Lauryn Hill Sentenced to Three Months
Despite paying her back taxes in full Lauryn Hill has been sentenced to three months in federal prison for tax evasion...
At her last court hearing Lauryn Hill was given two weeks to come up with $500,000 toward her $1.8 million tax debt for failing to file taxes in 2005, 2006 and 2007 [click here if you missed that].
According to reports Lauryn Hill cut a check to the IRS yesterday for $900,000 to settle the debt but it wasn't enough to keep her from getting locked up.
Today Lauryn Hill was sentenced to three months in jail, a $60,000 fine, one year probation and possibly three months of home confinement.
Ms. Hill must report to prison on July 8th.
