Todd & Julie Chrisley were ordered to home confinement after their conviction of tax fraud. What does that mean for the reality stars? Keep reading for all the details.
Chrisley Knows Best stars lose court battle
Since their 2019 indictment on an assortment of federal fraud charges, Todd & Julie Chrisley have maintained their innocence.
However, a jury decided otherwise. In May of 2022, the Chrisley Knows Best stars finally stood trial on charges of tax evasion and bank fraud.
After a three-week trial in which Nanny Faye and Lindsie Chrisley both took the stand, the Chrisleys were found GUILTY by a jury of their peers.
The shocking conviction came mere weeks ahead of the return of the reality show. Chrisley Knows Best is slated to resume with new episodes of Season 9 on June 23rd. Furthermore, USA Network announced a week before the trial started that Season 10 of the popular reality stars will air this summer.
Additionally, two of their children have their own reality spinoff. Growing Up Chrisley follows Chase and Savannah as they navigate their mid-20s. That series was also renewed for another season, which will move from the USA Network to the E! channel this summer.
Todd Chrisley is also helming a third spinoff. Love In Limo features the family patriarch doling out dating advice to contestants.
A day after their conviction, the USA Network has remained completely mum on the future of the Chrisley family’s slew of reality shows.
Todd & Julie Chrisley ordered to home confinement
Todd and Julie Chrisley won’t find out their punishment for some months yet. Their sentencing hearing is set for October 6, 2022. Perhaps they’ll strike a plea deal similar to Teresa and Joe Giudice, who both served time for fraud. The RHONJ stars split their prison time, with Teresa serving her sentence while her now ex-husband stayed home with their four children.
While Todd and Julie’s children are grown, they adopted his son Kyle’s young daughter Chloe, and raise her as their own daughter.
For the next four months, the Chrisley Knows Best stars are on home confinement per trial judge Judge Eleanor Ross. However, there are some exceptions.
Insider reports that the Chrisleys can leave home for “work, school, religious service, or seeking medical care.”
When it’s time to hand down their sentence, both Todd and Julie are facing a possible 30-year prison term each.
Daughter breaks silence on conviction
Some of the Chrisley family were quite active on social media during the trial. Savannah often took to her comments to clap back at followers who brought up her parents.
Since the verdict, most of the Chrisleys have stayed completely offline. However, one of Todd’s daughters broke her silence.
Lindsie Chrisley, Todd’s daughter from a previous marriage, took to her Instagram to share her reaction.
“The verdict is not what I hoped or prayed for,” she wrote. She added, “I’m deeply saddened for myself, my son and my family as a whole.”
She asked her followers to pray for her family.
Lindsie famously feuded with her father for the last few years. However, it seems they reconciled right before the trial started and are on cordial terms.
