More than six months after being convicted of bank fraud and tax evasion, Chrisley Knows Best Todd and Julie Chrisley are heading to prison to start their combined 19-year sentence in Northwest Florida and Kentucky facilities. 

According to WEAR-TV, Todd Chrisley will be serving time at FPC Pensacola, which is a minimum-security facility in Pensacola, Florida. Meanwhile, Julie Chrisley was originally going to FCI Marianna in Jackson County, Florida, just two hours away. However, she will report to Federal Medical Center Lexington in Lexington, Kentucky instead.

Todd will be spending 12 years in prison and will have 16 months of probation. Julie received a 7-year prison sentence as well as 16 months of probation.

On Monday (January 16th), Todd Chrisley took to his Instagram page to share he’s turning to his religious beliefs during this difficult time. “HE is always on time… #fightthegoodfight,” Chrisley captioned the social media post. The video features Karen Peck singing “Four Days Late.”

Todd and Julie Chrisley’s attorney previously spoke out about the couple’s prison sentences and what it meant for the family. “Yesterday was a difficult day for the Chrisley family. But Todd and Julie are people of faith, and that faith gives them strength as they appeal their convictions.”

The attorney also stated that the trial was marred by “serious and repeated errors.” This included the government allegedly lying to jurors about what taxes the couple paid. “Based on these issues, we are optimistic about the road ahead.”
