Wesley Snipes Doing ‘Legal Stuff’ To Stay Out Of Prison…..I Think.
To be honest, I am not really sure what this shit means, except he does not have to surrender himself to finally do the jail time he was sentenced to two years ago for massive tax evasion. I think…
An appellate court upheld Snipes’ conviction and sentence last month, but on Aug. 5, U.S. District Court Judge William Terrell Hodges gave Snipes’ camp 20 days to file a motion for a new trial, after which prosecutors would have 20 days to respond.
Hodges also said at the time that he would refrain from ruling on any motions from either side, such as one to revoke Snipes’ bond (prosecution) and another for permission to question trial jurors about any preexisting bias (defense).
Today, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida ruled that all of the pending motions preempted the prison sentence for now and no new surrender date was set.
Can anyone explain that? In English please….
