ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Eddie Ray Kahn, the Sorrento, Fla., man who served as actor Wesley Snipes' tax adviser, reportedly has been named in a 12-count federal indictment.

Best known for his roles in the "Blade" trilogy, "The Fan," "Demolition Man," "Jungle Fever" and "White Men Can't Jump," Snipes was sentenced in April to three years in prison for failing to file multiple income-tax returns. However, he has been allowed to remain free while his legal team appeals his case.

Kahn -- founder of the former American Rights Litigators and the Guiding Light of God Ministries -- was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison in April for his role in an alleged tax conspiracy that included Snipes.

The Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported Friday that Kahn has also been named in a 12-count federal indictment, in which he is accused of conspiracy to defraud the United States and commit mail fraud.

The charges stem from Kahn's alleged role in promoting tax-fraud schemes, the Sentinel said.
