Abby Lee Miller is taking responsibility for her unlawful actions. The Dance Moms star is expected to plead guilty next week to bankruptcy fraud and failing to report over $10,000 of Australian currency she brought into the United States.

Miller's guilty pleas have been scheduled for Monday, June 27.

The ALDC owner was charged with 20 counts of fraud in October. She has been charged with concealment of bankruptcy assets, false bankruptcy declarations and bankruptcy fraud. She pled not guilty to the charges on November 2.

Prosecutors added the currency reporting charge on Monday, as she has been asked to pay at least $120,000 for the August 2014 crime.

"Events over the past several months have been extremely challenging for me, my family, my friends and most important, my students," Miller, 49, said in a statement. "Because of this I made the very difficult decision to close the door on this chapter of my life by accepting responsibility for mistakes I have made along the way.

"I appreciate all the wonderful messages of support I've received from around the world and look forward to the future and getting back to my life's work; helping young dancers fulfill their potential."

Miller could face up to five years in prison and $5 million in fines if she pleads guilty to all charges.
