Federal prosecutors in Florida have asked a judge to revoke the appeal bond of movie star Wesley Snipes.

Prosecutors want the judge to order Snipes to surrender and begin serving a three-year sentence for willfully failing to file federal income tax returns. An appeals court decided Snipes had received a fair trial and sentence.

The motion was filed Wednesday in federal court in Ocala.

Snipes, 47, was granted an appellate bond. He was allowed to remain free after U.S. District Judge William Terrell Hodges imposed a 36-month sentence for the tax-related misdemeanor convictions.

Snipes’ attorney Daniel Meachum didn’t immediately return an e-mail request from The Associated Press.
