For Todd and Julie Chrisley, the verdict is in. The Chrisley Knows Best actors were convicted of fraud in June, and on November 21, a court sentenced them to several years in federal prison.

According to a statement obtained by News from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia, Todd was sentenced to 12 years in prison and Julie was given a seven-year suspended sentence.

“Over a decade, the defendants defrauded banks of tens of millions of dollars while evading payment of their federal income taxes,” U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Buchanan said in a statement. “Their lengthy sentences reflect the scale of their criminal scheme and should serve as a warning to others tempted to exploit our nation’s community banking system for unlawful personal gain.”

“As this conviction illustrates, when you lie, deceive and steal, justice ignores your reputation, your wealth and your position,” said Keri Farley, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Atlanta office.

The couple, who had been arrested nationwide in August 2019, were found guilty on June 7 by an Atlanta postponement jury of 12 counts, including conspiracy to commit bank fraud and fraud email, despite their pleas of not guilty.

Todd’s attorney, Bruce Morris, told News that the couple intended to appeal the court’s decision earlier this summer.

A lawyer not involved in the case, Kate Mangels, told News that “a very low percentage of appeals are granted.”

There was so much evidence presented, Kate continued, “that even if a piece of evidence was presented inappropriately or a witness was excluded, an appeals court could still ultimately say that it was not substantial and that it was not detrimental. so even if we find a mistake, we are not going to cancel and we are not going to retrial.

On the June 16 episode of their Chrisley Confessions podcast, Todd and Julie discussed the guilty verdict and thanked their listeners for their support throughout their legal ordeal.

“We wanted to come out today and let everyone know that this is a very sad and heartbreaking time for our family right now,” Todd said. “We still have unwavering faith and are confident that God will do what He does best because God is a miracle worker. That’s what we stick to. »
