Savannah Chrisley opens up on what her parents, Julie Chrisley and Todd Chrisley are facing in prison.

According to Savannah Chrisley, her mother is now being treated in prison worse than a dog at the pound. She discussed some of the treatment they are receiving in prison on the Feb. 14 episode of her podcast, Unlocked with Savannah Chrisley. In November 2022, her parents were found guilty of fraud and tax evasion.

Chrisley informed the audience that Julie's facility's personnel treats assistance dogs better than prisoners.

"My mom's in a facility that has no air, but yet, there are service dogs for the prison that are in a heated and cooled building because it's inhumane for them not to have air," Chrisley said as per Page Six.

"I read an executive order that [President Joe] Biden signed that said all federal inmates must be housed in environmentally friendly facilities. And I'm like, 'OK, well, this is completely opposite of that."

Julie, 50, is incarcerated in the Federal Correctional Institution and Federal Prison Camp Marianna for a period of seven years. After being freed from prison, she will also complete 16 months on probation. Todd, 53, is at Federal Prison Camp Pensacola serving a 12-year sentence. Chrisley is caring for her brother Grayson, 16, and niece Chloe, 10, while they are incarcerated.

In another line from the most recent Unlocked episode, Chrisley described how "weird" it was to see her father sporting his own natural grey hair.

“He's definitely used some colour over the years, and now seeing him with grey hair. I'm like, 'Oh my gosh,'” she said. Nevertheless, she says that visiting her parents in jail has given her "so much hope" for the future.

"I never felt the presence of Jesus more than I have in that visiting room," Chrisley said. "Even visiting my dad, like, I know I have so much hope and so much restored strength that I'm like, 'This isn't the end.'"

She believes her parents are experiencing this "for us to make a difference, for us to make a change... Because whether this appeal works or not, they're still coming out with a story."
