Todd Chrisley shared one final message before he turned himself in to serve his prison sentence

Todd Chrisley shared one final message before he turned himself in to serve his prison sentence

Todd Chrisley and his wife Julie have now reported to prison to begin their sentences after being convicted of tax fraud

Todd Chrisley shared a final message on social media before he reported to the federal penitentiary where he is set to begin his prison sentence.

The 53-year-old reality TV star and his wife Julie Chrisley have now reported to the facilities where they will be spending their next few years after being convicted of tax fraud.

E! News reported that Todd will be spending his 12 years in prison at the Federal Correctional Institution Pensacola in Florida, whilst 50-year-old Julie will spend seven years in the Federal Medical Center Lexington in Lexington, Kentucky.

The stars of Chrisley Knows Best were living the life of luxury claiming to have made their millions from a real estate empire, but in truth they were avoiding tax and defrauding banks out of $30 million to fund their lavish existence.

They are appealing their conviction, but reported earlier this week to their respective facilities to begin their sentences.

Before he handed himself over to the prison system, Todd shared a video on his social media that showed gospel artist Karen Peck singing a religious song called ‘Four Days Late’.

That video was later deleted, but PEOPLE reports that post was accompanied by the caption: “HE is always on time.”

Lyrics to the religious song read: "Lord, we don't understand why You've waited so long, But His way is God's way, not yours or mine, And isn't it great, when He's four days late, He's still on time."

Todd reportedly added the hashtag #fightthegoodfight at the end of his post.

Underneath the Instagram post, Todd and Julie’s family showed their support, with his son writing: “I love you daddy this isn’t over.”

Daughter Savannah Chrisley also said: “I love you daddy.”

Even the song’s artist Karen Peck commented, writing: "We are praying for you, Julie, and your family."

Julie has spoken before now on the couple’s podcast Chrisley Confessions about how tough it is set to be whilst the pair are incarcerated.

Speaking about her son Chase’s fiancée Emmy Medders’ mother, who is caring for her father who suffers with ALS, Julie said: "There is that possibility of my husband and I being separated, but there’s a difference between my husband and I being separated for a period of time and having to say goodbye forever.

"So, it almost makes me feel ashamed that I’m worried.

“She’s going to have to say goodbye to her husband and she won’t see him again on this side of heaven.

“So, I think it puts things into perspective.

“I know it puts things into perspective for me.

“We all think our hard is the hardest thing.”

The pair were sentenced to a combined 19 years in prison.

When they were sentenced, the prosecution team wrote a memo that read: “The jury's unanimous verdict sets the record straight: Todd and Julie Chrisley are career swindlers who have made a living by jumping from one fraud scheme to another, lying to banks, stiffing vendors, and evading taxes at every corner.”

US Attorney Ryan K. Buchanan said in a November 21 statement: “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.

"Their lengthy sentences reflect the magnitude of their criminal scheme and should serve as a warning to others tempted to exploit our nation's community banking system for unlawful personal gain."
