Abby Lee Miller is now celebrating the cancellation of her verdict for fraud, although it will only be rescheduled. While the 50-year-old host's near imprisonment dominated the finale episode of "Dance Moms" Season 7, she now feels relieved for her sentence's delay. Fans are also hoping to get more solid details about the Abby Lee Miller case.
Abby Lee Miller is about to face her sentence in less than 48 hours after Pittsburgh-based Judge Joy Flowers Conti decided to reschedule the hearing. "The sentencing scheduled for 2/24/2017 is canceled," the court said on Wednesday, Deadline reported.
The verdict, which is part of Abby Lee Miller's guilty plea, will be rescheduled by "further order of the court." The famous dance instructress should have faced two and a half years in prison if found at fault. However, the court has yet to give its final schedule.
But, the feds motion from Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg Melucci said the government has requested to continue the hearing to the earliest possible date. Abby Lee Miller's legal team, on the other hand, agreed with the court's demand.
Moreover, TribLive reported Abby Lee Miller pleaded guilty in June after hiding her assets during the Chapter 11 bankruptcy hearing in 2010. Also, she failed to report the more than $10,000 she brought home in the country from Australia in 2014.
Abby Lee Miller's sentencing hearing has started in January and took a day to finish. Hence, Judge Conti decided to schedule the additional testimonies and her verdict on Friday. The arbitrator gave the host the freedom to travel to England from Feb. 16 to 21 as the latter needed to film a movie.
However, Judge Conti insisted it is not the reason why her verdict to Abby Lee Miller's case is suspended. Meanwhile, there are no words yet if there will be "Dance Moms" Season 8. But, Deadline cited that some sources revealed its production is in the works for several weeks.
