The Chrisleys gained fame with their show Chrisley Knows Best, which follows their tight-knit, bustling family.
Federal prosecutors said the couple engaged in a massive bank fraud scheme, then hid their wealth from tax authorities while flaunting their lavish lifestyle.
“They built an empire on the lie that their wealth came from dedication and hard work,” the plaintiffs wrote in the preliminary court filing at the time of the ruling.
“The jury’s unanimous verdict sets the record straight: Todd and Julie Chrisley are career frauds and made a living by jumping from one scam scheme to another, lying to banks, and evading taxes around every corner.”
Todd’s attorneys argued in a court filing that he should not face more than nine years in prison.
Jolie’s lawyers said the reasonable punishment for her would be probation on special terms and she would not have jail time.
Al Chrisley was convicted in June of bank fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy to defraud the IRS. Julie Chrisley was also convicted of fraud and obstruction of justice.
Peter Tarantino, the 60-year-old accountant the couple hired, was found guilty of conspiracy to defraud the IRS and knowingly filing false tax returns.
He was sentenced to three years in prison, followed by three years of supervised release.
Prosecutors said the Chrisley family provided fraudulent documents to banks and managed to secure more than $30 million in fraudulent loans.
Once this scheme collapsed, they gave up their responsibility to repay the loans when Todd Chrisley declared bankruptcy.
While bankrupt, they started their reality show and “flaunt their wealth and lifestyle to the American public,” prosecutors wrote, then hid the millions they made from the show from the IRS.
Prosecutors argued that the Chrisley family also provided a false document to a grand jury that was investigating their crimes and then persuaded friends and family members to lie under oath during their trial.
Neither of them showed any remorse, prosecutors wrote, and instead blamed others for their criminal behavior.
“The Chrisley family is unique because of the diverse and widespread range of their fraudulent behavior and the extent to which they engaged in fraud and obstructive behavior over an extended period of time,” prosecutors said.

Todd’s attorneys said in a filing that the government never presented any evidence that he intended to defraud the banks, and that the amount of loss calculated was incorrect.
They also noted that the crimes were committed long ago and said he had no serious criminal history and had medical conditions “that would have made imprisonment disproportionately harsh.”
His lawyers have also sent letters from friends and co-workers that show “a history of good deeds and striving to help others.”
They argued that people who depended on Todd—including his mother and several people working on his television shows—would be harmed while he was in prison.
They urged the judge to grant him a prison sentence below the guideline, followed by supervised release and restitution.
Jolie’s lawyers maintain that she played a minimal role in the conspiracy and was not involved when the loans discussed in the sentencing documents were obtained.
She has no previous convictions, is an asset to her community, and has “unusual family obligations,” her lawyers wrote, asking for a sentence of probation, compensation, and community service.
