Todd, Julie Chrisley felt ‘fear’ before ‘nightmare’ sentencing

Todd Chrisley & Julie Chrisley recorded a “Chrisley Confessions” podcast episode ahead of their sentencing, discussing the “fear” they felt.

“I know in my heart that I am a Christian. I know I believe that God can work miracles … but I still have this fear,” Julie, 49, told listeners in Wednesday’s release, adding that she was “living through a nightmare.”

Todd, 53, later said that while they hadn’t “see[n] justice” when they were convicted of bank fraud & tax evasion in June, they believed God was “going to show it in his time.”

The couple, who were sentenced on Monday to a collective 19 years in prison, went on to explain how their 26-year marriage has stayed strong amid their legal battle.

“When people go through traumatic events, a lot of times they don’t make it,” Julie said. “A lot of times the relationship falls apart because everything is stressful. There’s way added pressures, & people don’t make it.

“I’m grateful that our relationship has grown instead of falling apart,” she continued.

Julie called the couple’s situation a “nightmare.”

The pre-recorded episode dropped two days after Todd was sentenced to 12 years behind bars & Julie to seven, with 16 months of probation each.

The duo subsequently released a statement via lawyer Alex Little.

“Todd & Julie are people of faith, & that faith gives them strength as they appeal their convictions,” the family attorney said on Tuesday of the “difficult day.”

Little added, “Their trial was marred by serious & repeated errors. … Based on these issues, we are optimistic about the road ahead.”

The pair’s show “Chrisley Knows Best” & its spinoff, “Growing Up Chrisley,” were both canceled in the wake of the sentencing.

As for the former reality star’s 16-year-old son, Grayson, & their 10-year-old niece, Chloe, of whom Todd & Julie had custody, Savannah Chrisley is now taking care of them.

“[I”m] trying to navigate how you teach two younger children who aren’t fully developed yet & … get them to underst& the circumstances,” the “Unlocked” podcast host, 25, told listeners on Monday. “That’s a really, really difficult thing.”

Savannah called the custody change the “hardest” part of the sc&al, noting that the little ones need “love & hugs … more than anything.”

As for Lindsie Chrisley, the 33-year-old referred to herself as “brokenhearted” & “crushed in spirit” in a Monday Instagram Story upload.

The half-sisters’ parents were indicted in August 2019 & have continued to maintain their innocence.
