Lauryn Hill has checked into a federal prison in Connecticut to start serving her three-month sentence for tax evasion.

TMZ reports that the 38-year-old Fugees frontwoman was booked into the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury at 11:15 a.m. EST on Monday.

The FCI is described as a “minimum security type facility” where inmates live in “barracks type” housing.

Hill will not be isolated in the facility and will be housed with the general population.

She was sentenced to three months in prison for failing to pay taxes on about $1.8 million in earnings. Before the sentencing, her attorney said that she had paid more than $970,000 to satisfy the state and federal tax liabilities. She signed a new deal with Sony to help pay off some of the debt.
