Reality TV star Julie Chrisley had to deal with many changes over the past year when she and her husband Todd Chrisley, both known for the longtime Chrisley Knows Best, were sentenced to a combined prison term of 19 years in November for several years financial crimes. Both started their sentences this week, and after hearing that Julie’s jail time would be served in a very different facility than originally thought, we now know that her new home is also home to another incarcerated reality star, but her won’t spend time there together.

Who is the other reality TV star Julie Chrisley is in jail with?

Although they’re both serving time in the same minimum-security prison, people can probably understand why they don’t do chores together or spend their free time in the same exercise yard, since male and female inmates are expectedly held in different sections of the prison (which has been confirmed to include medical and military inmates). non-medical reasons).

After initially pleading not guilty, the athlete changed his plea to guilty in February 2022, admitting to paying a 17-year-old boy to send him sexually explicit videos and photos and an allegation of killing a 15- Sexually assaulting a year-old boy performing during a cheer competition. Harris was sentenced to 12 years in federal prison in early July of that year.

Julie Chrisley was sentenced to seven years in prison and her husband to 12 years. Her son Chase was candid just weeks ago about the “awful, awful situation” and how it put the whole family through “hell.” However, all of her children offered plenty of support as they prepared to begin their sentence, and daughter Savannah wrote an open birthday letter to her mother.

Harris’ attorney remarked to the outlet that he’s “doing fine for someone who’s in prison,” and only time will tell if those representing the Chrisleys can say the same.
