'Dance Moms’ Star Abby Lee Miller Indicted
Abby Lee Miller, one of the stars of the Lifetime show "Dance Moms," has been indicted for bankruptcy fraud, concealment of bankruptcy assets, and false bankruptcy declarations.

United States Attorney David J. Hickton of the Western District of Pennsylvania announced the news in a statement: "Criminal prosecution is appropriate when debtors corrupt the bankruptcy process through deceit and lies before the court."

From the charges, Miller could face up to five years in prison and up to $5 million in fines.

The indictment stated that Miller hid around $755,000 after filing for bankruptcy in 2010. She allegedly concealed the income that she earned from "Dance Moms" and other spin-offs between 2012 and 2013 by creating multiple bank accounts and making false declarations in her monthly operating reports.

Miller emerged from bankruptcy last year.
