Todd Chrisley: I broke the law and lied about it, please pray for me!

Todd Chrisley continues to look to a higher power.

The longtime reality star was found guilty of tax evasion and other financial fraud charges just over two weeks ago, and has now spent 30 years behind bars.

According to charges against Todd and his wife in 2019, the Chrisleys deliberately defrauded at least $30 million from community banks between 2007 and 2012 by inflating their assets to obtain approved loans.

The pair were also convicted on charges of hiding millions of dollars it made from its USA Network series from the government.

In his first statement since he was convicted of these charges, Todd pointed to God and told podcast listeners:

“It’s been a whirlwind,” the 53-year-old said on an episode of his Chrisley Confessions program on June 17.

“Lots of moving parts, a lot of things happening in our lives, and we’re seeing a lot of God’s movement right now.”

On the subsequent episode of the same show, Todd, meanwhile, addressed the supporters who, for one reason or another, remained by his side.

‘I’ll hang there. What about you?” Todd asked his wife during the broadcast, who replied:

“I’m as good as you are, honey.”

While they’ve received what Todd called an “overwhelming” amount of gifts from fans and followers, he said, “we don’t want you to send us flowers, we don’t want you to waste your money on that sort of thing.”

What does the lying liar ask?

“We don’t need anything. So really, the best gift you can give us is prayer.”

Continued Chrisley:

“Our family, we are all doing as well as expected during this storm that we are going through, and we will continue to hold our heads up and move forward.

“We appreciate all the kind letters, the cards, I mean tens of thousands of messages. I mean, on all our platforms.

“We are so grateful for that and those messages were very uplifting.”

“We wanted to come today and let everyone know that it is a very sad, heartbreaking time for our family right now,” Todd said shortly after learning his legal fate.

“We still hold steadfast in our faith and we trust that God will do what he is good at, because God is a miracle worker.

“We’re sticking to that.”

Savannah Chrisley feels the same.

“I’m thankful for those around me who choose to love and love hard…as hard as it may be,” she wrote online last week.

“I am grateful in a weird way because I know there is a God who does everything from scratch!”
