PENSACOLA, FLORIDA: The 'Chrisley Knows Best' stars Todd and Julie Chrisley has arrived at the federal prisons they were scheduled to report to serve their combined jail term of 19 years. According to reports, Todd Chrisley surrendered to the Federal Prison Camp (FPC) Pensacola in Florida, and his wife Julie Chrisley arrived at the Federal Medical Center (FMC) Lexington in Kentucky on Tuesday, January 17.


Todd, 53, was spotted hiding his face with a pillow, traveling in a Range Rover, while turning himself in at the Federal Prison Camp to serve his twelve years sentence. His wife, Julie, 49, who traveled in a black Cadillac Escalade, will begin her jail term of seven years. Both facilities are situated 650 miles apart, according to Daily Mail.

Julie was accompanied by her father Harvey Hughes who appeared to be crying through the window. A short time after her arrival at the Kentucky prison, her husband surrendered at the Florida prison. A prison camp near the FMC Lexington with minimum security that is designed to exclusively house females where Julie will reportedly be serving her sentence, the federal prison is an 'administrative security medical center' for both men and women, as per Prison Pro.  


FPC Pensacola where Todd will presumably carry out his twelve-year sentence is a prison that has housed inmates who are popular which includes Chris Collins, who was taken into custody following insider trading but Donald Trump, the former US President pardoned him later. According to WGRZ-TV, the prison camp is comparatively 'comfortable' as the broadcaster is told by an expert that "if you have to do federal prison time, that's the place to be."

He described the camp premises and said, "There aren't any barbed wire fences and so on. There's obviously security and guards but it's not a place that you're going to find serious, dangerous criminals and so on." Though the amenities and facilities offered are better than other prisons, Todd is allowed to keep and own items of personal property that "do not exceed the value of $100 per item," according to Daily Mail.


A day before the Chrisleys reported to their respective prisons, the couple was spotted shopping on Monday, January 16, in Tennessee as Julie was spotted along with her daughter Savannah, 25, and her mother Pam Hughes, shopping groceries and stopping at three different furniture stores, and Todd spotted heading to a post office.

With charges of financial crimes including bank fraud, obstruction of justice, tax evasion, wire fraud, and conspiring to defraud the IRS, the reality show couple's spin-off series and shows were canceled in August 2019. Along with the combined 19-year jail term, the duo will be serving a 16-month probation period upon their release.
