DANBURY, Conn., July 8 (UPI) -- Recording artist Lauryn Hill checked into the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Conn., Monday morning, officials said.

The 38-year-old former Fugees singer is serving a three-month sentence for tax evasion.

TMZ said the FCI is a minimum security facility where inmates live in barracks-type housing.

Hill pleaded guilty last year to three counts of tax evasion for failing to file returns on $1.8 million she earned from 2005 to 2007.
