NEWARK, N.J. (October 8,2013)—Lauryn Hill will be permitted to work during the last six weeks of the year before she finishes the balance of a three-month home detention sentence on a tax conviction, her attorney, Nathan Hochman, said.
Hill pleaded guilty last year to failing to pay taxes on more than $1.5 million earned from 2005 to 2007.
In July Hill, the winner of multiple Grammys and former member of the Fugees, was sentenced to three months in prison and three months of home detention.
She lives in South Orange, N.J.
Hill was released Oct. 4 from a federal facility in Danbury, Conn.
