Celebrity News: Singer Lauryn Hill sentenced to prison on tax charges

Like Hollywood celebrity, Wesley Snipes, Lauryn Hill must spend a few months in prison.  Many of us whom enjoyed her music back in the day never thought we would hear of going to prison for alleged tax invasion.  However, in life there are a turn of events that shock us all and this is one of them.  Lauryn Hill will be in jail for three years.

According to, "Although Hill pleaded guilty to charges specifically related to those tax years, her sentence also takes into account additional income and tax losses for 2008 and 2009 -- when she also failed to file federal returns -- along with her outstanding tax liability to the state of New Jersey, for a total income of approximately $2.3 million and total tax loss of approximately $1,006,517," the prosecutor said.

In the meantime, we will keep Lauryn Hill in our prayers.
