    The federal court sentencing for "Dance Moms" star Abby Lee Miller has been postponed from Oct. 11 to Dec. 2. 

    Federal prosecutors in Pittsburgh and Miller's attorney asked to delay the sentence until after a federal appeals court decides a similar bankruptcy fraud case that could impact her sentencing. 

    Miller has pleaded guilty to trying to hide $775,000 worth of income from the Lifetime network reality show and spinoff projects during her Chapter 11 bankruptcy and violating another law by bringing more than $10,000 worth of Australian currency into the country in 2014.

    Prosecutors have said sentencing guidelines call for a prison term of 24 to 30 months, but the defense contends Miller's creditors didn't lose money so the sentence should range from probation to six months in jail.
