Lauryn Hill was Afraid to Pay Taxes

TMZ reports that documents in Lauryn Hill’s tax trial reportedly reveal that threats against her and her family caused the MisEducated Starlet to go further into recluse, and miss three years of filing income taxes. Lauryn filed legal documents asking for mercy before her sentencing later this month; she claims that she failed to file tax returns for 2005, 2006, and 2007 due to FEAR even though she earned more than $1.8 million. She has pled guilty and faces several years in prison.
According to court documents…. Lauryn stopped paying taxes
“when she  withdrew from society at large due to what she perceived as manipulation and  very real threats to herself and her family.”
Lauryn previously  claimed she went underground to get back in touch with her musical  roots.
Lauryn’s asking the court to consider a bunch of other factors  before her sentencing — including her claim that she can pay off the debt much  faster if she’s not behind bars.
Lauryn is begging for  probation.  Do you think the judge will be merciful or will he ship her off to jail?
