In the midst of a fraud scandal, Todd Chrisley wants a new trial

In the midst of a fraud scandal, Todd Chrisley wants a new trial ...

Chrisley Knows Best star Todd Chrisley isnt going down without a fight.

According to court filings obtained by Heavy, the reality TV star filed a motion for a retrial on August 24. The $30 million fraud trial in which he and his wife Julie Chrisley were found guilty on all counts ofbank fraud and tax evasion was fundamentally unfair.

The Chrisleys' legal team argued that IRS Revenue Officer Betty Carter lied about the Chrisleys' owing taxes during her testimony.

According to the Chrisleys' legal team, she knew no taxes were due. This testimony had the effect of phoning the Chrisleys as untruthful, likely to commit other forms of fraud, and evacuating tax payments alleged in the indictment.

The court did not respond to the Chrisleys' request for a retrial immediately.

According to Deadline, the pair will be sentenced on October 6, which might put them to up to 30 years in prison.

The Chrisleys maintain their innocence.

The Chrisleys' Lawyers allege that their rights were violated.

Lawyers for reality TV stars also argued that there was an unlawful search for evidence.

Even if this evidence had been suppressed under previous judgments, the Court admitted substantial volumes of evidence at trial that were obtained in violation of the Fourth Amendment, Chrisleys lawyers alleged, without requiring the government to make any evidence at all that the evidence should not be excluded.

The Chrisleys want a new trial that includes legal evidence that has been obtained legally and witnesses who testify truthfully, according to the motion.

Chrisley Says Hes Not Perfect

Todd Chrisley (@toddchrisley) has shared a post.

Chrisley still maintains his innocence in the fraud prosecution, but that doesnt mean he is perfect. During an episode of his podcast, Chrisley Confessions, the businessman, 53, said he made several errors along the way.

Per Us Weekly, we have shown the flaws. I have no shame in that. You cannot shame me for anything that is going on in my life or in my family, because it was my life, and it was my time to live. It was me who made the decision, whether it be good, bad, or irrelevant.

Chrisley, an entrepreneur who started out in real estate, stated that he was happier before he became rich.

I was unconcerned about someone attempting to defraud us, because we didnt have much to lose, according to the guy who made the comment.

Chrisley has a net worth of $1.5 million, although that figure may change depending on his conviction.

Chrisley said in a July episode of his podcast that he became a slave to making money.

Per Us Weekly, you become a slave to things that you thought would bring you peace. I became lost in that and for my whole life because I thought I was too ignorant and when I use the term ignorant [I mean] I [didnt] know how to distinguish self-worth and net worth.

He said that when I realized that I was not competing with everyone else around me, I was competing with me. My self-worth is low.
