Savannah Chrisley Reveals Parents Julie and Todd Chrisley's Reactions to Appeal Hearing From Prison

Savannah says her parents are 'hoping for change' from their new appeal hearing.

Julie and Todd Chrisley recently had an appeal hearing, regarding their financial crimes convictions and prison sentences. Now, their daughter Savannah Chrisley has revealed how her parents reacted to the courtroom arguments.

During a new episode of her Unlocked podcast, Savannah shared that her parents were able to listen in on the hearing from their respective prisons. "They listened in on the appeal, they listened to the arguments," she explained, "and now they're back, just sitting there and hoping for change, hoping for something different, hoping for a different outcome."

In November 2022, Julie and her husband Todd were sentenced to serve prison time after their bank fraud and tax evasion convictions. Todd was sentenced to 12 years behind bars while Julie will serve seven years. Both will also be expected to serve 16 months of probation.

Two months after their convictions, the pair each reported to prison to serve their respective sentences. Todd reported to FPC Pensacola in Florida, a minimum security prison camp, while Julie is being held at the Federal Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky.

The new hearing took place on April 19, with Savannah and her siblings Chase Chrisley and Grayson Chrisley present. Their grandmother — Nanny Faye Chrisley — and Savannah's boyfriend Robert Shiver were also there to show support.

The Chrisley's lawyers argued that there was significant misconduct in their case, claiming that "the evidence suggested that the prosecutors here worked in concert with the witness," according to PEOPLE. However, the federal attorney's rebuttal stated that there is no case at all, noting that "the evidence was overwhelming at trial that the Chrisleys had taken a number of steps to evade the IRS and they conspired to evade the IRS."

"So yes, if there are credible allegations and some evidence proffered about any sort of government misconduct a hearing should be had," the U.S. assistant attorney said. "That's simply not what we have in this case." At this time, there is no news on the outcome of the hearing.
