The lawyers for Mr. Tarantino didn’t immediately respond to inquiries for comment.

According to the indictment, they obtained loans by using a bank statement that claimed they had $4million at Merrill Lynch, even though they didn’t have an account. According to the indictment, Mr. Chrisley ordered his accountant to do actions that he suggested would be “crooked.” Ms. Chrisley used glue and tape repeatedly to falsify documents.

A new series, “Love Limo,” hosted by Todd Chrisley would debut next year.

“Chrisley Knows Best” was described as the USA Network’s most-watched original series, with an average audience of 1.8million.

A spokesperson for NBC Universal declined comment to discuss the verdict and the company’s plans regarding the shows. The second half of Season 9 “Chrisley Knows Best”, which aired from June 23, is still on schedule.

The show follows a proven American formula and depicts a family that has traditional values and an easy way of expressing themselves. They also happen to be extraordinarily rich.

The trailer shows Mr. Chrisley and his wife, who are from a small rural town and now live in an “upscale neighborhood” outside Atlanta with “celebrities.” Although Mr. Chrisley makes “millions of dollar a year,” the Chrisleys still have the same problems as families earning $40,000, he claims.

Chrisley is the controlling patriarch. He responds to his sons’ misbehaviors by throwing his laptop in the pool. His wife is expected to be sarcastic but forgiving about her husband’s mistakes.

The Chrisleys are part of a growing list of reality TV stars who have been in legal trouble.

Michael (The Situation), an actor on MTV’s “Jersey Shore”, was sentenced in 2018 to eight months imprisonment for violating federal tax law. In 2014, Joe Giudice and Teresa Giudice were sentenced after pleading guilty, among other, to bankruptcy fraud.
