Abby Lee Miller Sentenced to One Year in Prison for Bankruptcy Fraud
The only place Abby Lee Miller will be dancing in these days is behind bars.
The Dance Moms alum has been sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison for bankruptcy fraud. In addition to paying a $40,000 fine and $120,000 judgement, Miller must also provide a DNA sample relating to her felony charge and will be supervised for two years following her release.
In 2015, the 50-year-old was charged with attempting to hide $775,000 of income earned from her Lifetime series and dance classes during Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings. She also allegedly concealed her money in secret bank accounts.
Earlier this year, Miller announced she was leaving Dance Moms after seven seasons, accusing male producers of mistreatment.
“I don’t have a problem working with any kid, I love children and have dedicated my life to making other people’s children successful!” she wrote on her Instagram in March. “I JUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BEING MANIPULATED, DISRESPECTED, AND USED – DAY IN AND DAY OUT BY MEN WHO NEVER TOOK A DANCE LESSON IN THEIR LIVES AND TREAT WOMEN LIKE DIRT!”
