Lauryn Hill pled guilty to tax evasion last year, but she was sentenced today to three months of jail time in a federal prison. After completing the three months behind bars, she will then three months on hour arrest and then another nine months of 'supervised release'.

According to reports, Hill spoke to the court before the sentencing and apparently said, "I needed to be able to earn so I could pay my taxes, without compromising the health and welfare of my children, and I was being denied that.”
 
Hill, who is a Grammy award-winning singer and worth millions of dollars, didn't pay taxes for the years 2005, 2006, and 2007. She faced a maximum of three years in jail, but her defense managed to bring it down to only three months. Hill owed a total of $1 million in unpaid taxes, but she claims she's paid almost all of that to the government already.

Hill's defense team also tried to argue on her behalf, and used the examples of Hill's extensive charity work and her 6 children to try to gain some leniency from the judge. While reports claim that the judge didn't buy it, a three month sentence is infinitely better than three years. Hill most recently performed at the Coachella music festival, but from the looks of the situation, she won't be doing a concert for a long time.
