Abby Lee Miller pleads not guilty to bankruptcy fraud

Last month, Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller was indicted on 20 counts of bankruptcy fraud, after alleging that Miller had hidden over $700K in income from her shows, all while she was claiming chapter 11. But if you know anything about Abby Lee Miller, then you already know the outspoken star was not about to sit back and take that one quietly. And she didn’t. Instead, Miller had her day in court yesterday, where she pled not guilty. Now there’s a shocker.

Miller appeared in court yesterday, where she pled not guilty to the charges, and she was let go on $10K bond, but it’s far from over for the reality star. In fact, if she is eventually found guilty, Miller faces up to 5 years in the slammer, and a fine o $250K per count. Ouch, let’s see how she will weasel her way out of this one!

Abby Lee Miller had her day in court yesterday, where the Dance Moms star pled not guilty to the 20 counts of bankruptcy fraud she was recently indicted on. Miller reportedly requested a trial by jury, and though it has yet to be scheduled, Miller’s attorney told the judge to expect it to last at least 2 weeks. If convicted, Miller faces jail time and a whopping $250K per count, yikes.

The investigation, which took place from 2012-2013 began when Miller was spotted on television by a bankruptcy judge. After being investigated by the FBI, it was determined that Miller, “hid more than $228,000 in income from appearances on “Dance Moms” and a spin-off, “Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition” and nearly $550,000 more from personal appearances, dance sessions and merchandise sold through her website, www.abbyleedancecompany.com,” The Associated Press reports.

When a local reporter asked Miller to comment, she avoided all the questions, simply replying, “I didn’t have my hair done. Season 6 jackets are on sale on the website on Wednesday.” Wow, can you say denial. Moral of the story kids, don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.
