The Dance Moms star turned herself in to begin her 366-day prison sentence at the FCI Victorville facility in Victorville, California, on Wednesday, arriving in the back of a blacked-out suburban at 12:05 p.m., nearly two hours before her 2 p.m. deadline. Lifetime production cameras captured the last glimpse of Miller as she headed in, sources tell ET exclusively.
"This is an extremely emotional day for Ms. Miller," Miller's attorney, Robert Ridge, said in a statement to ET. "Earlier today, Ms. Miller expressed to us that she is looking forward to starting the process of completing her obligations set by the Court. She has accepted that this matter will never truly be ‘behind her,' but this chapter of the process has begun and there is now an end in sight."
Although federal prisons don't allow cameras inside, ET's sources say that cameras followed Miller as far as possible when she checked in to FCI Victorville. The 50-year-old reality star recently filmed a special with a news journalist for Lifetime regarding her sentencing, and the footage shot on Wednesday will air during the special.
In addition to serving time, Chief Judge Joy Flowers Conti also ordered Miller to pay a $40,000 fine and serve two years probation after her time behind bars. While on probation, she will need to live in a place "approved by the probation officer."
