Lauryn Hill Must Come Up With Half A Million In Two Weeks To Avoid Jail

(AllHipHop News) Lauryn Hill has had her trials and tribulations, but one of the biggest may be upon her.

Her sentencing on tax evasion charges was supposed to be today, but her fate was suspended. A judged postponed her case for two weeks, apparently to allow her to make the money in back taxes.

Ms. Hill owes the government $504,000 in back unpaid taxes and has paid $50,000 thus far. She faces up to 30 months in prison and has admitted guilt in the case.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo seemed annoyed of the effort Hill has mad so far.

“This is not someone who stands before the court penniless,” Arleo said in a report to Yahoo.com. “This is a criminal matter. Actions speak louder than words, and there has been no effort here to pay these taxes.”

Her lawyer said that the singer/rapper would be able to pay.

“I fully expect that by May 3 Ms. Hill will be able to pay back all the restitution she has,” Nathan Hochman said.

Hill is now slated for a May 6 day in court.
