RUTHERFORD COUNTY, TENNESSEE: Kyle Chrisley, Todd Chrisley’s son, also has significant legal issues, though his have so far ended with significantly less time behind bars. Kyle was arrested in Tennessee for aggravated assault.
Although the details of the arrest are not yet known, it happened shortly after Todd began serving his prison sentence for tax and bank robbery in January. While Todd is serving a 12-year sentence, Julie faces a seven-year sentence. Along with his ex-wife Teresa Terry, Todd is the father of Kyle, Lindsie, Chase, Grayson and Savannah. Along with Julie, Savannah is Savannah’s father. Todd and Julie were granted sole custody of Chloe, Kyle’s daughter from his marriage to Angela Johnson, while he struggled with drug addiction and bipolar disorder in 2016.

Kyle and Todd Chrisley over the years
Kyle and Todd’s relationship reportedly grew increasingly strained over time after they shared custody of Chloe, but we’ve since seen them reconcile. Before the punishment, Savannah claimed she now had custody of Grayson and Chloe.
Just months after Todd and Julie Chrisley completed their prison sentences, Kyle was charged with aggravated assault. The famous couple were found guilty of bank fraud, tax evasion and submitting false documents to banks to obtain loans of more than $30 million for their lavish lifestyle. The lawyers alleged that they also used a manufacturing company to hide their income from the IRS.
Julie was sentenced to seven years in prison, Todd to 12 years, with a probation period of 16 months after his release. In the Kentucky prison, Julie will trade her luxury wardrobe for a full khaki outfit. Todd will begin his sentence at FPC Pensacola in Florida, a minimum-security facility that has long been considered one of the best in the country.
