“Dance Moms” Abby Lee Miller has fallen from the top.
E! News has confirmed the reality tv star has pleaded guilty on Monday to charges of concealing bankruptcy assets.
Miller also pleaded guilty for one count of failing to report an international monetary transaction.
Miller could have been looking at a $5 million fine and five years in prison on her initial bankruptcy fraud charges in 2015.
Since then, Miller’s lawyers have been working with the court to come up with some sort of plea deal.
Miller’s attorneys are now asking for a max of six months in jail.
Miller will be officially sentenced on October 11.
Deadline spoke to Miller’s lawyers about the case and in a statement said,
“Sentencing in this case will occur after the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit resolves United States v. Free, a similar case addressing the issue of sentencing in a ‘zero loss’ bankruptcy,” said Miller’s attorneys in a statement obtained by Deadline.
“Throughout this case, Miss Miller has taken both the allegations and the proceedings very seriously. This has been a challenging time for Miss Miller. She appreciates the words of encouragement and support from around the world.”
Miller also released her own statement today via Gossip Cop, saying,
“Events over the past several months have been extremely challenging for me, my family, my friends and most important, my students. Because of this I made the very difficult decision to close the door on this chapter of my life by accepting responsibility for mistakes I have made along the way.”
This is kinda sad, but obviously self inflicted.
Sorry Abby, but this has to be your karma for pushing young girls to always be better then everyone else when they are ages 12 and under.
“Dance Moms” started in 2011, and the sixth seasons started earlier this year.
