Reality stars Todd and Julie Chrisley received s?nt?nc?s Monday for their convict?ons on charges of bank fr?ud and t?x ev?sion.
He was s?nt?nc?d to 12 years in pr?s?n, plus 16 months on probation. His wife and co-star on Chrisley Knows Best was handed down a sentence of seven years, as well as 16 months of probation.
In June, the couple were convicted of having inflated their net worth in order to secure more than $30 million in fraudulent loans. They were also found to have dodged their taxes since as early as 2009 and to have hidden their earnings from the show from the IRS. Julie was also found guilty of committing wire fraud and obstruction of justice.
The Chrisleys denied any wrongdoing, and their lawyer said they had been unaware that an employee had been defrauding the government.
