Chrisley Family Stands by Todd & Julie as They Prepare for Prison After Fraud Sentencing

Reality TV stars Todd and Julie Chrisley have been sentenced to prison for fraud, with Todd serving 12 years and Julie receiving 7 years, alongside 16 months of probation. The Growing Up Chrisley stars were indicted in 2019, with the couple pleading not guilty and claiming a former employee was to blame, but they were found guilty in June 2021. Despite their sentence, the Chrisley family are standing by the couple as they prepare to appeal their convictions.

Todd and Julie Chrisley have been sentenced to a combined 19 years in prison for tax evasion, bank and wire fraud and conspiracy, but remain hopeful for their future as they plan to appeal the verdict.

The Chrisley family is showing their unwavering support for Todd and Julie Chrisley as they prepare to serve time in prison after receiving their sentences for their fraud case. The stars of the popular reality show, Chrisley Knows Best, were handed a combined 19 years sentence on November 21. Todd, 53, will serve 12 years, while Julie, 49, will serve seven years. They will also need to serve 16 months of probation.

Despite the daunting news, the couple remains optimistic for their future. Their attorney exclusively told Us Weekly on November 22 that Todd and Julie are people of faith, and that faith gives them strength as they appeal their convictions. The couple‚Äôs trial was marred by serious and repeated errors, including the government lying to jurors about what taxes they paid. The couple’s attorney is optimistic that the appeal process will be successful.

The US Network personalities were indicted on 12 counts of tax evasion, bank and wire fraud, and conspiracy in 2019. Todd and Julie denied the allegations, blaming their former employee Mark Braddock for exaggerating their earnings to banks to borrow more than $30 million. However, a jury found the couple guilty in June, and the pair took steps to appeal the verdict.

While the family remains supportive, a legal expert told Us Weekly that the appeal may not have the best chance of success. Neama Rhamani explained that it is hard to appeal a question of fact that a jury has already found. Nonetheless, the family appears to be staying positive and is united in their support for Todd and Julie.

The Chrisleys share three children together — daughter Savannah and sons Chase and Grayson. However, Savannah recently revealed on her “Unlocked” podcast that she has taken custody of Grayson and Todd’s granddaughter Chloe after the news of her parents’ fate was announced. She described her new normal and the challenge of spending their first Thanksgiving apart as a family. Despite the difficulties, the family remains hopeful and united in support of Todd and Julie as they navigate the next phase of their lives.
