Julie Chrisley’s Prison Sentence Thrown Out By Appeals Court

Julie Chrisley’s prison sentence has been thrown out by an appeals court after the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals did not find evidence to prove that she was involved in the bank fraud scheme which put her and her husband, Todd Chrisley, behind bars.

The couple are serving a combined 19-year sentence for bank fraud and tax evasion. The couple were indicted in 2019 on charges of tax evasion, bank and wire fraud and conspiracy.

“After careful consideration, and with the benefit of oral argument, we affirm the district court on all issues except for the loss amount attributed to Julie,” the judges wrote in their ruling. “The district court did not identify the evidence it relied on to hold Julie accountable for losses incurred before 2007, and we cannot independently find it in the record. So we vacate Julie’s sentence and remand solely for the district court to make the factual findings and calculations necessary to determine loss, restitution, and forfeiture as to Julie and to resentence her accordingly.”

The news means that the reality star could soon be returning home.
