Wesley Snipes gets maximum sentence

Posted by Media Outrage on April 24, 2008

Wesley Snipes has received the maximum sentence for his tax-evasion charges.

Via OMG:

Wesley Snipes was sentenced to three years in prison on tax charges Thursday, a victory for prosecutors who sought to make an example of the action star by aggressively pursuing the maximum penalty.

Snipes’ lawyers had spent much of the day in court offering dozens of letters from family members, friends — even fellow actors Woody Harrelson and Denzel Washington — attesting to the good character of the “Blade” star and asking for leniency. They argued he should get only probation because his three convictions were all misdemeanors and the actor had no previous criminal record.

But U.S. District Judge William Terrell Hodges said Snipes exhibited a “history of contempt over a period of time” for U.S. tax laws, and granted prosecutors the three year sentence they requested — one year for each of Snipes’ convictions of willfully failing to file a tax return.

“In my mind these are serious crimes, albeit misdemeanors,” Hodges said.

Snipes apologized while reading from a written statement for his “costly mistakes,” but never mentioned the word taxes.

“I am an idealistic, naive, passionate, truth-seeking, spiritually motivated artist, unschooled in the science of law and finance,” Snipes said.

Snipes said his wealth and celebrity attracted “wolves and jackals like flies are attracted to meat.” He called himself “well-intentioned, but miseducated.”

Mediaoutrage– Dag the judge just put his freedom on pause for 1,095 days. Keep ya head up. They’re probably sending his measurements to the Jumpsuit knitting department right now. SMH.

This can’t be………………………….

Posted by Media Outrage on April 24, 2008

D-Wade and Star Jones were spotted together at a tennis game in Miami recently. As you already know Dwayne has separated from his wife and now Star Jones has filed for divorce from sweet Al, and now because of pictures like these the rumors of a relationship between D-Wade and Star are swirling like crazy. We like Star Jones, we just feel like she needs to get locked down in a Old Country Buffet. But if D-Wade wants her then he must have been a major fan of this villain on this popular 80’s cartoon.

Ashanti performs in NY

Posted by Media Outrage on April 24, 2008

Ashanti performed in NY on Tuesday night and was spotted going back to her hotel looking mighty fine if we might say. We don’t care that her singing causes a few migraines, regardless she is still a certified banger when it comes to looks. That body is ridiculous so we hope the album is half as good. Gayle King was in attendance. You gotta love Gayle she is the one who talked Oprah out of committing suicide, so no Gayle no Oprah we guess.

Posted by Media Outrage on April 24, 2008

Tamia and her pretty self was in attendance on Tuesday night in NY at the Nokia Theatre, as ASCAP honored music legend Quincy Jones by presenting him with the Pied Piper Award. Rev. Al Sharpton and Tevin Campbell also came out. We haven’t seen Tevin since the early 90’s when he was dancing all over the place with his cross color’s gear. Quincy is definitely the King of the Young Jawns.
