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. The couple, who was indicted in 2019, had pleaded not guilty to the charges. They face up to 30 years in prison with a sentencing set for October.
“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 still hold steadfast in our faith and we trust that God will do what he does best because God’s a miracle worker. That’s what we’re holding out for.”
Todd continued, “I know all of you guys are wanting to know every detail that is going on in our lives and I have to ask that you respect that we’re not allowed to talk about it at present time. There will come a time.”
