Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill reported to federal prison in Connecticut on Monday to begin a three-month sentence for tax evasion.

The former Fugees singer was booked at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, a “minimum security type facility” where inmates live in “barracks type” housing, TMZ reported. Inmates are expected to work jobs such as maintenance, food service or landscaping, The Associated Press said.

Miss Hill will be housed with the general population during her stint. She will be under parole supervision for a year after she is released, and the first three months of her parole will be spent under house arrest, AP reported.

The 38-year-old R&B singer pleaded guilty last year in New Jersey to three counts of tax evasion for failing to file returns on $1.8 million she earned from 2005 to 2007, TMZ reported.
