Chrisley Knows Best stars Todd and Julie Chrisley have reported to prison for the start of their 12 and 7 year sentences, according to reports.
Todd reported Tuesday (January 17) to FPC Pensacola in Florida, according to a report from TMZ, with Julie Chrisley reporting to a different federal prison in Lexington, KY at Federal Medical Center Lexington.
As previously reported, the longtime USA reality stars were sentenced to a combined 19 years in prison after being convicted on bank fraud and tax evasion charges.
According to Deadline, the reality show has been cancelled amid the legal drama but will still air a few previously-filmed episodes of Season 10 sometime in 2023. Spinoff Growing Up Chrisley, which followed kids Chase and Savannah, has also been put on pause. (The series was moved to E! from USA for Season 4, which finished airing in October.)
Peter Tarantino, the couple’s accountant, was sentenced to 3 years in prison for the tax evasion scheme after being found guilty of filing two false corporate tax returns on behalf of the Chrisley’s company, the outlet reported. The couple has denied their involvement in any scheme and place blame on their financial team at the time, according to previous statements in the media.
Chrisley Knows Best star Todd Chrisley was facing up to 22 years in prison while Julie Chrisley could have been sentenced to up to 12 and a half years. According to various reports, the couple defrauded banks out of over $30 million in fraudulent loans over many years and then failed to pay their federal income taxes, in addition to other various financial crimes.
