Paying for being prosecuted

Posted by Media Outrage on June 20, 2008

Wesley Snipes received a “cost of prosecution bill” that demands repayment for the money they spent convicting him.

Via Eurweb:

*Federal prosecutors sent Wesley Snipes a “cost of prosecution bill” that demands repayment for the money they spent convicting him on tax charges.

The government wants Snipes to pay $217,363 – which includes $21,052.19 for the time and travel expenses of witnesses, many of whom were IRS employees; $193,716.98 for the cost of scanning, printing and copying documents used in the case (including 260 boxes of documents seized from the Florida firm that prepared Snipes’ responses to the IRS) and $2,456.40 for daily trial transcripts, according to the report sent to the judge.

Additionally, $138.18 is owed by Snipes for making certified color copies of trial exhibits, the report says.

Mediaoutrage– Interesting so you have to shell out more dough to pay them back for the money they spent to get you convicted and sent away for 3 years.
