Julie Chrisley and her husband Todd Chrisley recently made headlines after being found guilty of bank fraud and tax evasion and receiving a combined 19-year prison sentence. However, Julie recently expressed her concerns as their time in prison approaches.
The two are scheduled to report to their respective Florida prisons on January 17. On the most recent episode of the Chrisley Confessions podcast, Julie discussed her situation with the fiancée of her son Chase Chrisley and future daughter-in-law, Emmy Medders. She compared her situation to that of Medders’ mother, who is the full-time caretaker of her husband, who has ALS.
“There is that possibility of my husband and I being separated,” Julie said. “But there’s a difference between my husband and I being separated for a period of time and having to say goodbye forever.
It almost makes me feel ashamed that I’m even worried. Unless the good Lord intervenes, [your mom is] going to have to say goodbye to her husband and she won’t see him again this side of heaven.”
Todd received a longer punishment of 12 years in prison and 16 months of probation while Julie received a seven-year prison term. Julie will also have to complete 16 months of probation once released.
Julie continued, “I think it puts things into perspective for me because we all think our hard is the hardest thing. You’re entitled to feel how you feel.” Julie claimed that she is going to shift her attention to what will come after her release from prison in a desperate attempt to deal with her new normal.
Todd, on the other hand, remained somewhat silent about his time in jail. Stay tuned to Thirsty to get more updates regarding this.
