Wesley Snipes Ordered To Report To Jail
Snipes will more than likely appeal the ruling.
Jude Hodges stated:
“The Defendant Snipes had a fair trial; he has had a full, fair, and thorough review of his conviction and sentence by the Court of Appeals; and he has had a full, fair, and thorough review of his present claims, during all of which he has remained at liberty. The time has come for the judgment to be enforced.”
Both of the above motions had been argued on Monday before the judge at the Ocala federal courthouse.
Snipes’ convictions and Hodge’s 36-month sentence from back in July this was upheld by a federal court of appeals. Hodges did allow for Snipes’ bail to be revoked pending resolution of these motions.
The Star-Banner is reporting that Snipes’ attorney Daniel Meachum, had stated immediately following Monday’s arguments that they would appeal to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals if Hodges were to deny his motions.
