“They should both be treated to added time on their sentences for all the grief and attempts at slandering the prison system,” one person wrote, referring to the couple’s outcries about the prison system.

“It’s funny that these ppl are crying that prison is so bad but they are getting the royal treatment,” another person responded. “Never once did I hear about how bad they felt prisons were and how bad prisoners are being treated by them and how much they care about those behind bars. I will respect them once they start taking accountability for what they did and being accused of.” A third person wrote that they doubted the couple would ever own up to any wrongdoing.

  1. Well, speaking from experience (unfortunately). They do special things, meal wise in prison on the major holidays. However, I do believe it is usually all donated by local churches etc. We are all just human.

  2. I understand that some people have their opinions on what the Chrisley’s did if they are guilty or innocent who are we to judge the flaws of another person and the way they should be treated in prison for a non violent crime. They didn’t murder someone in cold blood. So they didn’t pay their taxes, it is what it is that doesn’t mean they should only have bread and water to eat. That is some cold comments.Have empathy and don’t judge sometimes good decent people make bad choices. We are only human not perfect.

    1. I agree with you, I happen to love their show and like you stated, we all make mistakes. People are so quick to judge and they are the ones with the skeletons in there closet!

  3. I think it’s terrible that they got all the TV exposure and money. Yet both are Christians, but don’t fear the government. Almost not until they when to prison. All normal people pay taxes.They should spend every day of their sentences in prison.
