Wesley Snipes

After numerous attempts to appeal his conviction on tax crimes, Wesley Snipes has been ordered by a judge to surrender immediately to begin serving a three year sentence.

According to TMZ, a U.S. District Court judge has finally put his foot down and is demanding that the actor turn himself in.

He was found guilty on tax evasion charged in 2008.

Earlier this week, federal attorneys asked the judge to revoke Snipes’ bond if the actor is not granted a new trial.

The actor’s attorney had argued for a new trial alleging jury bias in his 2008 conviction. They claimed two jurors are now accusing other jurors of deciding the case without hearing evidence. They also said prosecutors hid damaging information about a key witness.

Federal prosecutors on Monday said questioning those jurors about their deliberations would violate juror rules and intimidate future juries.
