Wesley Snipes finishes prison sentence

By Robert Kirchgassner ,

Actor Wesley Snipes was reportedly released from prison on Tuesday and is now under house arrest.

TMZ reported that Snipes, 50, was transferred to the Community Corrections Office in New York. The actor will be under house arrest until July 19.

He was convicted in 2008 for failing to file income tax returns from 1999-2001. Snipes unsuccessfully appealed for a retrial in 2010, which resulted in him checking into Pennsylvania’s McKean Federal Correctional Institution.

WENN stated that Snipes maintained his innocence during his trial.

The Inquisitr reported that Snipes may soon be on the big screen again in Gallowwalkers. The film, which began production in 2006, focuses on a man cursed due to his mother’s disobedience to God. This curse leads to him being haunted from beyond the grave by those who killed his lover.

A release date has not been set for the film, which co-stars Patrick Bergin.

Snipes is known for his roles in such films as White Men Can’t Jump (1992) and the Blade film series.
