Singer Lauryn Hill was sentenced to three months in prison Monday for nonpayment of $1 million in back taxes.

Hill has already paid a court-ordered $554,000 to the IRS along with additional state taxes and penalties, which led to her serving a much shorter sentence than expected.

The singer was also sentenced to one year of probation, three months of which to be spent on house arrest.

Hill’s attorney, Nathan Hochman, told E! News, ”The Court today viewed the totality of Ms. Hill’s circumstances—her incredible career, her decades of charitable works, her responsibilities to her six children, her full acceptance of responsibility for her actions, and her voluntary and full payment prior to sentencing of over $970,000 of back taxes owed—in rejecting the government’s request for a 36 month prison sentence and sentencing Ms. Hill to 3 months of prison and 1 year of probation, 3 months of which to be spent in house arrest.”

Hill is best known for her work with The Fugees, and her 1998 solo album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”.
