Dated December 15, both diplomas indicate that the actress “honorably fulfilled all of the requirements” for the classes. Miller has been awarded the recognition.
Incarcerated at the Victorville Federal Correctional Institution in California, Miller was convicted of bankruptcy fraud on July 12. She was accused of hiding the money in secret bank accounts and stealing another $120,000 with the help of her friends.
The famous prisoner and reality TV star plead guilty to fraud. She also agreed to forfeit the $120,000 to the government.
The courts ordered Miller to refund the $120,000 and fined her an additional $40,000. This is in addition to a 1-year PLUS 1-day prison sentence, plus two years of supervised parole release.

How this connects to the $120,000 she divvied with her friends remains a guess. But she also expressed worries on what prison life looked like and how she would cope with money on her eventual release:
“Will I come out and have nothing? That’s more scary than going in. I made mistakes and I trusted people, but ultimately I have to take responsibility.”
Considering her worries about money after her release from prison, how Miller is going to put her two prison diplomas to use remains to be seen. But the famous TV star appears to be resourceful in all she sets her mind upon to achieve.
So we shall see!
