Lauryn Hill Sentenced To Federal Prison Time

Posted on May 6th, 2013 at 2:46 pm


Singer Lauryn Hill is headed to federal prison.

The Grammy winner was sentenced in federal court to three months in prison for failing to pay taxes on about $1 million in earnings.  She pleaded guilty in the case back in 2012 but received her sentence in a New Jersey courtroom Monday.

It's not clear when the former Fugees member will report to prison.  Once she does complete her stint in a federal facility she will still be required to do an additional three months of home confinement.

Her attorney Nathan Hochman had been arguing for probation for Hill.  The 37-year-old mother of six could have faced up to three years in prison.

      Hill gets 3 months so I guess she should be happy but Lindsey Lohan is free. Go figure
