Grammy-award winning singer Lauryn Hill was on Monday sentenced to three months in prison for failing to pay taxes on nearly $1 million in earnings. The New York Daily News is reporting that she was sentenced to an additional three months of home confinement. From the AP: During a forceful 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. Before the sentencing, her attorney had said Hill had paid more than $970,000 to satisfy the state and federal tax liabilities. Hill had faced a maximum sentence of one year each on three counts. Her attorney had sought probation. It was not immediately clear when she would begin serving time.
