Reality television stars Todd and Julie Chrisley, known for their roles on the USA Network series “Chrisley Knows Best” and its spin-off “Growing Up Chrisley,” have had their prison sentences reduced. The couple was convicted in November 2022 of tax and bank fraud and reported to prison in January. Todd Chrisley’s release date from FPC Pensacola is now scheduled for January 22, 2033, which is approximately two years earlier than his original 12-year sentence. Julie Chrisley’s scheduled release from FMC Lexington is now October 19, 2028, which is one year and three months earlier than her original 7-year sentence.
Their attorney, Jay Surgent, stated that Todd and Julie Chrisley are model incarcerated individuals who received excessive sentences. Surgent believes that the implementation of new sentencing guidelines in November will further reduce their sentences. The Bureau of Prisons did not comment on the specific reduction of the Chrisleys’ sentences.
In May, Savannah Chrisley, the couple’s daughter, mentioned on her podcast that her mother is finding prison life more challenging than her father. Savannah described Julie Chrisley as scared and struggling to adapt.
