‘Dance Moms’ Abby Lee Miller set for early prison release

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Former “Dance Moms” reality TV star Abby Lee Miller is set to be released from prison early.

WTAE-TV <a target=”&mdash;blank” href=”http://www.wtae.com/article/shelter-dogs-benefit-from-masseur-in-training/19482737″>reports</a> Miller was originally scheduled for release June 21, but online records now list her release date as May 25. Miller has been in a California prison since turning herself in this past July.

Miller was sentenced to a year and a day in prison for hiding $775,500 worth of income and bringing $120,000 in Australian currency to the U.S. without reporting it.

The 51-year-old had filed for bankruptcy after defaulting on a Florida condominium mortgage and a mortgage on her Abby Lee Dance Company studio in Penn Hills, a Pittsburgh suburb.

Her lawyer argued Miller had become “ill-equipped to deal with the brand she became.”
