Savannah Chrisley recently revealed how her parents felt after they heard the appeal. Julie and Todd Chrisley are in federal prison for fraud and tax evasion. It has taken a toll on their children. Savannah has taken in her younger siblings, Grayson and Chloe. She has also been advocating for her parents as much as she can. However, they just had an appeal hearing and gave their opinions after hearing it from their prison cells.

Appeal Hearing Arguments

During the appeal hearing there were arguments for both sides. 

“First, the issue that was discussed that came out in the redirect and then the re-cross of Officer Betty Carter was whether the Chrisleys had paid taxes in the post-conspiracy period, now, the district court below confirmed that that would have a potential prejudicial effect on the defendants leading the jury to believe that they had not paid their taxes, that they weren’t interested in paying taxes, that they were untruth type of person who could commit fraud charged in the other acts. That effect spills over not just to the tax charges but to all of the fraud charges in this case.”

However, the arguing team did fight back.

“the evidence was overwhelming at trial that the Chrisleys had taken a number of steps to evade the IRS and they conspired to evade the IRS. So yes, if there are credible allegations and some evidence proffered about any sort of government misconduct a hearing should be had. That’s simply not what we have in this case,”
