She was supposed to get released early on February 20, but that did not end up happening and now there’s no word on when she will be back in the dance studio screaming at her students.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Jennifer Myers, a prison consultant and coach (this is a job?) explained why Abby’s early release has been delayed and it actually has nothing to do with Abby herself. It’s all about the prison protocols. Basically what happened is they promised more people that they can go to a halfway house than they actually had room for.
The prison consultant said, “Abby got her official out date, it was Feb. 20. She received that piece of paper that told her that and that she would be going to the halfway house in Van Nuys. You have to make those plans in advance. But clearly, the prison went over budget so she could no longer be released.”
Apparently Abby didn’t get any warning about the change in plans and she just found out about it when it didn’t happen. Apparently, “It was a pretty upsetting thing for her over the weekend to not be able to talk to anybody and find out what was happening. It didn’t make any sense. She had her halfway house plan and they just weren’t communicating with her that it wasn’t happening anymore.”
It is likely that Abby will still get an early release, but it’s unclear when that will happen.
