Todd e Julie Chrisley sono stati entrambi giudicati colpevoli di evasione fiscale e frode bancaria a giugno, secondo Entertainment Weekly, e rischiano fino a 30 anni di prigione. La coppia, nota per il loro popolare programma televisivo “Chrisley Knows Best” su USA Network, ha presentato ricorso contro il verdetto e ha persino assunto nuovi avvocati per aiutarli a vincere il caso, secondo Us Weekly, poiché la coppia era evidentemente sconvolta dal verdetto e doveva affrontare tempo lontano dalla loro famiglia in prigione. Durante un episodio del podcast “Chrisley Confessions” dopo il verdetto, Todd ha spiegato: “È un momento molto triste e straziante per la nostra famiglia in questo momento, ma siamo ancora saldi nella nostra fede e confidiamo che Dio farà quello che fa meglio perché Dio è un operatore di miracoli” (via Pagina Sei).
Although the couple was careful not to speak too much about their case at first, Savannah and Julie Chrisley are finally opening up about Todd's emotional response to all of the legal trouble.
Savannah Chrisley is angry about her parents facing prison time
Savannah Chrisley is beyond upset that her parents are facing prison time in prison after being convicted of tax evasion and bank fraud, according to People, although their sentencing was recently postponed to November 21. During a recent episode of the "Unlocked with Savannah Chrisley" podcast, Savannah held back tears. "For me, it makes me so angry to see two people who are constantly stepping up for people, and then it's like when are people going to step up for them?" she said while speaking with her mother, Julie. "Dad's always been so prideful, but this whole thing has broken him... there have been days where he has come to me crying and he's like, 'Don't tell your mom because I don't want her to go through any more than she's going through.' And it's just completely changed him... you."
Savannah has remained confident about the fact that her parents are innocent. She claims they have always done the right thing and taught her to do the same. Her mother, Julie, revealed on the podcast, "Is this the greatest test I've ever had? Absolutely." And while they know people are going to believe what they want to believe, Savannah encouraged those listening to do their own research.
When it comes to the impact these cases have on people, Savannah explained, "It doesn't just affect the people that it's happening to. It affects whole families, it affects kids."
