On Monday, a federal judge sentenced Todd, 54, to 12 years in prison for bank fraud and tax evasion, while Julie, 49, was sentenced to seven years for her involvement in the crimes.

PEOPLE spoke to former federal prosecutor and president of West Coast Trial Lawyers Neama Rahmani — who has no ties to the Chrisley case — to confirm that the pair are expected to serve “85 percent of their sentences” under federal law.

“And that’s the minimum they’ll have to serve if they’re model prisoners,” Rahmani explained. “Unlike states where inmates can sometimes serve less than half their sentence, federal statutes only allow you to get a small reduction for good behavior.”

Rahmani added that the couple, who will begin their jail term at the start of the new year, most likely received “heavy sentences” because “they did not accept any responsibility even after they were convicted”.

Before her parents’ sentencing, Savannah opened up on Monday’s episode of her podcast about the possibility of getting custody of Chloe and her brother Grayson. Unlocked with Savannah Chrisley.

“It’s just really hard sitting here four days before I’m going to sit in court,” she said on the show. “I don’t know what my fate is, what my family’s fate is. I know that the short term is going to be very difficult and I might come home without both my parents. That’s what the odds are, that’s the probability, and that’s my new normal.”

She started to get emotional and continued, “I come home on Tuesday and have custody of a 16-year-old, I have custody of a 10-year-old, and we don’t spend our first Thanksgiving as a family.”
