First off, Wesley Snipes would like to make it clear that he's going to prison for avoiding, not evading, taxes.
"I was never charged with tax evasion," the Blade star, who's been ordered to surrender by Thursday at noon to begin his three-year stay in a Pennsylvania federal prison, stated tonight on Larry King Live. "I was convicted of three misdemeanors of willful failure to file a form."
"And how is that different from evasion?" inquired King, bless him.
"Well, I'm not the lawyer, Larry, so I'll let the lawyer explain that a little bit further," Snipes evaded the question replied.
