Lauryn Hill Went to Jail Today

Signer Lauryn Hill is seen leaving court after the judge postpones her sentencing and gave her two weeks to pay back taxes April 22, 2013 in Newark, New Jersey.  Hill pleaded guilty to tax evasion charges in June 2012 for failure to pay federal taxes on USD 1.8 million earned from 2005-2007. She faces a maximum one-year jail sentence for each of the three accounts.

As expected, Hill reported to the Federal Correction Facility in Danbury, Connecticut, this morning to begin her much-contested sentence for tax evasion. According to TMZ, she is in a "minimum security type facility" and will be housed with the rest of the inmates. She'll serve three months.
