Attorney for Todd Chrisley Says Todd Has Been Subjected to Unwanted Photography, Destroyed Mail & More While in Prison Due To His Celebrity Status

“I’m sweatin’ my veneers off in this ding-dang hot box!”

Just days after Todd Chrisley‘s kids spoke out about the “inhumane” conditions Todd is dealing with while in prison, his attorney is now stating that the Chrisley Knows Best star is being mistreated due to his celebrity status.

Todd— who is currently serving a 12-year prison sentence at Federal Prison Camp Pensacola in Florida for tax evasion and fraud crimes —claimed via his attorney that he has been subjected to unauthorized photography, a disruption in his mail delivery and more.

Todd’s attorney, Jay Surgent told TMZ that Todd believes someone took his photo while he was sleeping (although he did not say if the alleged amateur paparazzo was a fellow prisoner or member of the prison staff).

“Me night-sweatin’ it out on a prison cot is NOT a Kodak moment, OK!?”

Todd also claims that he is no longer getting any mail, and worries that his mail may be getting destroyed. 

Todd’s attorney told TMZ that he has filed an application with the court to try to get Todd switched from the prison camp to home confinement, although it’s unlikely the court will approve it. 

As The Ashley previously reported, Todd’s kids Savannah and Chase Chrisley recently blasted the prison that Todd is incarcerated at, as well as the prison in Lexington, Kentucky, that their mom, Julie, is serving her seven-year prison sentence at. 

On the latest episode of her Unlocked podcast, Savannah and Chase stated that their parents are currently dealing with extreme heat, black mold and even—- in Julie’s case—- snakes next to her bed, among other things. Chase, who recently returned from a long visit with Todd, called his dad’s prison  “a nightmare.” 

“It’s awful,” Chase said of the conditions at the Pensacola prison camp. “Now they both have no air conditioning. [Todd and Julie] are both in states where it gets to be 100+ degrees and there’s no air conditioning.”

In his interview with TMZ, Todd’s attorney agreed that the living conditions at Todd’s prison are “terrible,” given that the facility is allegedly “plagued by bad plumbing, possible mold, and no A.C..”

Todd and Julie are continuing on with the appeal of their sentences they filed shortly after their sentencing hearing in November

“Get us OUT of here. We.Are.CHRISLEYS!”

“They’re putting one foot in front of the other,” Savannah said on her podcast. “So they’re not giving up, there is no admission of guilt … Since the beginning, they’ve always, always said [that they’re innocent].

  1. I don’t think they want solitary, but if they keep complaining they might have to serve their entire sentence in solitary.

    I don’t mean as a punishment, it would be a punishment, but if they are complain they are “so famous” they are in danger, the judge isn’t going to be like okay cool, you tried your best, good enough.
    They will be like okay, you can serve the rest in solitary/SHU. Which honestly, will probably be worse. I can’t imagine being locked in a room for 22-23 hours a day, with an hour of 1 hr in a cage in the yard, and a shower only a couple times a week. Eating my meals next to a jail toilet. Oh, and there is no AC there either. If the prison doesn’t have AC, neither does the protected wing.

  2. Bahahahahha “celebrity”. Sure Jan. You are so famous and important that people in your prison are taking photos of you while you sleep. And you are such a big deal that your mail is being destroyed. Man, the narcissism is real.

    Again, Chase and Savannah, please please please just stop talking.

    My top 5 reality tv cuckoos who need to stop talking:
    Jenelle Evans
    Chase & Savannah Chrisley
    Farrah Abrahms
    Kate (and Jon) Gosselin
    Anyone from the Bachelor/Bachelorette

  3. FFS. Justin Timberlake yourself and cry me a river.
    It is rich of them to be asking for home confinement in the multimillion dollar mansion that you could have sold to pay those taxes, and is definitely NOT a punishment.
