Supreme Court turns down Wesley Snipes' appeal

LOS ANGELES

The /*Supreme Court*/ refused Monday to hear an appeal from the "Blade" actor, who was convicted in 2008 on three misdemeanor counts of willfully not filing income tax returns.

Snipes started a three-year term in a federal minimum security in December.

The 48-year-old also has appeared in films, such as "White Men Can't Jump" and "Demolition Man."
