The television personalities were first charged with 12 counts of wire fraud, conspiracy to conduct bank fraud, and conspiracy to defraud the United States in August of 2019, but they pled not guilty. However, on June 7, they were convicted guilty on all counts.

According to prosecutors acquired by ABC News, the Chrisleys allegedly submitted forged paperwork to banks while requesting loans. Julie also tried to rent a property in California using a bogus credit report and fraudulent bank records.

Furthermore, prosecutors claimed that they utilized a firm they owned to disguise revenue in order to prevent the IRS from collecting delinquent taxes owed by Todd.

Peter Tarantino, their former attorney, was also found guilty on several connected offenses, including defrauding the US and submitting fraudulent tax returns with intent.

Todd’s attorney, Bruce Morris, expressed disappointment with the conviction and stated that he plans to appeal. The married couple was permitted to stay free on bond, but they were subjected to location monitoring and house confinement by US District Judge Eleanor Ross.
As per the ruling received by the publication on Tuesday, they must also notify their probation supervisors of any spending above $1,000. The Chrisleys, as well as their former attorney, will be sentenced on October 6.
