Snipes tax evasion trial begins

I’m not going to spend a whole lot of time commenting on actor Wesley Snipes tax evasion trial going on in central Florida this week.

I wouldn’t say anything differently about any one of my own personal clients either.

I’ll try to have my colleague over at the Defense Zzone to expand on the trials and tribulations that are bound to encompass this case.
