Us weekly confirmed on Monday, Nov. 21, that 53-year-old Todd and Julie were sentenced to prison after being found guilty of tax fraud. The USA Network patriarch was sentenced to 12 years in prison, and Julie to seven years. The couple will also receive 16 months of probation.
The reality TV couple, who married in 1996, were initially charged in 2019 with 12 counts of tax evasion, banking and electronic fraud and conspiracy. Although Todd and Julie denied the allegations, in May a jury found them guilty on all counts.

And at that moment, they will be the ones who can tell you about everything that is happening in our lives at this moment.”

When Todd and Julie arrive in jail, Savannah will have custody of her 16-year-old brother Grayson and 10-year-old niece Chloe. (Todd and Julie received custody of his son Kyle’s daughter, Chloe, due to personal issues in 2013.)

I come home on a Tuesday and I have custody of a 16 year old and a 10 year old and we don’t spend our first Thanksgiving as a family. I never left my family for the holidays.”
Todd, who shares daughter Lindsey and son Kyle with his ex-wife Teresa Terry — and since then, Julie has been nervous about their new normal.
“Deep down I know that I am a Christian. I know I believe God can work miracles, but I still have that fear,” Julie said on Wednesday’s episode, noting that she is “going through a nightmare.”
