Reality TV’s Chrisleys sentenced for bank fraud, tax evasion
ATLANTA (AP) - Federal prosecutors say reality TV stars Todd and Julie Chrisley were driven by greed as they engaged in an extensive bank fraud scheme and then hid their wealth from tax authorities while flaunting their lavish lifestyle.
The Chrisleys gained fame with their show “Chrisley Knows Best.”
They were found guilty on federal charges in June and are set to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge Eleanor Ross in a hearing that begins Monday and is likely to extend into Tuesday.
Federal prosecutors say they should receive lengthy prison sentences.
Lawyers for Todd Chrisley are asking for a considerably lighter prison sentence, while Julie Chrisley’s lawyers have asked for no prison time at all.
