Abby Lee Miller talks about her fear of going to prison as her surrender date draws nearer. In a favorable turn of events though, the former "Dance Moms" host gets another 13 days of freedom as her first day in jail is pushed back in July.
In an exclusive of with Abby Lee Miller by ET, it was learned that her surrender date was moved from June 30 to July 12. The reason for the delay remains unknown as of late, but it turns out to be a fortunate event for the former "Dance Moms" star.
Days before Miller supposedly checks into prison, she once again talked about her fears on how her life behind the bars could go. In the past months, she already revealed that she fears probable physical abuse and rape inside the prison. Now, apart from those fears, she recalled the case she got involved in and plays innocent as she declares she is not a criminal.
"I'm just a nice Catholic girl from Pittsburgh. ... I know that I am not a criminal mastermind," Abby Lee Miller told Extra earlier this week. "I listened to the wrong people. I trusted people," she continued.
The disgraced Lifetime reality star was charged with 20 counts of fraud in October 2015 as she allegedly attempted to hide $775,000 of income from "Dance Moms" and other projects. The 50-year-old dance guru then pled guilty to the crime in June 2016.
Last May 9, Abby Lee Miller received her final sentencing to her case. She is to serve a year and a day inside the federal prison and will have to pay a fine of $40,000 and $120,000 judgment. Furthermore, she was asked to give a DNA sample relating to her felony charge and will serve another two years of probation once she gets out of jail.
Meanwhile, reports reveal that Abby Lee Miller did a special with Lifetime featuring her preparations for prison. The interview does not include other "Dance Moms" stars and will soon be televised. Abby Lee Miller plans to continue her television career after her jail time and said she would plot a new series during her stay behind the bars.
