Lauryn Hill Heads to prison- to start sentence over Tax evasion..

Former Fugees member Lauryn Hill is said to have submitted herself to the federal prison in Connecticut, where she will start her three months sentence for tax evasion.

Lauryn was booked into the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Danbury.

According to TMZ,  FCI is a “minimum security type facility” where inmates live in “barracks type” housing.

The 38-year-old singer will not be isolated in the facility — and will be housed with the general population

The BBC also reports that the singer had reported to a minimum security prison in Danbury.

After release, Hill will be under parole supervision for a year, with the first three months to be spent confined to her home.

The singer will be housed with the general population at the Federal Correctional Institution of Danbury, where prisoners live in open dormitory-style living quarters and are expected to work in jobs such as maintenance, food service or landscaping.

After pleading guilty last year, Hill's lawyer had sought probation for the singer, arguing her charitable works, family circumstances and the fact that she later paid back the taxes she owed, should merit consideration.

During her sentencing, Hill said she had intended to pay the taxes but could not after withdrawing from public life and ending her music career to raise her children.
