The Chrisley family has been making headlines lately, but unfortunately, it’s not for positive reasons. Todd Chrisley, the family patriarch, and Julie Chrisley, the matriarch, have both been convicted on various charges and are currently serving time.
Their children, Chase and Savannah Chrisley, have come forward to shed light on the alleged appalling conditions their parents are enduring while behind bars. During Savannah’s podcast, ‘Unlocked with Savannah Chrisley,’ Chase shared his recent experience visiting their incarcerated father.
According to Chase, the conditions in the facilities where their parents are serving their sentences are nightmarish. To make matters worse, there is no air conditioning, leaving Todd and Julie to endure extreme temperatures exceeding 100 degrees in Pensacola, Florida, and Lexington, Kentucky, respectively.
Savannah also had distressing accounts to share. Her mother allegedly mentioned encountering rattlesnakes casually slithering on the floor in front of her, even spotting snakes around her bed and cell. Despite their parents’ convictions, the siblings believe that everyone, regardless of their situation, deserves humane treatment, such as access to air conditioning.
Chase recognized that public sentiment toward incarcerated individuals often lacks sympathy until it becomes personal. Nevertheless, he pointed out that they are talking about their parents, and while others might not feel sorry for them, it’s different when it involves their loved ones.
Savannah expressed the difficulty of witnessing her parents’ ordeal in prison, but she also acknowledged their resilience and love for each other. She emphasized their strength and loyalty, noting that this challenging situation won’t break them.
Interestingly, the release of the podcast coincided with Chase announcing his breakup with his fiancee, Emmy. He shared the news on his social media, asking for privacy as they both decided to go their separate ways.
It’s evident that the Chrisley family is going through a tough time, both in the public eye and in their personal lives, with their parents facing legal consequences and challenging conditions in prison.
