Todd and Julie Chrisley talked about how they were doing in their last Chrisley Confessions podcast recorded before they began their prison terms for tax fraud on Tuesday, January 17. They explained that even though they were having a "rough week," they were attempting to keep everything "in perspective."
Julie, 50, said she was feeling "ok" throughout the week, despite the fact that the rest of the week had been "rough." Todd, 53, added that others are definitely struggling much worse. "Some people are asking, "God, why has my child been diagnosed with cancer?"
Todd seemed to be optimistic that the courts would work out in their favor, and that he knew that so many more people are confronting bigger issues than they are currently facing. "I know that this may not be my destiny for a moment, but I also have faith that the appellate system will see this as it is."
Todd said they're both praying for what God has in store for them at the end of the day.
The couple received a few messages from listeners at the end of the episode. One caller asked if there was anything that their fans could do to assist them in their legal issues. "Prayer is the greatest gift you can ever give anyone."
Todd explained that while it was fine that a fan wanted to send a petition, he didn't want to bombard the judge with additional letters, and he suggested a prayer group be a wonderful way to assist them. “You just have to hope and pray to God that when one division of the judicial system fails, the next level, which is the appellate court, recognizes the shortcomings and corrects them,,” he said.
Todd and Julie both received 12- and 7-year prison terms on Tuesday. Julie is serving at the Kentucky Federal Medical Center, while Todd is serving at the Florida Federal Prison Camp Pensacola.
