Todd and Julie Chrisley are expected to give up Tennessee Mansions amid a fraud case

Amid their $36 million fraud case, Todd and Julie Chrisley also face the likelihood of losing their homes in Tennessee.


According to that New York Postthe Chrisley knows best The couple must give up their two Nashville properties totaling $9 million to pay the $17.2 million restitution ordered by Atlanta United States District Court Judge Eleanor Ross.


“They will unfortunately have to give up many things, including their homes. They won’t be able to afford it,” a source told the outlet. “But her main concern now is her children, especially her youngest boy.”


Todd and Julie share three children — Chase, 26, Savannah, 25, and Grayson, 16. They are also the primary caregivers to their 10-year-old granddaughter Chloe, who is the daughter of Todd’s estranged son Kyle, 31, from his previous marriage.

On Monday, a federal judge sentenced Todd, 54, to 12 years in prison for bank fraud and tax evasion, while Julie, 49, was sentenced to seven years for her involvement in the crimes.


PEOPLE spoke to former federal prosecutor and West Coast Trial Lawyers President Neama Rahmani — who has no connection to the Chrisley case — to confirm the couple is expected to serve “85 percent of their sentence” under federal law.


“And that’s the minimum they have to serve if they’re model inmates,” Rahmani explained. “Unlike states, where inmates can sometimes serve less than half their sentence, federal law gives you only a small reduction for good behavior.”


Rahmani added that the couple, who will start their sentences at the beginning of the new year, most likely received “heavy sentences” because “they didn’t take responsibility even after being convicted”.

Corresponding insiderJulie was emotional during the trial as she recalled a conversation she had with her granddaughter Chloe. “To hear your 10-year-old say she doesn’t want to live if her mother goes away, no child should feel that way,” she shared.


Before her parents’ sentencing, Savannah spoke about the possibility of gaining custody of Chloe and her brother Grayson on Monday’s episode of her podcast Unlocked with Savannah Chrisley.


“It’s just really hard sitting here four days before I go into the courtroom,” she said on the show. “I don’t know what my fate is, what the fate of my family is. I know that it will be very difficult in the short term and I may get home without both of my parents. That’s the odds, that’s the probability, and that’s my new normal.”


She began to get emotional and continued, “I come home Tuesday and have custody of a 16-year-old, I have custody of a 10-year-old, and we’re not spending our first Thanksgiving as a family.”
