Dance Moms' former leading lady, Abby Lee Miller, has been formally sentenced to 12 months and one day incarceration for 20 different cases of fraud believed to region in the amount of $775,000 United States dollars (£600,000 approximately).
The 50 year old dance coach who has made a career out of shouting at young children on television has furthermore admitted to taking £100,000 worth of Australian dollars into the United States without clearing it with the authorities.
According to reports, Miller groveled at the judge for mercy during her trial prior sentencing.
When she is released this won't be the end of her serving time, Chief Judge Joy Flowers Conti informed a reportedly sobbing defendant that she'll have an additional 2 year supervised order.
Abby has also been ordered to pay two fines to the United States government. One costing $40,000 (£31,000) and the other, $120,000 (£93,000).
In December 2010, Miller filed for bankruptcy and owed more than $400,000 (£310,000) in taxes. It is believed this amount has increased over the years.
It is unclear if the Television Network, Lifetime, will recommission Dance Moms for another season, but Abby Lee Miller will be dealing with a lifetime of checking her accounts after this for sure.
Anyway, I'm off to watch Orange Is The New Black.
