Todd and Julie Chrisley were found guilty of bank fraud and tax evasion by a federal jury.

  • Todd and Julie Chrisley’s trial resulted in a verdict.
  • The jury’s deliberations began on June 3.
  • The pair was found guilty of bank fraud and IRS evasion.

Todd and Julie Chrisley were found guilty on all charges stemming from a multi-year plot to cheat banks and conceal their funds from the IRS.

Todd Chrisley was found guilty by a federal jury in Atlanta of conspiracy to conduct bank fraud, bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States, and tax fraud.

Julie Chrisley was found guilty of bank fraud, conspiracy to conduct bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States, tax fraud, and wire fraud.

Peter Tarantino, their former attorney, was convicted of conspiring to defraud the United States by deliberately filing fraudulent tax forms.

The Chrisleys may spend up to 30 years in jail.

The celebrity couple, who rose to fame in 2013 when USA Network picked up their reality show “Chrisley Knows Best,” were accused by federal prosecutors of falsifying financial records in order to apply for more than $30 million in loans, which they used to fund a lavish lifestyle they couldn’t afford.

When the banks found on, the Chrisleys declared bankruptcy, getting away from a $20 million debt. Prosecutors said that the couple went on to hide money from the IRS with the help of Tarantino.

On May 17, jurors began hearing testimony in the case, and the trial lasted nearly three weeks.

On June 3, they began deliberating.
Chrisleys placed the blame on a former business partner.
The Chrisleys’ principal line of defence was that the individual who handed them in to the FBI was likewise a con artist.

Mark Braddock, a co-owner of Todd Chrisley’s real estate foreclosure company, Chrisley Asset Management, admits to creating bogus paperwork to present to banks in order to get loans on behalf of himself and the Chrisleys.

He also acknowledged to imitating Todd Chrisley several times.

Todd Chrisley’s attorney, Bruce Morris, attempted to persuade jurors that emails from his client’s account, which clearly show fraud, may have been sent by Braddock, who was granted immunity by the court.

Braddock sent the emails to the authorities, and Morris said they may have been forged.

Braddock said that he had an affair with Todd Chrisley for a year and committed fraud on his behalf because he still had affections for him.

In court, Bruce Morris stated that Chrisley denied the romance and that Braddock was “obsessed” with Chrisley.

The Chrisleys’ and Tarantino’s attorneys did not immediately respond to calls for comment.
