Snipes Cites Racist Prosecution Plot in Ocala

Nov 8, 2007 Full story:

A lawyer for Wesley Snipes is trying to have his trial on tax evasion charges moved from Ocala to Manhattan, on the grounds that the Ocala area is too racist to allow the black actor a fair trial.


The motion goes on to describe the area as "a hotbed of Klan activity where the Klan adopted highways to commemorate the Klan and the Confederate flag flies over government property."

All he has to do is show him Topix forums on crime and he'll get his wish.

No judge will buy it though. Nice try Wesley. The "Klan" didn't keep you from paying your taxes...
