Dance Moms star 'humiliated' in jail

 

She's started her 366-day sentence for bankruptcy fraud, and Abby Lee Miller won't be dancing her way out of prison any time soon, with details having now been revealed of what she's doing behind bars.

According to Radar Online, the 50-year-old Dance Moms coach will be working in the kitchen, making minimal coin per hour.

"Abby will be making 12 cents an hour while she is there and they will most likely give her a kitchen job,” a former inmate tells the publication.

"The work is a joke. When she is in the kitchen she could also work as a server. But the maximum pay is $5.25 for the entire month," the source adds.

It's said that Abby won't be working for the first month as she gets orientated with the prison, but after that, "she will be working four hours a day".

The reality star began her sentence on Wednesday, July 12 in Victorville, California.

She was seen arriving to the correctional facility two-hours before her deadline, according to UsWeekly.

The former reality star has previously revealed she's been extremely nervous before entering the federal facility.

In April Abby revealed, “I’m afraid of being physically abused or raped,” she told People.

The tough-as-nails dance instructor was sentenced to one year and one day in jail for bankruptcy fraud and for bringing $120,000 worth of Australian currency into the United States undeclared after visiting Down Under for dance instruction trips.

Abby pleaded guilty to both cases last year, and was ordered to pay a whopping $54,000 and spend two years on probation after being released.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the US District judge said she felt compelled to send her to prison rather than give her the probation term she wanted. The judge said, "The sentence reflects a need to enforce respect for the bankruptcy process and the law".

"Somehow you got caught up in this world of fame and got sidetracked," the judge added. "And you lost your moral compass."

Prosecutors said she tried to cheat her creditors by hiding $US775,000 worth of income and deserved prison.

When the dance teacher addressed the court, filled with a room full of supporters, she sobbed as she recounted her desperation in trying to save her dance school in Penn Hills.

"I am very sorry for what I've done," she said. "I can only assure you that I will never be before a criminal court again."
