‘Dance Moms’ Star Abby Lee Miller Reports to Prison Wednesday
Abby Lee Miller is spending her finals days of freedom surrounded by friends. The ‘Dance Moms’ star opened up about life just four days before starting her 366 day prison sentence.
Former Dance Moms reality star Abby Lee Miller is set to check into federal prison Wednesday in Victorville, Calif., about a two-hour drive from Los Angeles.
More than a year after pleading guilty at federal court in Pittsburgh, Miller is expected to report to the FCI Victorville facility to begin serving her sentence of 366 days. In May, she was sentenced for bankruptcy fraud and bringing $120,000 worth of Australian currency into the country without reporting it.
In addition to prison time, a federal judge also ordered her to pay a $40,000 fine and spend two years on probation after her release.
In the case, prosecutors said Miller was in Chapter 11 bankruptcy when she tried to hide $775,000 worth of income from her Lifetime network reality show and its spinoffs.
The investigation began when a channel-surfing bankruptcy judge saw Miller on TV in December 2012 and figured she had to be making more than the $8,899 in monthly income she was claiming.
