Rap singer Lauryn Hill has been released after serving three months in prison for tax charges and will serve three months of home confinement.

The singer, who was a member of the group The Fugees before launching a solo career with her Grammy-winning 1998 album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” was sentenced in July for failing to pay taxes on more than $1.8 million in federal taxes in 2005 to 2007, plus unpaid federal and state taxes in 2008 and 2009 of about $500,000 (see Fugees Singer Lauryn Hill Sentenced to Prison for Tax Evasion).
