The “Chrisley Knows Best” star shared that he will be accepting questions from listeners during the interview episode.
“Other people that want to interview [me] might say, ‘I know this is probably an uncomfortable question’ — no, we’re good with the truth,” he said. “The truth is not uncomfortable for us.”
Todd and his wife, Julie Chrisley, were sentenced to a combined 19 years in prison on Nov. 21 after being convicted of bank fraud and tax evasion in June.
Todd and Julie were sentenced to 12 and 7 years in prison, respectively, and will both spend 16 months on probation after their release. Todd will serve his sentence at Federal Prison Camp Pensacola and Julie will be held at Federal Correctional Institution Marianna, roughly two and a half hours away.
During an episode of their podcast, “Chrisley Confessions” — that was recorded ahead of their sentencing and aired in November – Julie spoke out about their situation.
“I know in my heart that I am a Christian, I believe God, I believe that God can work miracles, I believe that He will take care of my family, that if I died today, I know where I’m going. But I still have this fear,” Julie told her fans.

“Everyone knows that we’re living through a nightmare… I have been focused on not living in fear.”
After their sentencing, the couple’s attorney told Fox News Digital it “was a difficult day for the Chrisley family. But Todd and Julie are people of faith, and that faith gives them strength as they appeal their convictions. Their trial was marred by serious and repeated errors, including the government lying to jurors about what taxes the couple paid. Based on these issues, we are optimistic about the road ahead.”
Todd and Julie Chrisley rose to fame while starring in a handful of reality TV shows. “Chrisley Knows Best” followed the family’s endeavors beginning in 2014. The show has run for nine seasons, with the 10th, filmed before the federal crimes trial, airing in 2023.
Todd was convicted of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, tax fraud and conspiracy to defraud the United States. Julie was convicted of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, tax fraud and conspiracy to defraud the United States. She was also hit with wire fraud and obstruction of justice charges.
