Wesley Snipes Reports to Prison

For the next three years, Wesley Snipes will also be known as inmate number 43355-018. The actor reported to a Pennsylvania federal prison Thursday to begin his three-year sentence for failing to file his taxes. Snipes was convicted in April 2008, but ultimately lost two years of appeals. He is expected to serve out his time in a satellite minimum security prison camp, usually reserved for white collar criminals and coloquially known as “Club Fed.” "It's a nice place, but it's definitely not like checking into a hotel," said one prison consultant. Snipes did not make a statement on his way into the facility, but did tell Larry King in a recent interview that he was nervous about heading to jail. He added that he was "more upset and disappointed" that the system "doesn't seem to be working" for him.
