NEWARK: A US magistrate judge sentenced Grammy-winning hip hop artist Lauryn Hill to three months in prison, three months in home confinement and a $60,000 fine for tax evasion. Hill pleaded guilty last year to three counts of failing to file tax returns on more than $1.8m of income between 2005 and 2007 and faced up to three years in prison. Hill has attributed her failure to pay taxes to years of pressure she experienced as a recording star while raising six children, forcing her to go underground and stay out of the public eye.–Reuters
