Reality TV Stars Julie and Todd Chrisley were sentenced to prison in federal court Monday.

The "Chrisley Knows Best" couple were found guilty in June of conspiracy to defraud banks out of more than $30 million in fraudulent loans, CNN previously reported. In addition, they were found guilty of several tax crimes, including attempting to defraud the Internal Revenue Service.

Judge Eleanor L. Ross sentenced Todd Chrisley to 12 years in prison with three years of supervised release. His wife Julie Chrisley was sentenced to seven years in prison and three years of supervised release. Their accountant Peter Tarantino was sentenced to three years in prison and three years of supervised released, Ryan Buchanan, US Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia, said during a press conference after the sentencing hearing.

According to the Department of Justice, evidence in the case showed that the Chrisleys were able to obtain the loans by submitting false bank statements, audit reports and financial statements. The money was used to buy luxury cars, designer clothes, real estate and travel, a DOJ press release stated.

Then, while earning millions of dollars on their former reality show, the Chrisleys, along with their accountant, conspired to defraud the IRS and evade collection of delinquent taxes.

"Chrisley Knows Best" debuted in 2014 on the USA Network. New episodes, filmed prior to the trial, will debut sometime next year.

In a short statement to CNN in June, one of Todd Chrisley's attorneys, Bruce Morris, said they were, "disappointed in the verdict" and planned to appeal.

CNN has reached out to representatives of the Chrisleys and Tarantino for comment on Monday's sentencing.

I didn't know who these people were until I saw the new story yesterday.  I guess that I'm not keeping up with our popular culture.

They had a TV show, and probably a good income, and yet the dumbasses chose to defraud banks and the IRS. You can't fix stupid.

If they kept the show going while serving their sentences, I might tune in from time to time. Maybe retitle it Chrisley Knows Less.

He will likely serve in a low security federal prison where boredom, bad food and the repetitive sameness of groundhog day may be his bigger challenges.  Then eventually, he will be released as a broke, 60 something year old with no business or TV opportunities.  If he is smart, he will try to build a release plan and be prepared for it.

I guess the lifestyle is over. 

How they needed to do what they did I don't get. They made enough money off of the show.

I have heard they were phonies all around. That he is actually not very nice.

Guess the kids will actually have to work for a living.
