Abby Lee Miller may be going to prison.
But she isn’t going quietly.
The former Dance Moms host was sentenced to a year in prison on Tuesday, just under a year since she pleaded guilty to hiding $755,000 from the government as part of a bankruptcy scheme.
As indicated by different sources, Miller stood firm at her sentencing hearing and separated in tears while attempting to persuade a judge to relax on her.
She blamed her sudden rise to fame for her poor decision-making and said she had already learned some hard lessons, but the judge wasn’t overly sympathetic.
“You weren’t truthful, even when you knew you were supposed to tell everything, you still weren’t truthful,” she told Miller, adding:
“Somehow you got caught up in the world of fame and you lost your moral compass.”
As a result, Miller will be forced to pay a fine of $40,000; spend the aforementioned year behind bars; and then remain on supervised release for two years afterward.
It could have been worse, however:
She could have been sentenced to FIVE years in jail and been forced to pay $5 million in fines.
Soon after her destiny was uncovered in court, Miller addressed Entertainment Tonight and different news outlets in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
