Last Thursday (Apr. 24), Snipes was sentenced to three years in prison for tax evasion.
Tom Miller runs a consulting business called Dr. Prison, which coaches people who are about to serve prison sentences on how to behave behind bars, and he has a few tips for the prison-bound Blade actor.
Since Snipes will be such a high-profile prisoner, Miller says the key is for him to remain humble while locked up, and ditch any diva attitude he may possess.
He explains, He needs to serve his time with humility and not act like hes better than anyone just because hes a celebrity. He cant talk down to people or hell get hurt in there.
Miller believes Snipes star status may help him in the slammer with his fellow prisoners, but he shouldnt let his cell celebrity go to his head.
He suggests Snipes refrain from signing autographs behind bars because itll put him above the other prisoners.
To avoid a beat down, Snipes should keep to himself as much as possible and only talk to the powerful prison shot- callers if they talk to him first.
