Abby Lee Miller was arrested for theft and fraud, and the Dance Moms star could face up to 30 months in prison. Radar Online reported that Abby Lee Miller is attempting to do everything she can do to ensure that she does not have to go to jail, or at least not for very long if she can help it.

Court papers obtained by the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania reveal that the Dance Moms star claims she “did not deny the existence of contracts related to Dance Moms.”

“Rather, Ms. Miller indicated that she was scheduled to have income from reality television for the next 24 weeks, consistent with the renewal executed unilaterally by A&E on February 23, 2012.”

Miller was ordered by prosecutors to pay $120,000 worth of Australian currency that she brought into the country without reporting. She claims that she did not hold cash a hotel safe like she had been accused of doing.

Happy New Year Australia!!! I wish all of my wonderful friends, our fabulous fans, and the determined, dedicated, dynamite dancers a happy, healthy, and successful new year! Here's hoping that someday I will be back to do the new innovative competition television show utilizing the brilliant dance teachers and their amazing students there in the AU! #ALDC #aldcalways #dancemoms #season7 #abbyleeapparel #aldcla

Abby Lee Miller also denied the calculation of the cash sales of merchandise during the trip to Australia.

“Ms. Miller did not break up the cash proceeds into sums below $10,000. Ms. Miller did not use minor children to carry money into the United States.”

Basically, the Dance Moms star has denied most of the counts against her. She also objected to the loss calculation of $120,000 for the failure to report charge.

Abby Lee Miller insisted that she did not file for bankruptcy protection to deal with mortgage delinquencies on her dance studio in Penn Hills or on her residential home property in Florida.

Instead, she stated that she filed to stay the pending tax sale of the actual property where her dance studio was located.

Miller also objected to restricting pre-petition debt owed to secured creditors PNC Bank and Chase Home Finance.

The only counts against her that Miller did admit to was one count of not reporting an international monetary transaction and one count of concealing bankruptcy assets in June.
