Last Monday, Lauryn Hill was sentenced to three months in jail and three months of home confinement. According to 93.9 WKYS, “Hill had paid more than $970,000 to satisfy the state and federal tax liabilities” prior to her sentencing. During her statement to the Judge, “Hill explained she had always meant to eventually pay the taxes but was unable to during a period of time when she dropped out of the music business.” However, many were shocked that Hill got jail time given that she paid a substantial amount towards her tax debt. Either way, Hill still got a break because she could have gotten more jail time. Hopefully, Hill learned a valuable lesson from this experience and don’t fine herself back in the same situation.
