On June 7, after nearly three weeks of testimony from prosecutors and witnesses, an Atlanta federal jury found Todd and Julie guilty of conspiring to swindle community banks out of $30 million in fraudulent loans, and of failing to pay taxes or file tax returns from 2013 to 2016. They pleaded guilty but were indicted in 2019. The couple could spend up to 30 years behind bars with an October sentencing.

“We did want to come on today and let everyone know that it’s a very sad, heartbreaking time for our family right now,” Todd said June 16 on the couple’s Chrisley Confessions podcast. We remain firm in our faith, and trust God to do the best for us because God is a miracle worker. We are waiting for that.

Todd said, “I’m sure all of you guys want to know everything that is happening in our lives. I need to ask you to respect the fact that it’s not permitted to be discussed at this time.” It will all come together.”
