Wesley Snipes sorta fell off the radar after he was convicted of tax evasion in 2008 and sentenced to three years in prison. In fact, he fell so far off the radar, I forgot he even existed. Well, refresh your memory, folks – he’s done his time and he’s now out of the slammer and on house arrest until July. Let this be a lesson, folks: fill out your 1040EZ.
Passenger 57 is no longer Inmate #43355-018 — TMZ has learned Wesley Snipes has been released from prison.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons tells TMZ … Snipes was released on April 2 and transferred to the New York Community Corrections Office, which will oversee his home confinement.
Home confinement (aka house arrest) will end July 19.
Snipes checked into McKean Federal Correctional Institution in Pennsylvania back in December 2010 after he was convicted for failing to file federal income tax returns.
Well, that’s good, I guess? Maybe he can make a comeback with another Blade film, or in the next Expendables (which he’s rumoured to be a part of). Wesley Snipes just makes me think of Charlie Murphy saying he and Eddie were the blackest dudes in the game before Wesley came along. Now I want to watch Chappelle’s Show.
