Supreme Court says 'no' to Wesley Snipes' tax conviction appeal

Actor Wesley Snipes, currently serving time in federal prison for three misdemeanor convictions of failing to file tax returns, better get comfortable. He's stuck there for a while.

The U.S. Supreme Court today rejected Snipes' request for a hearing on whether he was tried in the wrong place. Snipes argues that he was a resident of New York (and New Jersey and California) at the time of his 2008 trial in Ocala, Fla.

The justices aren't going to examine where the actor, best known for the films "White Men Can't Jump" and the "Blade" vampire hunter trilogy, officially used to call home.

But the Supreme Court's refusal to hear Snipes' appeal has definitely settled questions about his current residency.

Snipes will continue bunking at the minimum security Federal Correctional Institution McKean in northwest Pennsylvania for the next two-and-a-half years
