Julie is also charged with falsifying a credit report and bank statements while renting a home in California, prosecutors said.

U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Bunchanan said Chrisley’s conviction should serve as a “warning.”

“Over the course of a decade, the defendants defrauded banks out of tens of millions of dollars while evading payment of their federal income taxes,” Bunchanan said.

Todd should be serving his sentence at FCI Pensacola, and Julie at FCI Tallahassee – the same prison where Ghislaine Maxwell is serving her sentence for her involvement in Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring.

The couple plans to appeal their conviction.
