Snipes asks for bail extension

Wesley Snipes's attorneys are asking a judge to extend the actor's bail as he prepares for a possible appeal of his three-year prison sentence for a tax conviction.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that attorneys urged a judge on Tuesday to continue the bail while they prepare to ask the US Supreme Court to hear his case.

The actor was recently ordered to begin serving his sentence, but the judge did not set a surrender date. Snipes has been free on bail while appealing his 2008 conviction for willful failure to file income tax returns.

The 48-year-old starred in the Blade trilogy, White Men Can't Jump and other films. He has recently been in Atlanta working on a new movie called Master Daddy.
