Blade star Wesley Snipes has been ordered to start serving a three-year prison sentence for a felony tax conviction after a Florida judge rejected his bid for a new trial.

Revoking bail for the 48-year-old movie actor, the judge ordered him to report to prison as directed by the US Marshal’s Service or Bureau of Prisons.

“Snipes had a fair trial. The time has come for the judgment to be enforced.” US District Judge Terrell Hodges said in his ruling.

It was not made clear when or where The White Men Can’t Jump and Demolition Man hero would begin serving his sentence.
