A federal judge has sentenced former "Dance Moms" star, Abby Lee Miller, to spend a year and a day in prison.
The ruling was handed down yesterday morning in federal court. Miller had been indicted on 20 counts of fraud connected to hiding $755,000 in earnings from the government. During the trial, she took the stand and begged the judge for mercy, saying she had fallen victim to the sudden fame that came when "Dance Moms" took off.
Miller will reportedly serve her sentence in a federal facility near Los Angeles, and after she gets out she'll be on supervised release for 2 more years. She will also have to pay about $160,000 in fines.
She could have gotten 5 years in prison and $5 million in fines.
