Wesley Snipes Surrenders on Tax Charge

Action movie star Wesley Snipes surrendered at the federal courthouse in Ocala, Florida, on tax fraud charges filed against him in October.  Snipes has been in Namibia filming a movie, and was released on $1 million bail and allowed to return there to finish the shoot.  Snipes' decision to return to the U.S. contrasts with that of another defendant residing in Namibia, Kobi Alexander, who is fighting extradition on securities fraud charges related to options-timing at Comverse Technology.  According to an AP story (here), Snipes must return to the U.S. by January 10, 2007, at the latest.  (ph)
