Todd Chrisley’s family are taking the time to be there for him as he serves his 12-year prison sentence.
Over the weekend, the “Chrisley Knows Best” alum — who is currently behind bars at the Federal Correctional Institute in Pensacola, Florida — was visited by his daughter Lindsie Chrisley and mother, Nanny Faye. , according to Entertainment Tonight.
Lindsie, 33, apparently opened up about their “impromptu trip”, sharing that people were wondering why she was there.
“Last weekend there was a thread about people trying to figure out what beach I was on and why I was there,” she said during her “Southern Tea” podcast on Wednesday, by AND.
“If it was my parents’ beach house, if it was a new condo.”
Nanny and Lindsie’s trip to Florida comes just days after Todd and his wife, Julie Chrisley, reported to their respective jails on January 17 after being sentenced to 19 years in prison for fraud and tax evasion.
While Todd spends his time in Florida, Julie, 50, has begun serving her seven-year sentence at Federal FMC Lexington in Kentucky.
Once the couple are released, they will also each have to serve 16 months of probation.
Since Todd and Julie have been behind bars, their children have been candid about how the transition has been for them.
Lindsie – who Todd shares with his ex-wife Teresa Terry – shared on her podcast that although ‘the outcome wasn’t what we wanted’, she’s glad there ‘is a sense of peace and closure and now we have the ability to be able to adapt. »
However, Savannah Chrisley, Todd and Julie’s eldest daughter, has confessed that her “life is falling apart” without her parents.
“We kind of had to say goodbye to my parents for a little while, for the foreseeable future. And it was really, really, really hard,” she said on her “Unlocked” podcast on Tuesday.
The 25-year-old also shared on social media that she will “fight forever” for Julie, adding: “I love you mum”.
Todd and Julie were found guilty last June of a series of related charges, including aiding and abetting the filing of false tax returns. Prosecutors also accused the couple of submitting false documents to banks when applying for a loan and submitting false credit reports and bank statements when attempting to rent a home in California.
Todd and Julie maintained their innocence and appealed their conviction.
