Todd and Julie Chrisley have reportedly not spoken in over a year. That's not good for either of you or your marriage.
Right now, Todd Chrisley fears a possible transfer to prison and wonders if this is an attempt to silence him.
Todd has been able to talk to his children. He even gave an interview to the media.
But he hasn't been able to talk to his wife for more than a year. His prison approved it…so what happens?
Both Todd and Julie Chrisley entered prison in January 2023.
On February 17, 13 months have passed since their respective sentences.
In all that time they have not been able to speak to each other even once.
A new report claims that authorities have denied them the right to communicate with each other by phone.
According to a report by online radarTodd and Julie “haven’t spoken” since they showed up at their respective prisons.
Phone calls between incarcerated spouses are not against Federal Bureau of Prisons rules. The calls are monitored, like all other prison calls, except maybe those with lawyers.
However, the wardens of both facilities must give approval for these marital talks to take place.
Most prisons will allow these conversations to take place.
According to the report, Todd and Julie's legal team made a standard request for both prisons to allow them a monthly phone conversation.
Apparently, this agreement is “pretty standard.”
Julie's principal reportedly approved the request. However, the report says Todd's prison “refuses” to grant her permission to speak to his wife.
The inside source providing details for the report said the denial is “retaliation” against Todd.
In particular, Todd has spoken out against horrible prison conditions, shedding light on the prison injustice plaguing our country.
Through his own interviews and those of his adult children, Todd has brought attention to the deplorable ways our country treats its prisoners.
If white-collar criminals in a federal facility suffer blackmail attempts, threats, and biohazards, how much worse is the situation in other prisons?
Maybe Todd and Julie can talk soon.
You both have the legal right to coordinate with your legal team. They are appealing their convictions.
In a rare appeal win for Todd and Julie, they will be able to present oral arguments. Those hearings, scheduled for April, are just a couple of months away.
It is possible that something could change. However, even giving these arguments is statistically unusual in appeals. In reality, overturning the appeal or the sentence is a long shot, but it is the only hope the Chrisleys have.
We know that Todd and Julie Chrisley are not understanding people. To be frank, they have made it very clear over the years that they are not good people.
However, that does not mean that the prison nightmare they face is right or fair.
Every person has the right to basic human dignity. Many prisoners are innocent and 100% of the prisoners are people. Yes, even the Chrisleys.
