Looks like Todd and Julie Chrisley may be getting out of jail a little earlier than expected.
According to People the Federal Bureau of Prisons’ online inmate search system, the Chrisley family patriarch will now leave the Federal Prison Camp Pensacola on Jan. 22, 2033, which is nearly two years before his original 12-year sentence was meant to conclude.
In contrast, Julie’s sentence has been reduced by a period of 14 months, resulting in her anticipated release from the Federal Medical Center Lexington now scheduled for October 19, 2028.
Todd, 54, and Julie, 50, were indicted in August 2019 for 12 counts of bank and wire fraud, tax evasion, and conspiracy, all of which they have denied.
The couple was cleared of their state tax evasion charge in Georgia in October 2019 but continued to face federal charges for allegedly evading federal taxes.
Following a nearly three-week-long trial that began in May 2022, the Chrisleys were later sentenced that November to a combined 19 years in prison. And despite having appealed the case, they reported to prison on Jan. 17.
Todd and Julie’s attorney Jay Surgent revealed new filings were submitted in late July.
“The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals can reverse the District Court, or they could remand the case back for hearings that should have been held that were not held during the course of this trial,” he explained. “We argued very vigorously that their constitutional rights have been violated, and that they basically were not given a fair hearing. It’s all in black and white, actually.”
In the meantime, Todd and Julie’s children have given updates on how they’ve been coping with prison.
“They’re hanging in there. It’s a terrible situation,” their son Chase Chrisley recently told Extra. “The conditions [of their prisons] are awful and if you read all these headlines they say the polar opposite, but it is not the truth and we’re going to be spreading a lot of awareness to that as well.”
But Savannah, 26, said she still has “so much hope” for her parents despite the hardship they’ve faced.
“I know that they’re going through what they’re going through for us to make a difference, for us to make a change,” she previously said on her podcast. “Because whether this appeal works or not, they’re still coming out with a story.”
