Appeals Court Vacates Julie Chrisley’s Sentence Over Fraud Allegations

In a significant legal development, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has vacated Julie Chrisley’s sentence related to fraud allegations. The court’s decision came after it determined that the evidence used to calculate the loss amount attributed to Julie was insufficient.

“After careful consideration, and with the benefit of oral argument, we affirm the district court on all issues except for the loss amount attributed to Julie,” the court stated.

“The district court did not identify the evidence it relied on to hold Julie accountable for losses incurred before 2007, and we cannot independently find it in the record. As per to the source Yahoo

So we vacate Julie’s sentence and remand solely for the district court to make the factual findings and calculations necessary to determine loss, restitution, and forfeiture as to Julie and to resentence her accordingly.”

Julie Chrisley, along with her husband Todd, was found guilty in 2022 of conspiring to defraud banks and the IRS out of millions of dollars. While Todd’s conviction was upheld, Julie’s case has been sent back to the district court for reassessment of her sentence.

Following the ruling, their daughter Savannah Chrisley expressed optimism on Instagram, saying, “So basically, what this means is that the appeals court could not find any evidence that attributed this $17 million loss amount to my mother.

And for that I am grateful and I hope and pray that the judge can send her home.”

The Chrisleys, stars of the reality TV show “Chrisley Knows Best,” have been appealing their convictions, alleging prosecutorial errors during the trial.

Their attorney, Alex Little, argued that federal prosecutors allowed false testimony from an IRS officer, which influenced the trial’s outcome.

As Julie awaits resentencing, the legal battle for the Chrisley family continues, with Todd currently serving a 12-year sentence and Julie initially sentenced to 7 years. The appeals court’s decision marks a crucial step in their ongoing fight against the conviction
