Todd and Julie Chrisley’s jail release dates have already been moved up by a few months, but their lawyer thinks he can get even more time off their terms. Last year, the Chrisley Knows Best stars were found guilty of bank theft and avoiding taxes and given a total of 19 years in federal prison. They went to jail in January.
Julie was sent to FMC Lexington in Kentucky, and Todd was sent to FPC Pensacola in Florida. Todd was given a 12-year sentence at first, but federal jail records show that he won’t be released until early 2033. The original term was about two years longer. Someone else on Twitter also wrote a post about their line getting shorter.
Todd and Julie Chrisley’s prison sentences have been shortened:

Julie got a seven-year sentence, but records show that she will be free in mid-October 2028, which is one year and three months before the end of her term. Jay Surgent, the couple’s lawyer, thinks that even more time will be taken off of his clients’ sentences when the new sentencing rules go into effect.
Neama Rahmani, the head of West Coast Trial Lawyers and a former federal prosecutor, told Insider that federal sentencing guidelines are based on a point system that takes into account a person’s criminal background and how serious the crime they did was.
Earlier this year, the US Sentencing Commission considered changing the current federal sentencing rules. They said that people in jail who have never been in trouble with the law should lose two points, which would make their terms much shorter.
If Congress doesn’t stop the change, the new tax payments will begin in November.
“Two point credits are coming for [Todd and Julie], with the implementation of Sentencing Guidelines Reform on Nov. 1, 2023, which will further reduce their sentences,” Surgent told Insider.

What About The People Who Are Already In Jail?
Rahmani, on the other hand, doesn’t know how the changes would affect federal prisoners who are already in the system. If the points system were used backwards, suddenly thousands of criminals would be eligible for shorter sentences. This would be a nightmare for the government.
The Chrisleys have never been in trouble with the law before, so they will be hoping that the new rules also apply to them. But that’s not clear yet.
