Actor Wesley Snipes was ordered Wednesday to voluntarily surrender at a federal prison in Pennsylvania next week to begin his three-year sentence for failing to pay taxes.
Federal prosecutors on Monday asked that Wesley Snipes' bond be revoked if a judge refuses to grant the "Blade" actor a new trial on tax-related charges. Snipes' defense attorney asked for the new trial during a two-hour hearing in federal court. Daniel Meachum argued that two jurors had sent him e-mails recently claiming three other jurors had determined Snipes' guilt before the 2008 trial began.
attorney Daniel Meachum, who has represented Michael Vick and Wesley Snipes, said that young stars face extraordinary scrutiny of their actions and their response to early trouble will resonate for years.
"Wisdom only comes through experience," Meachum said. "And, (Bieber) does not have that yet. What you hope is the people around him that have the wisdom can impart that wisdom on him and to him in such a way that it keeps him from making some of the mistakes that he could make in the future."
