Abby Lee Miller reportedly released from prison

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 03/27/2018 

Abby Lee Miller is reportedly no longer behind bars.

The former Dance Moms star has been released from the Victorville Federal Correctional Institution in California after about eight months in prison, People reported.

Abby has been transferred to the Residential Reentry Center in Long Beach, which is a halfway house that provides a supervised and regimented environment where she'll receive employment counseling and financial management assistance, as well as potential job placement, according to TMZ.

The 51-year-old dance instructor and studio owner is reportedly scheduled to be released from the halfway house on May 25.

Abby was sentenced in May 2017 and began serving her 366-day prison sentence for bankruptcy fraud in July 2017. The original year-long sentence was supposed to be followed by two years supervised release, according to People.

Abby had pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud in Pittsburgh, PA, in June 2016. In addition to serving time, Abby had been fined $40,000 and was told to pay the $120,000 judgement.

Abby was indicted in 2015 on 20 counts of bankruptcy fraud, false bankruptcy declarations and concealment of bankruptcy assets once the FBI, IRS, and postal inspectors conducted an investigation.

Abby -- who filed for bankruptcy in 2010 -- allegedly hid more than $775,000 in secret bank accounts between 2012 to 2013, when she was getting paid for multiple projects, including starring on Lifetime's Dance Moms and its spinoff Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition.

Abby was also reportedly accused of not reporting $120,000 in foreign currency that she brought from Australia into the United States with the help of friends in August 2014.

She had a lot of fears about entering prison, as she told the magazine in April 2017, "I'm afraid of being physically abused or raped. I have to stay busy. If I thought about it every day, I'd just sit around and cry."

Abby, however, has seemingly made great use of her time while behind bars. In December, she announced she had passed two classes in real estate and personal finance.

And in late January, Entertainment Tonight reported Abby lost about 100 pounds after undergoing gastric bypass surgery in April 2017 before surrendering herself to the Victorville Federal Correctional Institution. Abby shared an Instagram photo of herself in a prison uniform with visitors at the time showing off her drastic weight loss.

"Sometimes in life you make mistakes. I trusted the wrong people and didn't pay any attention to things I should of. I'm more than sorry for the mistakes I have made," Abby captioned the image.

"My world flipped upside down when I had to enter prison. I did so with grace, the stories you read about me been a princess are untrue. I have made friends with both inmates and staff, I've tried to better myself, participated in anything offered to me and I am a better person for this experience."

Abby added that she was "feeling hopeful" about getting out of prison, although she didn't have a confirmed date.

"I am feeling great and ready to turn over a new leaf thank you so much to everyone for your support especially my nearest and dearest I love you all. #abbyleemiller #abbylee #dancemoms #dance #aldc," she wrote.
