Todd and Julie Chrisley Report to Prison to Begin Federal Sentences

By: April Carson

The US justice system has taken Todd and Julie Chrisley, famed reality TV personalities, into custody at a federal prison facility according to their lawyer Alex Little. the Chrisleys - who are well-known for their reality series "Chrisley Knows Best" has pled guilty to charges of bank fraud, tax evasion, and conspiracy. They agreed to pay a total of $2 million in restitution for their crimes.

Just before noon local time on Tuesday, the duo convicted of fraud and tax crimes last November reported to their respective incarceration centers in Florida and Kentucky - as instructed by Little from CNN.

The Chrisleys’ guilty pleas avoided a potentially lengthy legal battle and possible sentence of up to 30 years in prison.

Todd Chrisley, who was given a 12-year sentence, reported to Federal Prison Camp Pensacola in Florida -- a minimum security prison camp that has 339 inmates and offers dormitory housing with few staff members as well as limited or no perimeter fencing. According to the Bureau of Prisons, this particular facility is suitable for those convicted of nonviolent crimes.

Julie Chrisley, who received a sentence of seven years, will be confined in the Federal Medical Center situated in Lexington Kentucky. Initially she was supposed to report to the medium-security prison located at Marianna Florida with an adjoining minimum-security satellite camp.

The Chrisleys were convicted of various tax evasion and fraud-related charges. In August 2019, the couple pleaded guilty to bank fraud and conspiracy to commit bank fraud. They also admitted to not filing taxes for four years, resulting in a total loss to the IRS of about $2 million in unpaid taxes and penalties.

In addition to the fraud charges, the couple and their accountant were convicted of a multitude of tax crimes including attempting to deceive the IRS while evading collection on unpaid taxes. The Department of Justice officially confirmed this information.

The couple was originally ordered to report to prison on October 6th, however they were allowed additional time due to the pandemic.

The Chrisleys remain adamant in their innocence and are actively contesting the charges against them. After premiering on USA Network in 2014, “Chrisley Knows Best” is set to air a shortened tenth season this year.

It will be interesting to see how this situation affects the show’s viewership given that it has been a fan favorite for many years. Regardless, it is clear that Todd and Julie Chrisley have had their lives permanently altered by this trial and sentencing.

Their attorney has stated that they “will continue to fight the false charges that have been brought against them, and are confident that they will be vindicated when the truth comes out.”

The Chrisleys have put on a united front through this entire ordeal, and from now on it seems that the only way to go is up. "Although there are many questions surrounding their prison sentences, it is certain that Todd and Julie will face what comes their way head-on, with courage and perseverance," said their attorney.
