Wesley Snipes

Wesley Snipes was sentenced to three years in jail Thursday on charges of tax evasion.

In February, a jury in Florida had found Snipes guilty of failing to pay $2.7 million in taxes over a three-year span.

Snipes' attorneys had claimed in the Florida court that he owned only $228,000.

The Blade star was acquitted of three identical counts and two felony charges of tax fraud and conspiracy.

Three years in prison was the maximum sentence. Prosecutors had also sought a $5 million fine.
