Lindsie Chrisley Reveals She Is 'Deeply Saddened' by Dad Todd and Julie's Financial Crimes Conviction

"Please pray for us during this difficult time and know that I will be back when the time is right," she wrote.

Just a day after Todd Chrisley and Julie Chrisley were found guilty of bank fraud and tax evasion, their oldest daughter, Lindsie Chrisley is speaking out about the verdict. 

The Chrisleys Knows Best alum broke her silence on the issue via a story on her Instagram, according to PEOPLE

The 32-year-old wrote, "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." She went on to share that she would be taking some time off from her podcasts Coffee Convos and The Southern Tea because she took time last week to be with her family.

"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."



 

 

On June 7, 2022, a federal jury found Todd and Julie guilty of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States, and tax fraud, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Julie was also convicted of an additional wire fraud charge. The pair faces up to 30 years in jail. 

Todd and Julie were accused of falsifying documents to secure up to $30 million in bank loans for personal use. Though they were also charged with tax evasion in their home state of Georgia, they were cleared of the charges. 

Lindsie is currently estranged from Todd, 53, and Julie, 49. In 2021, Todd shared that 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."



 

 

Todd and Julie's lawyer, Steve Friedberg said: "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 and her brother Kyle, 30, are Todd's children from a previous marriage.
