After being found guilty of fraud, two reality TV stars received lengthy prison terms. Although Todd Chrisley presented himself as a prosperous real estate magnate, his extravagant lifestyle was actually supported by tax fraud and false bank loans.
His fantasy world has now crumbled, and he is now facing jail time.
The USA Network program Chrisley Knows Best premiered in 2014 and featured southern real estate agent Chrisley, his wife Julie, their six children, and Todd’s heavy drinker mother.
The family’s business dealings and connections were the main emphasis of the program, but it somehow omitted the information that the pair was evading taxes and swindling banks out of more than $30 million in fraudulent loans.

Authorities in Georgia charged them with tax evasion and wire fraud midway through season seven. The Chrisleys were indicted on federal charges in May, but the program continued.
On November 21, Todd Chrisley received a 12-year prison term, while Julie received a 7-year sentence.
The last few episodes will run next year for anyone who is still interested, but the show has now officially been canceled.
A Twitter user said,” Todd and Julie should go to jail for the crimes they committed. I don’t care who you are, you do the crime, you do the time. That goes for everyone. So if Hunter did the crime he should do the time. Let the law handle it.”
Another one said, “Greedy people. Hopefully all those new IRS agents go after criminals like them and recoup some of Biden’s spending.”
