Lindsie Chrisley is breaking the silence over her parents Todd Chrisley and Julie Chrisley were found guilty of bank fraud and tax evasion.
In a post to her Instagram Story, Lindsie gave her true feelings on the matter this past Wednesday morning.
Lindsie Chrisley Breaks Silence On Parents Todd And Julie’s Conviction For Bank Fraud And Tax Evasion
“I know most of you are expecting to hear from me on my podcasts this week as I took time to be with my family last week,” wrote Lindsie, 32. “The verdict is not what I had hoped or prayed for, and I am deeply saddened for myself, my son, and my family as a whole.”
“Please pray for us during this difficult time and know that I will be back when the time is right,” she wrote. “Thank you for your continued love and support.”
Lindsie is currently estranged from Todd, 53, and Julie, 49. In 2021, Todd told PeopleTV’s Reality Check how Lindsie was a “catalyst” in the family incurring tax evasion charges in the state of Georgia.
He added that there are, “certain things in life that I don’t think you get past. And unfortunately, I think that’s where Lindsie and I are.”
A federal jury found Todd and Julie guilty of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States and tax fraud, on Tuesday, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Julie was also convicted of an additional wire fraud charge. The two face up to 30 years in jail.
The verdict comes after Todd and Julie were accused of falsifying documents to secure up to $30 million in bank loans for personal use.
The couple was also recently charged with tax evasion in their home state of Georgia but were cleared of the charges.
On Tuesday, Todd and Julie’s lawyer, Steve Friedberg, told the outlet, “Both Chrisleys are devastated and disappointed with the verdict and will be pursuing an appeal. Julie and Todd are so grateful for the love and support shown by their family, friends, and fans. They both remain strong in their faith and will continue the ‘fight’ until they are vindicated.”
He added, “They have their priorities in order and are currently concentrating on the welfare of their children and Todd’s mother, Elizabeth Faye Chrisley.”
Todd and Julie have four children, Chase, 26; Savannah, 24, and Grayson, 16. Lindsie along with her brother Kyle, 30, are Todd’s children from a previous marriage.
