Todd & Julie Chrisley Begin Prison Stint in Tax Fraud Case
Specifically, the Growing Up Chrisley star questioned why Todd and Julie were sentenced to serve 12 and seven years behind bars, respectively, for their tax fraud case, while The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City‘s Jen Shah was sentenced to serve six-and-a-half-years in prison for her own fraud case.
While the three reality stars were all sentenced for similar reasons—Todd and Julie for wire fraud and conspiracy to commit bank fraud, and Jen for conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering in connection with a nationwide telemarketing scheme—Savannah said she thinks the differences in the cases come down to the victim statements.
“There were hundreds of victims who were elderly, and people that provided statements that lost their homes, threatened to end their lives,” the 25-year-old stated said of Jen’s case. “There were so many different things, and she got six and a half years. Six and a half years, make that make sense.”
But unlike the Bravo star—who pleaded guilty before her case went to trial in July 2022—Savannah stated that her family is “standing by our truth that it is not guilty,” adding, “There are no victims.”

On the podcast episode—which was recorded before Todd and Julie reported to prison on Jan. 17—Julie went on to note that during her and Todd’s trial, “There were no victim statements read. There were no victim statements received, to our knowledge.”
That, specifically, is exactly where Savannah said that “none of it adds up.”
“To me, there’s more to it,” Savannah concluded. “And from this, I have committed myself to figuring out what that is and for us to get to the other side of this so that we can help other people who are going through things like this.”
Jen is expected to report to prison on Feb. 17.
