A federal grand jury has indicted "Chrisley Knows Best" reality TV couple Todd and Julie Chrisley and a former CPA named Peter Tarintino in connection with financial crimes.
Charges include conspiracy to commit bank fraud, wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States and tax evasion.
On Monday night, Todd Chrisley previewed the federal indictment in an Instagram message to fans, saying he has "nothing to hide." The Chrisleys, who now reside in Nashville, blamed seven years of financial trouble on a former employee they claimed created phony documents, forged signatures and threatened other employees in an attempt to set off a federal tax evasion and bank fraud investigation that never panned out.
