Wesley Snipes reportedly in federal custody
After a long tussle with the Federal government and a 2008 conviction on three counts of failure to file income taxes, Wesley Snipes has reportedly surrendered to a minimum security federal correctional facility in Pennsylvania.
Traci Billingsley, chief public information officer for the Bureau of Prisons, told TMZ, "Wesley Snipes has self surrendered to the minimum security Federal Prison Camp at the Federal Correctional Institution McKean, in Bradford, Pennsylvania."
In November, U.S. District Court Judge William T. Hodges denied Snipes's appeal and issued a 17-page order specifying that the "Blade" star must surrender to authorities and serve his three-year prison sentence. On Dec. 1, the U.S. Marshals Office ordered Snipes to report to prison by today, Dec. 9.
