Things are not looking good for Abby Lee Miller.
The Dance Moms star is reportedly preparing herself for the possibility of jail time over charges of fraud and violating currency reporting laws.
According to WHO, Assistant U.S Attorney Gregory Melucci called witness during a two-day sentencing hearing last week and demanded the choreographer serve up to two and a half years behind bars.
Miller pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud in June last year after attempting to hide $775,00 of income in secret bank accounts that she'd recieved from her Lifetime series and it’s spinoff, Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition.
The star has also admitted to failing to report $120,000 Australian that she illegally brought back into the US. She's been accused of separating the money into separate plastic bags and having friends carry them in their luggage, but has since agreed to forfeit the funds.
“Throughout this case, Ms. Miller has taken both the allegations and the proceedings very seriously,” Abby’s attorney Robert Ridge previously told WHO in a statement.
“This has been a challenging time for Ms. Miller. She appreciates the words of encouragement and support from around the world.”
Miller’s witnesses will take the stand when her hearing continues on Feb. 24. Her sentence will also be handed down that day.
