Probably no jail time, but a hefty fine is in store for Lauryn. Gawker:
Lauryn Hill pleaded guilty today to tax evasion on over $1.5 million she earned between 2005 to 2007.
The Fugees front woman appeared today before a judge at the U.S. District Court in Newark, along with her attorney Nathan Hockman. Asked if she had “intentionally and willingly” neglected to pay her taxes, Hill responded “yes.”
Sentencing will take place in late November, and the singer faces up to three years in prison — one year per count — and as much as $75,000 in fines.
