Ex-‘Dance Moms’ Host Abby Lee Miller Sprung From Jail Today

Abby Lee Miller’s stint in the big house for shady financial moves ended today with the former Dance Moms host getting an expected early release for good behavior, we hear.

She is being transferred to a halfway house in Long Beach. She is set to leave the halfway house on May 25 if she meets all the conditions of her stay there, a law enforcement official told Deadline.

Miller celebrated getting out of jail with a coy tweet today:

Miller started serving her year and one day sentence on July 12, 2017.

Miller was indicted on 20 counts of fraud back in October 2015. Facing a pile-up of charges and evidence and seeking a deal that was not going to be, Miller entered a guilty plea on June 27, 2016.

This whole sordid affair, which among other things saw Collins Avenue paying Miller’s fees to her mom instead, only came to light when the judge in the host’s almost-completed bankruptcy case came across Dance Moms on TV one night by chance. Judge Thomas Agresti wondered why money from the show was never a part of the bankruptcy he was overseeing, which had Miller claiming a total income of $8,899 a month.

That soon led to the U.S. Attorney’s office in Pittsburgh pursuing the case of the missing money – which resulted in hundreds of thousands being stashed away. The charges against Miller followed.
