BREAKING NEWS: Todd and Julie Chrisley have been sentenced after being found guilty of criminal bank fraud and tax evasion just hours after it was made public that their youngest child had been injured in a serious automobile accident.
Todd Chrisley received a sentence of 12 years in jail plus 16 months of probation, according to WSB-TV. Julie, his wife, was given a sentence of 7 years in jail and 16 months of probation.
Todd and Julie “took out $30 million in illegal bank loans to fuel their luxurious lifestyle and extravagant spending long before they became reality television stars,” according to the prosecution’s case from back in June.
To prevent the IRS from pursuing Todd Chrisley’s overdue taxes, they concealed their income through a film production company that they owned.
Regarding their sentence or the accident involving their kid, Todd and Julie have not yet made a statement.
The Chrisley Knows Best family’s youngest member was seriously injured in a car accident. Initial reports state that around 5:30 p.m., 16-year-old Grayson Chrisley was traveling down 1-65 in Nashville in his Ford F-150 when he collided with the driver in front of him.
Grayson’s F-150 collided with the back of a Dodge pickup truck that was stopped in heavy traffic, according to TMZ.
When first responders arrived on the site, they attempted to speak with Grayson but he “couldn’t recollect anything about the collision.”
Grayson was taken by ambulance to the hospital with critical wounds. Some people think he might have a head injury.
In the images obtained exclusively by TMZ, Grayson’s white truck’s front end is utterly wrecked, and his windshield is entirely broken. According to reports, the truck driver Grayson struck was hurt as well but declined on-the-spot treatment.
No arrests or charges have been made as of yet.
Grayson’s accident occurs as his parents, who were convicted of fraud in June, are about to get their sentences, according to the AP. Beginning on November 21, the sentencing hearing is anticipated to last a few days.
For her role, Julie faces more than 12 years in prison, while Todd faces almost 22.
Prosecutors claimed that “The Chrisleys have constructed an empire based on the falsehood that their money comes from dedication and hard work.” The jury’s unanimous decision clarifies the situation:
Todd and Julie Chrisley are professional fraudsters who have made life by switching between fraud schemes, deceiving banks, taking advantage of vendors, and dodging taxes everywhere.
