Maybe he should have stayed in Namibia, where he was filming a movie when his indictment was announced. (I recall the story saying then thatit has no extradition treaty with the US). But seriously, this part of what the government said I think is unfair:

"In the defendant Wesley Snipes, the court is presented with a wealthy, famous and inveterate tax scofflaw. If ever a tax offender was deserving of being held accountable to the maximum extent for his criminal wrongdoing, Snipes is that defendant," it says.

Look, I have no sympathy for rich ppl who openly cheat like this, but they were saying "Hey, let's make an example out of him". I consider that fundamentally unfair to anybody.
