Abby Lee Miller on Possible Jail Time: Dance Moms Fame Is To Blame!

by at .

Abby Lee Miller is not going down without a fight. 

The 50-year-old star of Dance Moms star has allegedly been trying to find a way out of spending any time in jail for fraud charges. 

With the day of Abby's sentencing drawing ever so near, Radar has lifted the lid on some "exclusive documents" that imply that Miller is was not to blame for the charges.

In fact, they state that the Abby's fame from starring in the Lifetime hit played a huge part in the charges. 

Apparently, Abby is holding out hope for a "non-custodial sentence" that would allow her to dodge jail in exchange for probation, community service and/ or a fine. 

The documents seem to paint Abby in a very different light from what we've watched on the show. 

“In 1980, at just 14 years old, Ms. Miller founded the Abby Lee Dance Company,” the sentencing memorandum read.

“Through her loving, yet demanding approach, Ms. Miller brings out the best in her students. She instills in her pupils the dedication and discipline necessary to achieve great success.”

If you watch Dance Moms online, you probably already know that Abby can be very rude to the kids at the ALDC if they do not do exactly what she wants them to. 

The document even goes as far as saying that Abby was just simply too busy trying to keep on top of everything to make sure that everything was right with the ALDC. 

“At the time, Ms. Miller had no accounting experience,” the court papers read.

“She was unfamiliar with the books and records of the dance business, and she had no understanding of the studio’s fiscal practices.”

"The tax sale was prompted by the fact that property taxes were not being escrowed by the bank that held a mortgage on the studio,” the filing read.

“In order to stave off the tax sale… Attorney Calaiaro counseled Ms. Miller to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, which she did on December 3, 2010.”

Basically, the filing seems to imply that Abby was not up to scratch on the accounting side of things and that she should skip jail for that reason.

That's not how it works, Abby!  

She did, however, agree that she should have been more forward about the international monetary transaction. 

“Ms. Miller gained nothing from her exercise in poor judgment,” the filing read.

“She placed herself and colleagues at risk for little or no obvious advantage. Her conduct was motivated by neither greed nor ill will. It was a foolish decision to skirt the law and she has accepted a felony conviction as the wages of her frivolity.”

There's no denying that the filing covered all bases in an attempt to have Miller skip jail time, but we'll need to wait until next week to find out whether she will be sent to prison. 

What do you think about all of this?
