Actor Wesley Snipes was found not guilty of felony charges of tax fraud and conspiracy, but was found guilty on three misdemeanor charges of failing to file a tax return for three years.

He was also acquitted of three other misdemeanor charges. Snipes, 45, faces three years in prison as opposed to the 16 he might have served if he had been convicted on all counts. The Blade trilogy star faced trial with a tax protest leader, Eddie Ray Kahn, and a former CPA who lost his licenses in Ohio and Florida, Douglas Rosile. They were convicted on separate felony counts.
