The Chrisleys are going to prison.

Todd Chrisley has been sentenced to 12 years and 16 months probation after he and wife Julie Chrisley were found guilty of bank fraud and tax evasion, according to Fox 5 Atlanta.

Meanwhile, the outlet reports that Julie was given a lighter sentence of seven years and 16 months probation.

Neither the couple’s attorneys nor federal prosecutors immediately returned Page Six’s requests for comment.

Prior to the sentencing, prosecutors had recommended nearly 22 years behind bars for Todd, 53, and 12 years for Julie, 49, after the “Chrisley Knows Best” stars were found guilty of multiple charges in June.

“The Chrisleys have built an empire based on the lie that their wealth came from dedication and hard work,” prosecutors wrote in a sentencing memorandum on Nov. 16.

“The jury’s unanimous verdict sets the record straight: Todd and Julie Chrisley are career swindlers who have made a living by jumping from one fraud scheme to another, lying to banks, stiffing vendors, and evading taxes at every corner.”

Todd and Julie, who have maintained their innocence, fought back and vouched for less than the recommended time. His lawyers wanted a maximum of nine years in prison, and hers asked for probation with no jail time.

The reality TV stars had also filed a joint motion for a new trial on the grounds that a witness “lied” during their spring trial, which the court denied on Oct. 28.
