It's one thing after the other for Abby Lee Miller.
As we reported, Dance Moms star was served a 20-count federal indictment earlier this month for hiding an estimated $755K she made from her TV appearances — which could mean five years behind bars and $5 million in fines.
Well, the reality TV personality saw her first day in court on Monday.
At the arraignment held in downtown Pittsburgh, the 49-year-old paid a bond of $10,000 and entered a plea of "not guilty."

No start date has been set yet, but the dance instructor asked for a jury trial once it begins, which would be anticipated to last for about 11 days.
Miller is free to travel domestically as she pleases in the meantime, but is required to inform the feds if she wants to go abroad.
During the court appearance, the Lifetime star answered "yes" when questioned if she takes the charges of bankruptcy fraud, concealment of bankruptcy assets, and false bankruptcy declarations seriously.
Well, that's good considering the serious consequences.
When asked for comment by reporters on her way into the courthouse, to which she responded:
"I didn't have my hair done. Season 6 jackets are on sale on the website Wednesday."
Well alrighty, then! Guess we can't blame her for little self promotion!
Stay tuned for more once trial details are released!
