Lauryn Hill on Monday started serving a three-month prison sentence for three counts of misdemeanor tax evasion.
"The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" artist and former Fugee reported to the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Conn., a minimum-security prison where she'll live in dorm-style quarters and have a job (think food service, maintenance). After her three months are up, she'll spend three months in home confinement as part of a year on parole.
Hill was sentenced in May after pleading guilty last summer, admitting at the time that she intentionally failed to file tax returns in 2005, 2006 and 2007. She repaid about a million bucks in back taxes owed, making her final payment right before sentencing in May.
