Dance Moms Star Abby Lee Miller is Going to Prison For Fraud

I’ve never been a fan of the absolutely insane and profitable world that is dance.  And I’m not talking about Broadway or professional dance troupes.  You know exactly what I’m talking about.  I’m talking about the humongous dance industry that’s out there exploiting every little and teenage girl they can get their hands on.  Thousands and thousands of dance studios around the country make families pay an arm and a leg to send their girls (and boys) to their classes.  They put on this massive recital at the end of the year (that you have to buy expensive tickets for and usually miss your Memorial Day) and most of the times the girls don’t wind up doing anything professional.

Do I think it’s a solid peer to peer thing?  Yes.  Can it get young girls into dance programs in college?  Yup.  I think the good, clean, and solid programs are actually solid community builders but for all the good ones there are a bunch of crappy outlets that just want your money.

I’m not saying Abby Lee Miller is one of the good or bad ones.  But I will say she was definitely out for money and now she’s gonna pay for it.   According to Variety

Abby Lee Miller, the star of the Lifetime show “Dance Moms,” has been sentenced to one year and one day in jail for bankruptcy fraud and money laundering. Miller plead guilty to both charges last year. A federal judge in Pittsburgh made the ruling Tuesday, ordering the reality TV star to pay a $40,000 fine,a $120,000 judgment, and spend two years on probation after her release.

Prosecutors said Miller tried to cheat her creditors by hiding $775,000 of income in secret bank accounts while her dance studio – which was featured on the show – filed for bankruptcy. Prosecutors also claim Miller brought in $120,000 worth of Australian currency into the U.S. without reporting it.

The story is still developing so we’ll keep you posted.
