Todd and Julie Chrisley aren’t going through a good time. The couple was sentenced to imprisonment on November 21. They were accused of tax evasion and bank fraud and found guilty of these charges. As per the sources, they will begin their life behind the bar on January 17, 2023, at 12 p.m. ET. Todd is ordered to serve 12 years while his wife Julie will serve for 7 years.
Todd and Julie Chrisley will serve in prison camp in Florida
As per the court documents, the Chrisley Knows Best stars will be in Florida as prisoners. Todd will be in Federal Prison Camp in Pensacola while his wife will be in the Federal Correctional Institution in Marianna. The reality stars were found guilty of tax evasion and bank fraud and sentenced to imprisonment in a verdict released in November.
After the verdict, U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Buchanan said,”Over the course of a decade, the defendants defrauded banks out of tens of millions of dollars while evading payment of their federal income taxes.”
He also added, “Their lengthy sentences reflect the magnitude 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.”
On November 22, Chrisley’s attorney Alex Little”Their trial was marred by serious and repeated errors, including the government lying to jurors about what taxes the couple paid. Based on these issues, we are optimistic about the road ahead.”
However, it seems like things aren’t going well for them. Attorney Kate Mangels of Kinsella Weitzman Iser Kump Holley LLP also said their chances to win are very low.
She stated, “There’s so much evidence brought that even if maybe one piece of evidence was improperly brought or one witness was excluded, an appeals court could still say at the end of the day that wasn’t substantial and that wasn’t prejudicial, so even though we find an error, we’re not going to overturn and we’re not going to do a new trial.”
