Todd Chrisley asks for prayer after being found guilty of fraud

Todd Chrisley is seeking some spiritual support after he and his wife Julie were convicted of fraud earlier this month.

“I want you all to know that the messages we receive, the mail… the gifts people leave at our doors, the flower arrangements… all these things are just overwhelming and very much appreciated,” the “Chrisley Knows Best star, 53, said on Wednesday’s episode of his “Chrisley Confessions” podcast.

†[But] we don’t want you…wasting your money on that sort of thing. … We don’t need anything. So really, the best gift you can give us is prayer.”

Julie, 49, then hears an “Amen” reply in the background.

The reality stars were found guilty of bank fraud and tax evasion on June 7 after initially being charged in August 2019. In February of this year, another indictment was filed.

They were eventually convicted of submitting false documents to banks when applying for loans, with Julie also submitting false credit reports and bank statements while trying to rent a home in California.

Peter Tatantino, the couple’s accountant, was also found guilty of a series of related charges, including complicity in filing false tax returns.

A sentencing date has yet to be scheduled and the couple remain out on bail.

The couple previously shared in the podcast that it has been “a very sad, heartbreaking time for our family” since the verdict.

“But we still hold steadfast in our faith and we trust that God will do what he does best because God is a miracle worker,” Todd said. “We are very much alive and we appreciate all the support we have received from everyone.”
