Miller was charged in an indictment with 20 counts of fraud and the currency violation.

Her attorneys are asking for a maximum of six months in jail. She will be sentenced Oct. 11, Deadline reported.

Miller, who filed for bankruptcy in 2010, had faced up to five years in prison on the initial charges in the $5 million fraud case, but made a plea deal with federal prosecutors earlier this month.

She pleaded guilty Monday to one count of concealing bankruptcy assets and one count of failing to report an international money transaction.

During evidence in court, a text was revealed in which Miller wrote "We have all this foreign cash. Need a little money laundering."

She reportedly directed her employees to sneak more than $120,000 into this country from Australia. They money was placed in their luggage in resealable plastic bags.

Judge Terrence McVerry, in the Pittsburgh courtroom, said if Miller is convicted of the charges, she could face fines of up to $500,000, "Entertainment Tonight" reported.

"Throughout this case, Ms. Miller has taken both the allegations and the proceedings very seriously," attorney Robert Ridge says in statement.

"This has been a challenging time for Ms. Miller. She appreciates the words of encouragement and support from around the world."
