Lauryn Hill Pleads Guilty In Tax Evasion Facing Jail Time


Lauryn Hill just pleaded guilty to tax evasion and could spend some time behind bars. Hill admitted that she intentionally failed to file several tax returns in the past decade, and now the former Fugees front woman faces 3 years in prison. Hill plead guilty today to three counts of failure to file tax returns for the years 2005, 2006, and 2007 — when she earned more than $1.8 million.

When the judge asked if Hill “intentionally and willingly” failed to file the returns, she replied, “Yes.” In addition to the 3 years behind bars, Hill could be smacked with $75,000 in fines. Hill was released on $150,000 bail. Her sentencing hearing is set for November.
