Posted on Aug. 17, 2012

Lauryn Hill plead guilty earlier this summer to three counts of tax evasion. The income in question, totaling $1.8 million, was earned by four corporations Hill owned. She faces a maximum one-year sentence for each count, but sentencing has been delayed to the fall to permit Hill time to make a payment. 

U.S. v. Hill, U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, Case No. 12-6081.
