“Chrisley Knows Best” stars Julie and Todd Chrisley pleaded not guilty to tax evasion and other federal charges at an initial court appearance on Wednesday.
The couple was indicted the day before on 12 counts of conspiracy to commit bank and wire fraud, wire fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States and tax evasion.
If convicted of all counts, the reality personalities would face up to 30 years each behind bars.
A judge agreed to release them on $100,000 unsecured bond each. That means they’d only have to pay if they failed to show up for court dates.
The judge ordered them to surrender their passports and said they’re not allowed to travel outside of parts of Georgia and Tennessee without letting their probation officers know where they will be. Their lawyers had asked for travel permission so they can continue filming.
Todd Chrisley’s attorneys, Bruce H. Morris and Stephen Friedberg, told Fox News in a statement Tuesday: “The allegations contained in the indictment are based on complete falsehoods. The Chrisleys are innocent of all charges.”
On Monday night, Todd, 50, posted a lengthy Instagram note telling fans that an upcoming indictment was due to a disgruntled former employee stealing from his family and trying to retaliate after he was fired in 2012.
