Wesley Snipes ordered to jail over taxes

Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes was ordered Friday to surrender to authorities to begin his three-year sentence.

U.S. District Judge William Terrell Hodges said Snipes had a fair trial in 2008 when the actor was convicted for failing to file his income tax returns in 1999, 2000 and 2001 and should turn himself in.

According to the BBC, Snipes appealed to the courts decision and has been on bail ever since.

The 48-year-old "Blade" trilogy star was acquitted of two more serious felony charges, the LA Times reported.
