Sentencing day for singer Lauryn Hill

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Eight-time Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill faces sentencing in New Jersey on tax evasion charges.

Hill pleaded guilty last June to not paying federal taxes on $1.8 million earned from 2005-2007. She faces a maximum one-year jail term on each of the three counts when she's sentenced Monday.

The South Orange resident got her start with The Fugees and began her solo career in 1998 with the critically acclaimed album "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill."

She then largely disappeared from public view to raise her six children, five of whom she had with Rohan Marley, the son of famed reggae singer Bob Marley.

Hill said in an online post that she had not paid taxes since she withdrew from society to guarantee the safety and well-being of herself and her family.
