Lauryn Hill arrived at a New Jersey court today for her tax evasion case.
She pled guilty to three counts of failure to file taxes between the years of 2005 and 2007 despite earning an income of more than $1.8 million.
When the judge asked Lauryn if she intentionally and willingly failed to file the tax returns, she replied "yes."
In addition to the three years of prison time, Lauryn could face a fine of $75,000. She has been released on $150,000 bail and is due to return to court for sentencing in November.
Soon after news broke that she has failed to pay the IRS, Lauryn wrote an open letter to her fans promising to rectify the problem.
Lauryn claimed she only avoided paying her taxes for her family's safety
