What does Maddie’s departure mean for Lifetime’s hit show? Considering Abby may be headed to prison, it isn’t looking good! The 49-year-old was indicted on 20 counts of bankruptcy fraud in October. The dance teacher pled not guilty to the charges and paid a $10,000 bond during a federal court hearing. If she is convicted of the charges, she could face up to five years in prison.
