Savannah Chrisley doesn’t understand why Jen Shah received a much shorter prison sentence than her parents, Julie and Todd Chrisley.
“Put the cases side by side, and it makes no sense — it just doesn’t,” Savannah said on Tuesday’s episode of her podcast, Unlocked.
The Chrisley Knows Best star noted that the former Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star had actual “victims” while her parents’ crimes were basically victimless.
Jen plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection to a nationwide telemarketing scheme that defrauded the elderly. Todd and Julie, on the other hand, were convicted of bank fraud and tax evasion.
“There were hundreds of victims who were elderly, and people that provided statements that lost their homes [and] threatened to end their lives,” Savannah continued. “There were so many different things, and she got six and a half years. Make that make sense!”
The RHOSLC alum was sentenced to six and a half years in prison on January 6. The Chrisleys went to trial in June 2022 and were found guilty of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States, and tax evasion.
The two were sentenced to a combined total of 19 years behind bars for their financial crimes.
“You have someone who has not admitted to guilt and who will stand firm in that,” Savannah said about her parents. “We’re standing by our truth that it is not guilty, [and] there are no victims.”
Julie, who appeared on her daughter’s pre-recorded podcast, agreed that, unlike Jen, her and Todd’s case had “no victim statements.”
“None of it adds up, and to me, there’s more to it,” Julie continued. “I have committed myself to figuring out what that is and for us to get to the other side of this so that we can help other people who are going through things like this.”
On Tuesday, Julie and Todd reported to prison. Julie will serve her seven-year sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution Marianna in Florida. Meanwhile, Todd will serve his 12-year sentence two hours away at the Federal Prison Camp in Pensacola.
The two have maintained their innocence and are appealing their conviction.
Jen reports to prison on February 17 to serve her six-and-a-half-year prison sentence.
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City airs Wednesdays at 9 pm on Bravo.
