DANBURY, Conn. — Lauryn Hill’s attorney says she has been released from federal prison after serving time for failing to pay taxes.
Hill left the facility in Danbury, Conn., on Friday. Her attorney Nathan Hochman says he hasn’t had a chance to speak to his client yet.
Hill pleaded guilty last year to not paying taxes on more than $1.5 million earned from 2005 to 2007. She was sentenced in July to serve three months. Under terms of her plea agreement, she’ll spend the next three months under home confinement. She lives in South Orange, N.J.
Hill, a former member of the Fugees and winner of multiple Grammys, has said she stopped paying taxes after she dropped out of the music business to protect herself and her children, who now number six.
