Abby Lee Miller Faces Jail Time: Dance Moms Star Smuggles $120K In Plastic Bags From Australia To LA - Guilty In Currency Case?

Abby Lee Miller is in hot water once again. Reports indicate that federal prosecutors want Abby Lee Miller to forfeit $120,000 worth of Australian currency that she brought into the country without reporting it.

Authorities in the case say that Abby Lee Miller divided $120,000 worth of Australian money into several plastic bags before boarding a flight from Sydney to Los Angeles back in 2014. She had her assistants put the bags in their luggage. The law requires travelers to report if they are bringing back more than $10,000 worth of foreign currency into the country. Abby, for her part, said it was a simple ‘mistake.’

Back in 2015, Abby was indicated on 20 counts of bankruptcy fraud. She allegedly hid $775,000 worth of assets in both 2012 and 2013. Abby claimed that she was only making $8,999 monthly on her tax returns. A judge in the case happened to be channel-surfing when he saw the reality television star on Lifetime’s ‘Dance Moms’ back in December of 2012.

He figured that Abby was definitely making more than the $8,999 she claimed on her taxes. Authorities discovered that she was hiding $228,000 in income from ‘Dance Moms’ and ‘Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition,’ and another $550,000 from public appearances, dance classes, and Abby Lee Dance Studio merchandise.
