The Prison Education of Lauryn Hill
July 8 is the day Lauryn Hill must report to prison unless her attorney files an appeal. This stems from Hill pleading guilty last year to failing to file her tax returns on more than$1.8 million in taxes.
Her sentence includes three months in federal prison, one year of probation and three months of home confinement, followed by nine months of supervised release. It is still unclear where she will serve her time.
Hill also made headlines comparing her jail situation to slavery, when she said, "I sold 50 million units ... now I'm up here paying a tax debt. If that's not likened to slavery, I don't know what is."
