Wesley Snipes won’t be home for Christmas

Wesley Snipes won’t be home for the holidays after a judge denied his request to move the date in which he surrenders himself for his jail sentence.

He filed a request with the judge last week, asking him to move the turn in date from December 9th to January 6, 2011, but was denied.

TMZ reports:

Wesley’s argument … he has “four minor children” and didn’t want to get locked up “in the middle of the holiday season.”

But a judge didn’t see it that way — because according to documents filed today in Florida, the judge denied the request citing the fact that Wesley was originally sentenced over two-and-a-half years ago … and therefore the actor had “all of that time to place his affairs in order.”

The judge also wrote, “The sooner he begins his sentence, the sooner it will end.”

Poor guy…That has to suck, not being able to spend the holidays with your kids…. But it’s not like this was a surprise, right?

Wesley Snipes has 1 week to turn himself in to prison!

According to TMZ, Wesley Snipes must turn himself in to a Pennsylvania prison – by next week!

Snipes is due to begin his three-year prison sentence for tax evasion on December 9th. And according to documents obtained by TMZ, Snipes got an ominous warning from the U.S. Marshals Service: “Failure to report at the designated place and time may result in additional criminal charges.”

Snipes has appealed several times ever since he was convicted on tax evasion charges back in 2008 — but looks like it’s the end of the road.
