Eight-time Grammy-winner Lauryn Hill pleaded guilty in the summer of 2012 to not paying federal taxes on more than $1.5 million earned over three years. She was eventually sentenced to three months in prison and served all but a few days of her sentence, being released for good behavior on October 4, 2013. She also had to pay $970,000 in back taxes and penalties and spend another three months in home confinement.
