After being found guilty in a fraud case, Todd Chrisley speaks out
On June 7, a jury in Atlanta found the Chrisleys guilty of the charges. Todd claimed they were unable to discuss the case in the June 16 episode of the couple’s podcast Chrisley Confessions. He and Julie did thank the messages, flowers, and food gifts that came from their supporters in return for their support.
“It has been a whirlwind,” Todd said.
I have to ask that you respect the fact that we aren’t allowed to discuss it at the moment because I know that all of you want to know every little thing that is happening in our lives. “A time will come when everything is discussed.”
He continued by saying that they were relying on their faith and were appreciative of the assistance they had received. The support they have received from everyone, Julie and her husband said, is greatly appreciated.
Todd continued, “The love that is spread so far throughout this country is what is truly helping us to get up each day.
On June 23, “Chrisley Knows Best” will premiere new episodes.
