Abby Lee Miller, of the Lifetime hit show “Dance Moms,” has been indicted on charges of bankruptcy fraud, United States Attorney David J. Hickton of the Western District of Pennsylvania said in a statement.
The 20-count indictment includes charges related to concealment of bankruptcy assets and false bankruptcy declarations. Miller faces up to five years in prison and up to $5 million in fines, since each count carries a possible $250,000 fine, according to Fox News.
Miller filed a Petition to “Reorganize” her dance studio in December 2010. The indictment states that the reality star hid her income between 2012 and 2013 from her show as well as her spin-off TV shows, including masterclass dance sessions and merchandise sales.
According to the indictment, Miller allegedly created bank accounts to hide her income and made multiple false declarations in monthly operating reports. It states $755,492.85 as the total amount of income she hid.
