His wife Julie was found guilty of wire fraud and obstruction of justice and was sentenced to seven years with 16 months probation.
Their accountant, Peter Tarantino, was sentenced to three years in prison. He was found guilty of filing two false corporate tax returns on behalf of the Chrisleys’ company.
Chrisley Knows Best, which premiered on USA Network in 2014, follows the lives of Georgia real estate tycoon Todd Chrisley and his wealthy family. The show was renewed for a 10th season in May, and episodes that were filmed before the convictions will air next year.
