Jen Shah is expected to be sentenced for her crimes exactly one month from today. She has already taken a plea deal that could put her in prison no more than 14 years. I can see her trying to get the court to let her spend Christmas with her family. Not sure if that will work out or not. Clearly, she is losing her shit right now. I thought I posted about Jen’s very public meltdown but I can’t find the post. UPDATED: FOUND IT! She was going nuts on some guy after going to dinner with her friends. It was hard to follow. Maybe just some guy who pointed out she should enjoy her dinner because it’s about to prison food for her until her early 60s.
Let Not Forget Todd And Julie Chrisley
ATLANTA — Federal prosecutors say Todd and Julie Chrisley should face nearly 22 years in prison for defrauding community banks out of tens of millions of dollars and then obstructing the investigation against them. In June, federal jury found the couple, who starred in reality show “Chrisley Knows Best,” guilty on charges of criminal bank fraud and tax evasion. Prosecutors said the Chrisleys took out $30 million in fraudulent bank loans to fund their lavish lifestyle and extravagant spending even before they become reality television stars.
They used a film production company they controlled to hide income to keep the IRS from collecting unpaid taxes owed by Todd Chrisley, prosecutors said.Both Chrisleys were charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States and tax fraud. Julie Chrisley was also charged with wire fraud and obstruction of justice. The Chrisleys maintained they did nothing wrong and someone else had control of their finances.
The sentencing hearing for all defendants in this case is scheduled for Nov. 21 at 10:00 a.m.
On Tuesday, Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Mark Winne obtained a sentencing memo filed Monday in which prosecutors recommend a “lengthy period of incarceration” for the couple.
“The seriousness of the Chrisleys’ crimes cannot be understated. After they defrauded community banks out of tens of millions of dollars, they hid millions of dollars from the IRS, all while going on television to boast about how much they spend on designer clothes,” prosecutors wrote in the document. “And when they learned that they were under investigation for those crimes, they involved their own family members and friends to obstruct justice.”
According to the memo, Todd Chrisleys crimes warrant up to nearly 22 years in prison. Prosecutors are recommending up to 13 years for Julie Chrisley.
