I thought that Wesley was already out. Didn't realize he has been in there for all this time. Hopefully he can resume his movie career at the same level it was at before.

3 years only... He got an easy sentence considering he robbed the government of 7 million bucks... I know 3 people in federal prison for doing similar crimes of not filing federal tax and they are doing 10 years... preferential treatment going on with Wesley.... i wonder if he ever has to pay back the bucks he owes
