Todd and Julie Chrisley’s attorney wants to reduce even more time off prison sentence

Todd and Julie Chrisley’s legal representative is optimistic that the couple’s prison sentences will be further reduced following a recent reduction in their jail time. Attorney Jay Surgent stated that they were able to secure a reduction in time for both Todd and Julie. Surgent mentioned that there are changes and recommendations for sentence reduction for nonviolent offenders through the adoption of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. He believes that they should receive two points each, which will further decrease their sentences. Surgent is also working on the appeals for the “Chrisley Knows Best” stars.

The attorney expressed hope and confidence in their appeals, stating that he believes they have a strong case. These comments were made after records from federal prisons revealed that both Todd and Julie’s sentences were shortened by over a year. Todd, the father of five, is now set to be released on January 22, 2033, from Florida’s Federal Prison Camp Pensacola, which is two years earlier than his original 12-year sentence. Julie, on the other hand, will be released on October 19, 2028, from Kentucky’s Federal Medical Center Lexington, 14 months before her seven-year sentence.

In January, Todd, 54, and Julie, 50, began serving their respective prison sentences after being convicted of fraud and tax evasion. Prosecutors accused them of submitting fraudulent documents to banks during loan applications. Todd received a 12-year sentence, while Julie received a seven-year sentence. Julie was also accused of submitting false credit reports and bank statements when attempting to rent a home in California. The couple, who got married in 1996, were found guilty in June 2022 and collectively sentenced to 19 years in prison.

During their time behind bars, their children have spoken out about their parents’ experiences. Savannah Chrisley, their daughter, recently shared that her parents have not spoken to each other since they turned themselves in. It has been an emotional and challenging time for the family. Todd and Julie also have sons Chase and Grayson. In addition, Todd has two children, Lindsie and Kyle, from a previous marriage.

Todd and Julie Chrisley’s attorney is hopeful the couple will have their prison sentences reduced even more after some time was shaved off both of their jail time this week.

“They were able to get some time off for both of them,” lawyer Jay Surgent told People Friday. “There’s going to be the adoption of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, changes, modifications, recommendations for reduction of sentences for nonviolent offenders.

“So [I] don’t know at this point in time, but they should be getting two points a piece for that. So that’ll further reduce their sentences.”

Surgent also said he is working on the “Chrisley Knows Best” alums’ appeals.

“There’s hope,” he shared. “There’s always hope, but I feel as though they have a strong appeal.”

The attorney’s comments come hours after Todd and Julie’s sentences were each shortened by more than a year, according to federal prison records obtained by TheFantasyTimes Friday.

Meanwhile, Julie will be released from Kentucky’s Federal Medical Center Lexington on Oct. 19, 2028, 14 months short of her seven-year sentence.

In January, Todd, 54, and Julie, 50, reported to their respective prisons two months after they were sentenced for fraud and tax evasion.

The mom of three was also alleged to have submitted false credit reports and bank statements when trying to rent a home in California.

The couple — who tied the knot in 1996 — were found guilty of their crimes in June 2022 and sentenced to a combined 19 years behind bars.

Since their incarceration began, Todd and Julie’s children have spoken out about how life has been for their parents behind bars.

The pair’s daughter, Savannah Chrisley, recently revealed that her folks hadn’t spoken to each other since they turned themselves in.

“195 days without a word to each other…” the 26-year-old wrote on her Instagram Stories last month alongside throwback pics of her parents. “My heart is breaking…”

Todd and Julie are also parents to sons Chase, 27, and Grayson, 17. The “Growing Up Chrisley” star is also dad to daughter Lindsie, 33, and son Kyle, 32, both of whom he shares with his ex-wife, Teresa Terry.
