The life of reality television show performers is often erratic. While such behavior is interesting on television, it can also land some stars in hot water.
Reality television stars Todd and Julie Chrisley, who last month were sentenced to prison for fraud and tax crimes, will be heading to Florida to serve their time, according to documents from the US Marshals Service that were recently filed with the court.
The couple have been ordered to report to two different federal prisons on January 17, according to the documents.
Todd and Julie Chrisley, best known for their reality series “Chrisley Knows Best,” were found guilty in June of conspiracy to defraud banks out of more than $30 million in fraudulent loans. In addition, they were found guilty of several tax crimes, including attempting to defraud the Internal Revenue Service.
Todd Chrisley, who was sentenced to 12 years in prison with three years of supervised release, has been assigned to serve time at FPC Pensacola, a minimum-security facility in Pensacola, Florida.
His wife Julie Chrisley was sentenced to seven years in prison and three years of supervised release.
She is assigned to FCI Marianna SCP, a “medium security federal correctional institution with an adjacent minimum security satellite camp” in Marianna, Florida, according to the prison’s website.
The prisons are about a two-hour drive from each other on Florida’s Panhandle.
“Chrisley Knows Best” debuted in 2014 on the USA Network. New episodes, filmed prior to the trial, will debut sometime next year.
In a statement provided to CNN after their sentencing, the family’s attorney, Alex Little, of Burr & Forman LLP, said, in part: “Yesterday was a difficult day for the Chrisley family.
But Todd and Julie are people of faith, and that faith gives them strength as they appeal their convictions.”
