In addition to kissing their freedom goodbye, Todd and Julie Chrisley are also expected to kiss their two $9M Nashville mansions goodbye as well. As those who have been following this story know, the reality TV stars were convicted of bank and wire fraud, tax evasion, and conspiracy back in 2019. At the beginning of this week, they were collectively sentenced to 19 years behind bars (Todd doing 12 and Julie doing seven).
Being a $36M fraud case, it shouldn’t come as too much of a shock that the couple also has to pay restitution for their crimes. According to The New York Post, Judge Eleanor Ross of the U.S. District Court in Atlanta ordered the couple to pay a $17.2M restitution for their crimes. Having a combined net worth of just $3M and all of their reality TV shows getting canceled, it is safe to assume Julie and Todd just don’t have that kind of cash sitting around. The New York Post goes on to report that the reality TV stars are expected to give up both of their $9M Nashville mansions in order to foot the hefty restitution bill.
Todd and Julie Chrisley forced to give up both $9M mansions?
In the absence of being able to write a check for $17.2M, the government will begin to seize Todd and Julie Chrisley’s assets to cover the cost of the restitution they were ordered to pay by the judge.
A source explained to The New York Post: “They’re going to have to give up a lot of things, including their homes, sadly. They won’t be able to afford it. But their main concern now is their children, especially their youngest boy.”
What will happen to their children?
Fans are in agreement that Grayson and Chloe are hurt the most by this situation. Chloe was taken in by her grandparents at a very young age. And, now she’s in a position where she’s going to lose her parents again. During the sentencing hearing, Julie heartbreakingly revealed that Chloe told her she wouldn’t want to go on living if Julie ends up in prison.
Presently, Savannah Chrisley has stepped up to take custody of both Chloe and Grayson. Fans assume she’ll have the help and support of her brother Chase and her sister Lindsie. It is unclear how involved Kyle will be in the situation.
Overall, fans have pretty mixed feelings about Savannah becoming a parent of two children. What do you think of the sentencing Todd and Julie received for their crimes? Let us know in the comments down below. And, keep coming back for more on Chrisley Knows Best.
