The decision comes about even after apparently paying more than $970,000 to state and federal tax liabilities which was stated by her attorney. According to the judge two weeks ago, Hill has only paid $50,000. However, it would appear that whatever the actual amount may be it wasn’t enough to keep her out of prison.
The former Fugee artist explained to the judge that her prolonged absence from the music industry prevented her from paying what was owed in full but that her time away was necessary in order to properly raise her six children. Following her time three month sentence, Hill will also have to serve out an additional three months in home confinement. The Grammy-winning artist must turn her self in by July 8 to authorities.
