Arrest August 2019
On August 14, 2019, Todd and Julie Chrisley were arrested in Atlanta on a multi-count indictment. Initial charges included tax evasion, wire fraud, bank fraud and conspiracy. According to the indictment, between approximately 2007 and 2012, Todd and Julie allegedly used Chrisley Asset Management to seek bank loans to be used to buy and sell foreclosed properties. Prosecutors alleged the couple provided false information to secure these bank loans. This false information would have drastically inflated the couple’s net worth.
According to the indictment, Todd and Julie:
” Conspired to submit false material to financial institutions, such as fabricated bank statements and false personal financial statements, to obtain millions of dollars in loans, many of which they used for their personal benefit. “
As one example, the indictment alleges that in November 2007, Todd and Julie submitted a fabricated financial statement to a bank. From the indictment:
” When the bank employee requested bank statements, co-conspirator A [un angajat care se pare că lucrează pentru familia Chrisley] sent Todd Chrisley and Julie Chrisley a fabricated bank statement showing that Todd and Julie Chrisley had $776,509.52 on deposit with Merrill Lynch.
In response, Todd Chrisley told his co-conspirator, “You guys are crazy geniuses [sic]!!! Just make it look like 4mil+ “
In reality, the couple did not have a Merrill Lynch bank account at the time. When they got one later, it contained no more than $17,000.
In addition, Todd and Julie also allegedly dodged federal tax bills. Their accountant was also indicted.
Todd and Julie claimed in a social media post that the illegal acts were committed by a former “trusted employee” who stole from the family and committed the crimes without their knowledge. They were forced to appear in court and post $100,000 in unsecured bond. They were also ordered to restrict their travel to Atlanta and California to only taping the TV show.
A new indictment was filed in February 2022. In addition to the previously specified charges of presenting false documents when applying for loans, the indictment further accuses the pair of using a film production company to hide $2 million in unpaid taxes owed to the IRS. That $2 million tax bill was allegedly related to earnings from their TV show that the couple hid in a production company they control called 7C’s Productions.
In this updated indictment, Todd and Julie were each charged with one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States, one count of tax fraud, and FIVE counts of bank fraud. They pleaded not guilty.
Their federal criminal trial began in May 2022.
In 2016, the Chrisleys paid $1.6 million for a house in Nashville. In June 2019, the couple bought a $3.4 million home outside of Nashville. Amid their alleged ongoing financial crimes, they were forced to put the house up for sale just two months later. Their original asking price was $4.7 million.
