Todd & Julie Chrisley Speak Out After Being Convicted of Fraud; New Episodes of ‘Chrisley Knows Best’ to Air This Month Despite Verdict

“Y’all make sure to tune in…we really need a Season 10 paycheck.”

Todd and Julie Chrisley have broken their silence after being found guilty earlier this week on multiple federal charges, including bank fraud and tax evasion.

As The Ashley previously reported, the Chrisley Knows Best couple were found guilty by a jury on all counts, following a three-week federal trial in Atlanta, Georgia. Todd and Julie were charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States and tax fraud. Julie was also charged with wire fraud and obstruction of justice. As a result, the two face up to 30 years in prison each.

Todd and Julie, every time they think about the possibility of going three decades without hair dye, botox, or teeth whitener.

Less than 24 hours after Tuesday’s guilty verdict, Todd and Julie issued a statement through Julie’s attorney, who confirmed an appeal will be filed, noting the Chrisleys will fight “until they are vindicated.”

“Both Chrisleys are devastated and disappointed with the verdict and will be pursuing an appeal,” Julie’s lawyer, Steve Friedberg, told ET. “Julie and Todd are so grateful for the love and support shown by their family, friends and fans. They both remain strong in their faith and will continue the ‘fight’ until they are vindicated. They have their priorities in order and are currently concentrating on the welfare of their children and Todd’s mother, Elizabeth Faye Chrisley.”  

“I’m fine! I think y’all need to focus on yourselves!” 

Todd and Julie’s sentencing is not scheduled until October. Though neither have been remanded to jail, they have been placed on home detention with electronic monitoring systems. 

According to a court order, Todd and Julie are only permitted to leave their home for work, education, religious service, court-ordered obligations, medical treatment or attorney visits. All other activities must be pre-approved by their probation officers, who must also be informed if the couple spends more than $1,000.  

“Anyone know of a good La Mer dupe?”

While Todd and Julie’s future remains unknown (at least until their October sentencing), the couple’s TV show will remain on the air– at least for now.

According to CNN, USA Network announced in May that the second half of Season 9 will begin airing June 23. The new episodes– filmed prior to Todd and Julie being convicted– will air as planned; however, there has been no announcement regarding a potential Season 10.

  1. I remember when Todd essentially said they were being investigated because Lindsie reported them out if vindictiveness. I pointed out in his insta comments that the feds don’t launch an investigation just because your daughter is mad at you. He blocked me.

  2. Then most shocking part of this isn’t the money fraud. It’s that so many people seemed shocked that Todd’s lover outted him for having an affair with him . How so many people didn’t realize Todd Chrisley is gay (or bisexual to be politically correct ) is beyond me.

    The second most shocking thing to me is that Josh Duggar literally exploded children but he is getting less time than the Chrisley’s for their money fraud and evasion . Just goes to show you how messed up our system is.

    I guess Chrisley really didn’t know best after all 😂

    1. Hey The Ashley ,
      Could we please for the love of JesuGodLeah get an edit button? I swear that I am literate. I just have fat fingers and think faster than my sausage fingers can type. Therefore, typos lol.
      Please 🥺 ?

      1. You’re right. However , let this sink in and see how you feel. Josh Duggar faced a maximum of 20 years. Only 20 , but got 12. An admitted child molester who wad found guilty of possessing and exchanging child pornography. Yet , the Chrisleys are each facing a max of 30+ years. Make that make sense. That screams ” you can mess with our children, but don’t mess with our money ” to me. We will see what their sentencing ends up being, however , it is still completely fucked up that the Max for JDs crime(s) are less than the Max for the Chrisley’s.

    1. Yes! It always bugged me why I couldn’t think who it was who he reminded me of, but that’s it!!!

  3. If they’re guilty, which evidence points to this being true, they should be treated like normal citizens…not be given special treatment because of their status as TV stars. If any of us were convicted of then same crimes, would we be sitting at home with the ability to continue a lavish lifestyle? They can spend $999.99 a pop without anyone knowing. We sit here in them aftermath of the pandemic, so many struggling to recover financially, while they were defrauding for millions. How is letting them sit at home for the next 4 months fair? I am a firm believer in innocent until proven guilty, but they were proven guilty. Sadly, money speaks louder than fairness in our country.

    1. In America you get different rules to play by when you have money. Even if it’s funds from ill-gotten means.

  4. The irony of the show name, “Chrisley Knows Best”. It’s cute how they’re still proclaiming their innocence and trying to appeal. This is tax evasion, pretty black and white…I’m also not surprised Todd had a secret gay lover either (nothing wrong with being gay).

  5. You know what? I don’t watch the show, but I might be persuaded to watch a season with the Chrisleys in jail.
