Todd and Julie were also reportedly hiding millions of dollars made from their hit reality show, which began back in 2014. The couple have also been accused of hiding $500,000 in taxes owed by Todd since 2009.
The couple are said to have been actively evading taxes since 2009.
Todd’s attorney, Bruce H. Morris, claimed that they were victims and that a man named Mark Braddock was responsible for the entire fraud without their knowledge while overseeing Todd’s company, Chrisley Asset Management. They were reportedly unaware of this until they fired him in 2012.
Morris says Braddock went to the US Attorney’s Office and was granted federal immunity in exchange for evidence against the Chrisleys.
Keri Farley, a special agent for the FBI Atlanta, said: “As today’s finding demonstrates, when you lie, cheat and steal, the judiciary is blind to your fame, fortune and position.”
“In the end, driven by greed, the guilty verdict on all charges for these three defendants proves once again that financial crimes don’t pay,” Farley continued.
