Snipes said that he is hoping that the arrest of his former financial adviser will force the court to take another look at the charges, which landed Snipes in jail for a three year prison sentence. He has been seeking to have his conviction overturned for quite some time, but now his attorneys want to file a new appeal based on the recent arrest of his former financial adviser, Kenneth Starr. - Photo from UrbanCelebs @ Spreadit.Org
