LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - A Florida judge sentenced Wesley Snipes to three years in jail for tax fraud today.

Snipes' attorney filed written testimonials from a few of Snipes' A-list friends - Denzel Washington, Woody Harrelson, and TV's Judge Joe Brown - to no avail.

In February, Snipes was convicted of three misdemeanor counts of failing to file a tax return. Today he was acquitted of felony tax fraud and conspiracy charges that carry a jail term of sixteen years.
