Wesley Snipes


The action star never assaulted anyone or robbed a convenience store or anything, but he did spend some time in prison for income tax evasion and a count of conspiring to defraud the United States. Snipes has argued that the government only pursued his case in order to make an example of him due to his fame. Given that Snipes’ charges are usually met with steep fees, but no prison time, he may be on to something there. The actor served his sentence without incident (save a denial of an appeal hearing), and was released in 2013.
