It seems to me that you can do almost anything you want when you’re a knob-Ed-Celeb except not pay you tax. The Fugees singer, Lauryn Hill should have known that after seeing what happened to Wesley Snipes and Ja Rule http://www.chrisspivey.co.uk/?p=10849
Mind you, far be it for me to suggest that the banking cartels, whom are the ultimate recipient of these tax dollars are racist… But there is a pattern opening up here.
Lauryn Hill sentenced to three MONTHS in prison for not paying taxes… after belatedly paying her $970,000 bill

Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill has been sentenced to three months in prison for failing to pay taxes on over well over $1million in earnings.
The Fugee-turned fugitive was also sentenced Monday in Newark to three additional months of home confinement.
The 37-year-old South Orange resident pleaded guilty last year to not paying taxes on $1.8million she earned from 2005 to 2007.

During a forceful statement to the judge, Hill explained she had always meant to eventually pay the taxes but was unable to during a period of time when she dropped out of the music business.
Before the sentencing, her attorney had said Hill had paid more than $970,000 to satisfy the state and federal tax liabilities.
That included $540,000 of unpaid taxes and various penalties on top.
Hill had faced a maximum sentence of one year each on three counts. Her attorney had sought probation.
It’s not clear when or where she’d report to prison.
Hill has a lot of mouths to feed back home. She has five children with Rohan Marley, son of Bob, and a sixth with another man.
Hill could have been sentenced to up to a year. She arrived in court with an impressive entourage
Hill claimed to the judge that she dropped out of music for several years, leaving her unable to pay up. She later re-emerged and paid off $970,000 of tax debt. This 2011 file photo shows her at Coachella
