Lauryn Hill Pleads Guilty To Tax-Evasion Charges, Facing Prison Time

Submitted by on July 1, 2012 – 7:44 pmNo Comment

As I previously told you, Lauryn Hill is in hot water for failing to pay taxes for 2005, 2006, and 2007. Earlier this month, federal prosecutors charged the former Fugees frontwoman with willfully failing to file income tax returns with the IRS. On Friday (June 29), Lauryn shocked fans by pleading guilty to the charges and admitting she purposefully failed to file multiple tax returns over the last several years. The “Lost Ones” singer could be punished with a 3 year prison term when she goes before the court again for sentencing. According to TMZ:

“Hill pled 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.”

A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for November.

Am I the only one who sees the crazy in this situation? Lauryn, you’re a celebrity…you’re suppose to blame your accountant, business manager, financial adviser, or whoever else helps you manage your money and keep it moving!!
