No Delay for Snipes

The Associated Press is reporting that Wesley Snipes attempts to continue his tax evasion trial in Federal District Court have been denied. His trial will continue as originally scheduled on January 14, 2008.

According to the article,

The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied a motion from Snipes’ legal team to delay the trial, which is set to begin Jan. 14. The court also granted federal prosecutors’ motion to dismiss a defense request seeking to move the trial out of Ocala, about 80 miles north of Orlando.

Snipes was indicted

with fraudulently claiming refunds totaling almost $12 million in 1996 and 1997 for income taxes already paid. Snipes was also charged with failure to file returns from 1999 through 2004.
