Lauryn Hill freed from Federal Prison in tax case

DANBURY, Conn. (AP) - She may be out of prison. But Lauryn Hill isn't completely free from her federal sentence for failing to pay her taxes. The singer is spending three months under home confinement after doing her three-month stint at a federal facility in Danbury, Connecticut. Her lawyer says Hill got out of jail a few days early because of good behavior. Aside from the three months of home confinement, Hill will be on a one-year probation period. Hill pleaded guilty last year in New Jersey to failing to pay taxes on more than $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007. Her sentence also took into account unpaid state and federal taxes in 2008 and 2009 that brought the total earnings to about $2.3 million. Hill claims she stopped paying taxes after she dropped out of the music business to protect herself and her six kids.
