Two years after her indictment and a long-awaited verdict, former Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller, has officially been sentenced to one year in federal prison.
The reality star was sentenced to one year and one day in prison followed by two years of supervised release on Tuesday, according to several reporters in the courtroom. She was also reportedly fined $40,000 and ordered to pay a $120,000 judgment. She has 45 days to report to prison.
“It’s a very serious situation when someone who files for bankruptcy isn’t truthful with the court,” Judge Joy Flowers Conti told the court.
Miller was charged in 2015 with 20 charges of bankruptcy fraud and false bankruptcy declarations after the FBI, IRS and postal inspectors conducted an investigation. She allegedly hid more than $755,000 in other bank accounts, which reportedly came from appearances on the show in 2012 and 2013.
While appearing in court Tuesday, she told the judge “I am very sorry for what I’ve done,” she said, according to reporters. “My name has been dragged through the mud.”
