The celebrity couple, who found fame in 2013 when USA Network picked up their reality show "Chrisley Knows Best," were accused by federal prosecutors of manipulating financial records making it appear that they were wealthier than they were to apply for more than $30 million in loans, which they spend on a luxury lifestyle they couldn't afford.
When the banks caught on to them, the Chrisleys filed for bankruptcy, walking away from $20 million in debt. The couple went on to hide money from the IRS, with the help of Tarantino, prosecutors argued.
Jurors began hearing testimony in the case on May 17, with the trial spanning nearly three weeks.
They began deliberating on June 3.
Chrisleys blamed a former business partner
The Chrisleys' main defense was that the man who turned them into the FBI was also a fraudster.
Mark Braddock, who was part owner of Todd Chrisley's real estate foreclosure business, Chrisley Asset Management, admitted that he had created fake documents to send to banks to get loans on behalf of himself and the Chrisleys.
He also admitted to impersonating Todd Chrisley on multiple occasions.
