While The Chrisley’s are currently on house arrest, their daughter Savannah Chrisley, 25, and her mother Julie discussed the impact of their family’s ongoing legal battle on Tuesday’s episode of her Unlocked podcast. As previously reported, in June, a federal jury found Todd, 53, and Julie, 49, guilty of conspiracy to commit bank fraud and tax evasion in June.
Savannah admitted that her mother is “handling it way better than I am” however, Julie was quick to disagree with her daughter.
“That’s where I’m at, being so angry because my whole life could change,” she said. “And I don’t mean money. But the two people that I’ve always had there for me and that’s been my support system and who I’ve leaned on.”
Federal prosecutors say the Chrisleys’ wealth was a lie and the couple manufactured documents and defrauded local banks out of $30 million dollars in loans, eventually filing bankruptcy and walking away from more than $20 million owed. https://t.co/kZ0jqoSTGu— WSB-TV (@wsbtv) May 18, 2022
During their three-week trial, Assistant US Attorney Annalise Peters claimed that Todd and Julie submitted false documents exaggerating their wealth to banks to borrow over $30 million that they “burned” on their affluent lifestyle while additionally hiding money from the IRS.
According to People, Julie, 49, discussed how she and Todd have been steadfast in their Christian faith.
“Everyone has it hard. But the one thing God has said is ‘I will never leave you, I will never forsake you.’ He didn’t promise us it was always going to be rainbows and sunshine,” Julie shared. “But he always promised that the rain would eventually stop.”people
