh when dipsticks like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohen get a few weeks for drink driving - an offence that could kill someone! I don't get some of these judges and their sentences!!

You are of course quite right but money means more than a life in this mad old world we live.

Very good point. This seems a bit ridiculous. An example maybe?
