In a word? Yikes!
Abby Lee Miller recently sat down with Inside Edition to discuss her life as an inmate.
The Dance Moms host has admitted in the past that she deserved to be punished for her role in a bankruptcy fraud scheme, but it would be difficult to anyone to think she deserved the sort of treatment she allegedly received while behind bars.
What does Miller claim took place at this federal facilty in California?
As she prepared to make her triumphant return to Dance Moms this June, scroll down to read experts of this troubling discussion:
Wait, Why Was Miller in Jail?
She pleaded guilty in 2016 to concealing certain assets after she filed for bankruptcy. In essence, she lied to the government about how much she was worth.
What Was Her Punishment?
Miller was sentenced to 366 days in federal prison and ended up serving about 8 months. She was released in March of 2018 and transferred to a halfway house.
Her Worst Fears Almost Came True
“I’m afraid of being physically abused or raped,” Miller told People Magazine prior to her stint. “I have to stay busy. If I thought about it every day, I’d just sit around and cry.”
She Was Not Raped, but Miller Does Claim She Was Abused
"I have already been through the ringer," she told Inside Edition in this February 2019 interview.
What Happened to Her?
"The first day was the worst day for me," she explained to Inside Edition's Chief Correspondent Jim Moret. "They tried to rip my eyelashes off that were extensions."
Whoa. That's Awful.
Miller went on to say she was tossed into solitary confinement after being erroneously accused of posting a photo of herself in prison with visitors.
