Todd and Julie Chrisley are going to prison for a long time because they were found guilty of bank fraud and tax evasion. A judge just gave Todd a sentence of 12 years and Julie a sentence of 7 years.
On Monday, in federal court in Atlanta, U.S. District Judge Eleanor Ross told the “Chrisley Knows Best” stars what would happen to them. Both of them were also put on probation for 16 months.
As reported by a source, Todd and Julie were found guilty of a number of federal charges in June. While they waited to be sentenced, they had to stay in their Nashville mansion under house arrest.
On Monday, federal prosecutors argued that Todd and Julie should spend a long time in prison, around 22 years for Todd and 12 years for Julie. On the other side, Todd’s lawyers said he should get no more than 9 years in prison, and Julie’s lawyers said she should spend no time behind bars and just get probation.
Todd and Julie were indicted in 2019 on charges that they lied to banks to get millions of dollars in loans by using fake financial documents. The U.S. Attorney’s Office also said that Todd and Julie cheated the government by trying to avoid paying federal income taxes.
Todd and Julie have more problems, too. As reported by sources before, Todd is being sued for comments he made on a podcast about a Georgia official who was looking into him for tax evasion, and their son Grayson was recently in a scary car accident where he was badly hurt.
