LEXINGTON (Court TV) — Ex-reality stars Julie Chrisley and Jerry Harris are serving their sentences at same federal prison, according to records.

On Tuesday, Julie Chrisley reported to FMC Lexington to begin her seven year sentence following convictions for fraud and tax evasion. Her husband, Todd Chrisley, is serving his 12-year sentence at a minimum security federal prison camp in Pensacola.

Prosecutors said the couple, known for their show “Chrisley Knows Best,” created false documents to secure $30 million in bank loans to fund their lavish lifestyles. To avoid paying back the loans, Todd reportedly filed for bankruptcy.

Jerry Harris, first known for his appearance on the Netflix docuseries “Cheer,” is serving a 12-year sentence “for coercing teenage boys to send him obscene photos and videos of themselves and soliciting sex from minors at cheerleading competitions,” The Associated Press reported.

Online records for the Federal Bureau of Prisons list Julie Chrisley and Jerry (Jeremiah) Harris at the same facility. FMC Lexington is described as “an administrative security federal medical center with an adjacent minimum security satellite camp.” The website reports that it currently has an inmate population of more than 1,350. Male and female inmates are kept separated.
