Reality TV personalities Todd and Julie Chrisley, famous for their show ‘Chrisley Knows Best,’ were found guilty of tax evasion and bank fraud in June 2022.
They began their prison sentences in January 2023. Todd was sentenced to 12 years in Florida’s Federal Prison Camp Pensacola, while Julie received a seven-year sentence at Kentucky’s Federal Medical Center in Lexington.
Recently, it was reported that both Todd and Julie have had their release dates adjusted. Todd is now scheduled for release on January 22, 2033, nearly two years earlier than his original 12-year sentence. Julie’s new release date is October 19, 2028, which is one year and three months sooner than her initial seven-year sentence.
Julie and Todd Chrisley, who reported to prison for earlier this year to 12 and seven years respectively in their tax fraud case, are being released early:

The couple’s attorney, Jay Surgent, commented on the reductions, stating:
“Without a doubt, Todd and Julie are model incarcerated individuals who received exorbitant sentences. I believe Todd is down to 10 years, and Julie is now at 5 years.”
Surgent also mentioned the potential for further sentence reductions due to new sentencing guidelines introduced in November.

Factors in Sentence Reductions
Inmates often see their sentences reduced based on various factors, such as good behavior and participation in prison programs.
Eligible federal inmates can receive up to 54 days of “good conduct time” off for each year of their sentence, according to the Bureau of Prisons.
Todd and Julie’s children, Savannah and Chase Chrisley, have previously voiced concerns about their parents’ treatment in prison. Savannah recently claimed that prison guards have been shutting off the air conditioning and padlocking the ice machines during hot weather.
She also mentioned experiencing retaliation for speaking out against what she described as “inhumane” conditions. Despite the challenges, the family is determined to raise awareness and advocate for change.
