Savannah Chrisley breaks her silence about her parents’ tax fraud conviction. Keep reading to see her response to the shocking outcome for the Chrisley Knows Best stars.
Todd & Julie Chrisley face up to 30 years in prison
Chrisley Knows Best stars Todd & Julie Chrisley have been in the courtroom for the last three weeks on fraud charges. The charges stem from a 2019 indictment accusing the reality stars of tax evasion and bank fraud.
On Tuesday, June 7, they were found guilty on all 12 counts. Their sentences will be handed down in October. In the meantime, they are on under house arrest. They can’t leave their mega-mansion except for work, church, or for medical care.
What, if anything, has the couple’s children said about the verdict?
Savannah Chrisley breaks her silence on verdict
Todd Chrisley’s formerly estranged daughter from a previous relationship, Lindsie, was the first to break her silence. She posted on social media that she was “saddened” by the verdict and asked followers to pray for her family.
Todd’s son, Kyle, is from the same previous relationship. He has yet to share any comments about the trial.
Additionally, Julie and Todd Chrisley have three children together – Savannah, Chase, and Grayson. Of the three, Savannah Chrisley is the first to break her silence about the verdict.
She took to her Instagram Stories a day after the conviction to share a cryptic quote. In part, it said, “I live off the truth. I don’t live off an opinion.”
“I know what God says about me and I’m not trading that for what anyone else has to say,” the quote continued.
Since she posted it on her IG Stories, followers can’t make public comments. However, her followers left supportive messages on other posts both during the trial and after the verdict.
But not quite everyone had something nice to say.
Previously defended parents’ innocence
Savannah Chrisley was among her parents’ staunchest supporters. So, when trolls left comments questioning Todd & Julie’s innocence, Savannah was the first to clap back.
On one recent post, Savannah shared a photo with her mom Julie to promote the latest Chrisley Box promotion. One follower left a comment saying they wouldn’t be ordering anything from the family.
The comment came before the guilty verdict. They wrote, “I know innocent until proven guilty but the court documents [are] disgusting.”
Savannah Chrisley quickly put the follower in their place. “Don’t order then,” she wrote. “You have no idea what you’re talking about! Our government is corrupt,” the Sassy By Savannah founder said.
