Todd and Julie Chrisley, stars of the reality show “Chrisley Knows Best”, were found guilty on federal bank fraud and tax evasion charges. A report from the Associated Press said, the couple were found guilty on the charges in a federal courtroom in Atlanta.
The trial against The Chrisley’s began three weeks ago. On Tuesday, a jury found the couple guilty of conspiring to defraud community banks out of more than $30 million in fraudulent loans, conspiracy to defraud the IRS, and tax evasion. Julie Chrisley was also convicted on charges of wire fraud and obstruction of justice.
U.S. District Judge, Eleanor Ross, allowed the Chrisley’s to remain free on bail, after the jury’s verdict. Their bond conditions require both Chrisley’s to be placed on location monitoring and home detention. The only time they are allowed to leave the house without permission from a probation officer, is to go to work, and also medical and court appearances. The couple also must alert probation officers before spending more than $1000.
Sentencing date for the reality stars has been set for October 8th.
