Todd and Julie Chrisley to be released from prison early

Todd and Julie Chrisley to be released from prison early

They have had time taken off their sentences

Todd and Julie Chrisley have had their sentences reduced and are due to be released from prison early.

The reality TV stars, who have been married for over twenty years, were jailed after being found guilty of fraud and tax evasion.

Prosecutors alleged that the couple had submitted fake documents to banks when they applied for loans.

They also accused Julie of submitting false credit reports and bank statements when applying to rent a home in California.

The couple were found guilty of of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States and tax fraud, and Todd was sentenced to twelve years in prison, while Julie was given seven - making it a total of 19 years in prison.

The pair later announced they would be appealing their sentences, releasing a statement through lawyer Alex Little that said: “Todd and Julie are people of faith, and that faith gives them strength as they appeal their convictions.”

It added: “Their trial was marred by serious and repeated errors. Based on these issues, we are optimistic about the road ahead.”

However, Todd and Julie have had time taken off their sentences since their initial sentencing in 2022.

Federal prison records, which were later confirmed by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, indicate that Todd's release date from Federal Prison Camp Pensacola is set as 22 January 2033.

This is two years less than the full twelve year term.

They also indicate that Julie is scheduled for release from Federal Medical Center Lexington is 19 October 2028 - 14 months shy of the seven year term she was handed.

The pair's attorney Jay Surgent told Insider: “Without a doubt, Todd and Julie are model incarcerated individuals who received exorbitant sentences. I believe Todd is down to 10 years, and Julie is now at five years.”

Surgent also thinks that new sentencing guidelines beginning in November will reduce the pair's sentences further.

According to the BBC, quite a few prison sentences are partially served behind bars, while the rest can be done on community licence.

The licence often requires offenders to follow a set of rules which, if broken, could send them back to prison.

In a response to their sentencing on their podcast, the couple said they would 'live everyday as if it were their last'.

Reading a quote from author Priscilla Shirer, Julie, 49, said: “Age is just a number, and since we don’t know our death date, we have to live every day as if it’s our last.”

Todd then said: “Yesterday doesn’t matter. Today is what we have.

“Tomorrow belongs to God because we’re not promised tomorrow.”

And their daughter, Lindsie Chrisley, would often share updates on how her parents were doing in prison - revealing in April some of her 'biggest concerns'.
