From Passenger 57 to Inmate Number 43355-018...
Despite numerous attempts to overturn his conviction, including a last-minute plea on Larry King Live this week, Wesley Snipes is officially a ward of the state. He checked into McKean Federal Correctional Institution in Lewis Run, Pennsylvania today.
Federal Bureau of Prison spokesman Edmond Ross said the processing of the actor - who has been sentenced to three years for failure to file taxes - went off "without incident."As for the institution itself?
Larry Levine, a former 10-year federal inmate and founder of Wall Street Prison Consultants, said Snipes is residing in a place known as "Club Fed."
"McKean the Dream, that's what we call it," he told ABC News. "It's a nice place, but it's definitely not like checking into a hotel."
