Editorial: Quarter Life Crisis
Hill, Grammy Award winning artist and mother of six, is serving a three month sentence for failure to pay over $1M in taxes. According to Rolling Stone,
Hill pled guilty to tax evasion charges in June 2012 for $1.8 million in earnings from 2005-2007. Her sentencing also took into account unpaid state and federal taxes in 2008 and 2009, which brought the total owed to roughly $2.3 million.
Hill is being housed in a minimum security facility, among general population, and under a “dorm-style” living condition. After Hill is released, she will remain on probation for one year and will serve the first three of those months on house arrest.
