Savannah Chrisley reported that she has been given custody of her niece Chloe, 10, and her brother Grayson, 16, following the Monday prison sentence of her parents.
On Monday, Todd and Julie Chrisley—who are well-known to television viewers for their USA Network reality series “Chrisley Knows Best”—were found guilty of fraud and received prison sentences.
The 25-year-old said Tuesday in a brand-new episode of her podcast “Unlocked with Savannah Chrisley” that her younger brother and niece have been given into her custody.
Savannah Chrisley claimed that she was prepared for the trial on Monday,
“I have custody of a 16-year-old and a 10-year-old when I come home on Tuesday, and we spend our first Thanksgiving apart from our families,” she continued.
She sobbed as she said, “I’ve never spent the holidays away from my family. “I simply beg that you come and see where I’m coming from, have some grace for me and my family, and stop with the hurtful words,” the speaker said.
Savannah Chrisley stated that she was “grieving the loss of parents who are still alive” in another scene of the programme and that the family will be applying for an appeal to have the convictions reversed.
Although Todd and Julie also have a son named Chase, who is 26 years old, Savannah Chrisley is their oldest child. Along with his ex-wife Teresa Terry, Todd is also the father of Lindsie, 33, and Kyle, 31. The Chrisleys acquired custody of Kyle’s 10-year-old daughter Chloe in 2013.
Todd and Julie were mindful of their young children throughout their Monday sentence. After hearing the findings, the couple told Insider reporters Azmi Haroun and Haven Orecchio-Egresitz that their sole concern was for their children and how their lives would proceed without them.
When Todd addressed the court and requested that they reduce his wife’s prison sentence, he broke down in tears.
This is a really difficult day for my family, as I’m sure you can tell, Todd said. As harshly as he would be, he said, “My wife Julie should not be punished.”
At the sentencing, Julie sobbed, “I’m most worried for Chloe and Grayson.” “No child should feel like that to hear your 10-year-old say she doesn’t want to live if their mom goes away.
The court ultimately turned down Julie’s request to keep Chloe in her home until she is an adult.
For cheating banks out of more than $30 million by fabricating false financial statements that made them appear wealthier than they actually were, Todd and Julie Chrisley were given a combined 19-year term.
Julie was sentenced to seven years in prison and 16 months on probation, while Todd was given 12 years in prison.
