Todd and Julie Chrisley are set to go on trial for tax evasion and bank fraud on Monday, May 16, in Atlanta, Georgia.
Both Chrisleys are charged with one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, five counts of bank fraud, one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States and one count of tax fraud.
Prosecutors allege the Chrisleys filed fake documents to get millions of dollars in bank loans, and also submitted a fake credit report and fake bank documents while trying to rent a house in California in 2014. The couple allegedly moved into the home then refused to pay rent after a few months.
The indictment alleges they lied about their income to avoid paying taxes to the IRS. Money they received from their reality TV shows allegedly went to a production company they controlled. They failed to pay income taxes on the money for multiple years.
The Chrisleys were indicted in August 2019 and a new indictment was filed in January, The Tennessean reports.
Jury selection will begin Monday with opening statements expected Tuesday, the newspaper reports.
