As previously reported, The Abby Lee Dance Company owner was sentenced in May for bankruptcy fraud and bringing $120,00 worth of Australian currency into the United States without reporting it. She was also ordered to two years of supervised release and fined $40,000 along with a $120,000 judgment.
Miller began serving her time at the Victorville, California, federal prison in July. Us exclusively revealed earlier this month what is on the wide-ranging menu of foods for the inmates to choose from each day. For example, options for lunch on Sundays include scrambled eggs or peanut butter, oven-roasted potatoes, gravy, two biscuits or whole wheat bread, jelly and margarine pats and a fruit. For dinner, intimates can choose from roast beef, black-eyed peas, steamed rice, green beans, gravy and whole wheat bread.
Miller spoke to Us exclusively in May about not being prepared for her prison sentence.
“It’s surreal! I keep thinking someone’s gonna call and say, ‘Oh, it was a mistake!’” she said at the time. “I’m not out taking karate. I’m not in a self-defense class, though, maybe I should be.”
