Lauryn Hill allowed to tour before sentence ends
NEWARK, New Jersey (AP) - Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill is being allowed to participate in a concert tour before completing her sentence in a tax case, her lawyer said Tuesday.
Attorney Nathan Hochman said Hill was permitted to work during the last six weeks of this year before finishing the balance of her three-month home detention.
Hill pleaded guilty last year to failing to pay taxes on more than US$1.8 million (S$2.25 million) earned from 2005 to 2007.
The former member of the Fugees was sentenced in July to three months in prison and three months of home detention as part of a year of court-ordered supervised release. She lives in South Orange, New Jersey, and was sentenced in federal court in Newark.
