The reality stars also have to partake in the home detention program. Moreover, they also need to abide by the program’s requirements. These mandates include regular use of electronic monitoring equipment. Along with that, the couple needs to allow monitoring via other location verification systems.
Chrisleys Allowed To Leave House But Under Stringent Conditions
Both Todd and Julie are to follow stringent home detention rules. The only exception they have is when they leave the house for education, employment, or religious services. These exceptions also include other important aspects, including mental or medical health treatment, court appearances, or attorney visits. More so, they can leave the home for court-ordered obligations.
Further, the couple should, without fail, report to their probation officer if ever they spend anything more than $1000. Todd & Julie were accused of procuring $30 million in fraudulent bank loans. As per reports, this was a move to fund their luxurious lifestyle. The couple’s obvious spending was confirmed later on the USA Network’s Chrisley Knows Best.

After their luxurious spending was confirmed, prosecutors claimed that the reality stars evaded taxes. The couple was accused of failing to pay taxes for 9 years from 2008 to 2016. The Chrisleys were accused of federal tax evasion in 2019 in Atlanta. However, they maintained their innocence in the matter, claiming that their finances were being controlled by someone else.
Later, the couple was tried on 5 counts of bank fraud, 1 count of conspiring to defraud the United States, 1 count of conspiring to commit bank fraud, & 1 count of tax fraud. Additionally, Julie was tried on 1 count of wire fraud along with 1 count of obstruction of justice.
