'Dance Moms' star Abby Lee Miller reporting to prison
UPI News Service, 07/12/2017
Former "Dance Moms" star Abby Lee Miller is reporting to federal prison on Wednesday to begin her 366 day sentence.
Miller will be entering into a prison located in Victorville, Calif., which is an hour away from her home in San Bernardino, reports Pittsburgh's Action News.
The television star was sentenced to prison in May after she pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud in June 2016.
The 50-year-old was indicted in October 2015 on 20 counts of fraud, including concealment of bankruptcy assets and false bankruptcy declarations.
After completing her sentence, Miller will spend two years on probation. A judge also sentenced Miller to pay a fine of $40,000.
Miller discussed her upcoming imprisonment on Saturday while speaking with Entertainment Tonight during a red carpet event in Los Angeles.
"I'll just have me to concentrate on and that's different," she said.
"I've always put everybody else's child first before my own health, before my own outfit, before my own time frame. Everybody else was dressed and out the door and looking perfect and I was running around trying to find a clean towel to take a shower with, so I think this will be a little 'me' time."
