WILLIAMSON COUNTY, TENNESSEE: Julie Chrisley will reportedly be held responsible for tidying up her prison cell and maintaining the highest sanitation or her waistline will suffer. Besides her prison duties, Chrisley is also liable for waking up at 6 am daily to make her bed as well as sweep, mop, empty trash, and guarantee her jail cell is hygienic and sanitary for official inmate counts.

According to the Federal Medical Center Lexington's inmate handbook ascertained by RadarOnline, the 'Chrisley Knows Best' star and her cellmate must keep their small cell neat because their meal rotation depends on it. "Unit meal rotation is ordinarily based on weekly sanitation ratings of each unit," the handbook reads. "The unit with the highest sanitation is called first, and the unit with the lowest rating is called last." Chrisley’s responsibilities not just include cleaning her bed, trash, and floors but also ensuring that the lockers, shelves, and chairs in her cell are adhering to the rules set up by the authorities.

"Lockers must be neatly arranged inside and out, and all shelving must be neat and clean. Chairs are assigned to each cell, and will not be defaced or marked in any manner by the inmate," the handbook continues, as per the outlet. "Everyone is responsible for cleaning up after themselves." Another rule outlines that "sexually suggestive photographs are NOT authorized for display outside of the individual locker or cabinet."

Her cell door must remain closed at the time of her absence. Moreover, she's not allowed to use cardboard boxes or paper containers as storage. Upon her arrival at the Kentucky prison, the disgraced reality star was asked to immediately check and report any damages in her cell. If she failed to do so, she could be financially liable for them when later spotted by the officers during their count, as per RadarOnline.

Her official count schedule reveals that there are five counts every 24 hours. Chrisley is "expected to be standing bedside during official counts held at 4 pm and 9 pm on weekdays, and 10 am, 4 pm, and 10 pm on weekends and holidays," as well as for any emergency count. The handbook also states that "inmates must actually be seen at all counts, even if the inmate must be awakened" unless "the inmates are on out-counts in areas such as Food Service, Health Services, Visiting, etc."

Julie and her husband, Todd Chrisley, who checked into separate prisons earlier this week after being convicted of defrauding banks out of more than $30 million, are serving seven and 12 years behind bars, respectively.
