“I want you all to know that the messages that we’re receiving, the mail … the gifts that people are leaving at our doors, the flower arrangements … all of this stuff is just overwhelming and very much appreciated,” the Chrisley Knows Best star, 53, said on the Wednesday, June 22, episode of his “Chrisley Confessions” podcast. “[But] we don’t want you … wasting your money on things like that. … We don’t need anything. So, really, the best gift you could give us is prayer.”
“Amen,” Julie, 49, responded in the background.
After explaining that the pair will “try to address as much as we can each week [about the trial] that we can address,” Todd said that everyone in the Chrisley family was “doing as well as can be expected during this storm that we’re going through. We’re going to continue to hold our head up and move forward.”
Earlier this month, the Georgia native and his wife were convicted on charges of tax evasion, bank and wire fraud and conspiracy stemming from a 2019 indictment. Their sentencing is scheduled for October 6, although the reality TV stars plan to file for a retrial ahead of that date.
“No one knows what’s going to happen or what to do at this stage,” a source told Us after the verdict was announced. “Any future planning in Todd and Julie’s life is pretty much on pause until they learn of the sentencing in the fall. It’s horrible news and they were not expecting to be found guilty. Their whole life changed in that moment.”
