Lauryn Hill Receives Prison Sentence for Tax Evasion
by Frank L. Brunetti on May 10, 2013
Grammy-winner Lauryn Hill will be required to serve a prison sentence for tax evasion, a court ruled this week.
In a federal court in Newark, New Jersey, U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo sentenced Hill to three months in prison for her failure to pay income taxes on more than $1.8 million in earnings between 2005 and 2007.
Hill pleaded guilty to the charges last year and has since repaid $970,000 of the amount she owed. However, she still owes both federal taxes and liabilities to the state of New Jersey. Judge Arleo also sentenced Hill to an additional three months of house arrest after her release, as well as nine months of supervision after leaving prison. The 37-year-old artist will also be required to pay a $60,000 fine.
