Dance Moms’ Abby Lee Miller Could Be Facing Jail Time
Abby Miller could be dancing in jail soon. This week, the Dance Moms star pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud, after being accused of attempting to hide income from her reality show.
In October, Miller was charged with attempting to hide $775,000 worth of income from Dance Moms, the spinoff Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition during Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings. She also was accused of having friends hiding money in their luggage.
“Throughout this case, Ms. Miller has taken both the allegations and the proceedings very seriously,” her attorney Robert Ridge tells PEOPLE in a statement. “This has been a challenging time for Ms. Miller. She appreciates the words of encouragement and support from around the world.”
Miller is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 11.
