Todd and Julie Chrisley, the stars of the Chrisley Knows Best reality TV series on USA Network, were sentenced to prison Monday for a conspiracy to defraud banks of over $30 million in fraudulent loans and attempting to defraud the IRS. Todd Chrisley was sentenced to 12 years in prison and Julie Chrisley to seven years.

"The Chrisleys have built an empire based on the lie that their wealth came from dedication and hard work," prosecutors wrote. "The jury's unanimous verdict sets the record straight: Todd and Julie Chrisley are career swindlers who have made a living by jumping from one fraud scheme to another, lying to banks, stiffing vendors, and evading taxes at every corner."

It is good to see some rich jerks brought to justice. Needs to happen to a lot more of them.

Donald Trump in every detail. Twelve years sounds about right.

I avoid reality TV but saw some episodes of Chrisley Knows Best because I used Law and Order as background noise when it was on USA Network all the time.

I have to admit it is a mildly entertaining show. The family, their children and his mother do dumb contrived things but make it funny with their dry senses of humor.

Making millions on TV and not using it to pay their debts and back taxes was incredibly reckless.

Fat Donnie will be upset to learn that TV personalities can be sent to prison.

I dunno, there's lots of rape in prison, and Trump loves to rape.

The crimes Chesley was accused of seem pretty reminisent to those Trump has been accused of nut he isn't facing charges and just announced another run for the WH. Something is wrong with picture. Our nation claims to stand for equal justice under the law but it sure doesn't seem like that is how it operates.

Never did. That was the irony of the show.

I have no idea who these people are. But then I've been told I don't watch enough television.

Another family of Conservative, religious, self-made "rich" going to jail. Surprise surprise.
