Abby began her sentence on 12 July 2017 at the Federal Correctional Complex in Victorville, California.

On Sunday Abby shared a picture of herself with some visitors on Instagram with a lengthy message.

"Sometimes in life you make mistakes. I trusted the wrong people and didn't pay any attention to things I should of. I'm more than sorry for the mistakes I have made. My world flipped upside down when I had to enter prison. I did so with grace."

She continues: "The stories you read about me been [sic] a princess are untrue. I have made friends with both inmates and staff, I've tried to better myself, participated in anything offered to me and I am a better person for this experience."

Abby also addressed the rumour that she would get an early release. 

"All the press stories and speculation are not entirely correct. However, I am feeling hopeful, but no dates have been confirmed at this time. I am feeling great and ready to turn over a new leaf thank you so much to everyone for your support especially my nearest and dearest I love you all (and yes this is me in prison ) #abbyleemiller #abbylee #dancemoms #dance #aldc."

Deadline reported that Abby might be released from jail in February for good behaviour after serving less than half her sentence.
