"Julie Chrisley's lawyers requested during sentencing recommendations that if either party is sentenced to prison, their prison terms be staggered so that she can remain on supervised release until her husband is done serving his sentence or until their granddaughter turns 18," Fox News reported.
"Peter Tarantino, an accountant hired by the Chrisleys, was also found guilty and charged with two counts of willfully filing false tax returns," it added.

CNN reported regarding the care for other family members.
"Savannah Chrisley will be caring for her younger brother and niece as her parents Todd and Julie Chrisley have been sentenced to prison for fraud and tax crimes," CNN reported.
"Chrisley spoke about the custody arrangement on her podcast 'Unlocked with Savannah Chrisley' in an episode published Tuesday, during which she said she knew it was a possibility her parents would not be coming home" it added.
“I may come home without both of my parents,” she said prior to their sentencing on Monday.
“That’s what the chances are. That’s the likelihood, and that’s my new normal,” Savannah added.
The lengthy sentence may be appealed, but the couple will remain behind bars for the foreseeable future.
