Actor Wesley Snipes faces 40 years for alleged tax evasion

According to the indictment, Snipes, Kahn and Rosile tried "through dishonest means, to make it appear as if Snipes had no liability for federal income taxes, when, in fact, Snipes had such tax liabilities. As part of the scheme, the defendants allegedly prepared and filed two amended federal income tax returns for Snipes, fraudulently claiming refunds of 1996 and 1997 income taxes previously paid, totaling almost 12 million dollars."

What, like this guy didn't already have enough money? If this is true, they should lock him up for a long time - not one of those Martha Stewart slaps on the wrist, no probation. Hard time.
