Todd and Julie Chrisley sentenced to federal prison; reality stars receive combined 19 years behind bars.
Chrisleys maintained innocence throughout the investigation in which prosecutors alleged they defrauded banks out of $30 million of fraudulent loans.
An Atlanta judge sentenced Todd Chrisley to 12 years in federal prison Monday, and wife Julie Chrisley received seven years after they were both found guilty in a federal tax evasion case.
Todd and Julie will each have to complete 16 months of probation following the end of their prison sentences.
The couple’s report date is set for Jan. 15, 2023, according to FOX 5.
The Chrisleys did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
It’s not clear if they will be able to stagger their sentences. The “Chrisley Knows Best” stars have custody of his 10-year-old granddaughter, Chloe.
Julie Chrisley’s lawyers requested during sentencing recommendations that if either party is sentenced to prison, their prison terms be staggered so that she can remain on supervised release until her husband is done serving his sentence or until their granddaughter turns 18.
Peter Tarantino, an accountant hired by the Chrisleys, was also found guilty and charged with two counts of willfully filing false tax returns.
Tarantino received three years in prison and will begin his sentence in May following a hip surgery.
Todd was convicted of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, tax fraud and conspiracy to defraud the United States.
Meanwhile, Julie was convicted of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, tax fraud and conspiracy to defraud the United States. She was also hit with wire fraud and obstruction of justice charges.
Their charges typically carry a sentence of anywhere between 10 and 30 years. Prosecutors in the case were asking the judge to sentence Todd to between 17 and 22 years in prison and Julie to 10 to 13 years in prison.
They also wanted the Chrisleys to pay $20 million, according to the court documents.
Prosecutors alleged that the Chrisleys submitted fake documents to banks when applying for loans. They said Julie Chrisley also submitted a false credit report and fake bank statements when trying to rent a house in California.
