Lauryn Hill Tax

Lauryn Hill plead guilty to a huge federal crime today and now she could face three years in prison! Her poor kids!

Lauryn Hill went to court today and plead guilty to three counts of failing to file federal income tax returns between 2005-2007.

TMZ reports that Lauryn’s judge asked her if she “intentionally and willingly” failed to file her returns for 2005, 2006, and 2007 and she said “Yes.”

Lauryn earned over $1.8 million in those years.

The Fugees singer was released after paying $150,000 bail and her sentencing date was set for November. She is facing three years in prison and could get up to $75,000 in fines.

Lauryn has six children, the youngest of whom turns one in July. It would be so sad for her kids to live without her mom, but we’ll see what type of jail time Lauryn will be sentenced to come November.
