Todd and Julie Chrisley reported to their respective prisons on January 17th.

The matriarch of the reality TV family is serving out her seven-year prison sentence at the Federal Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky.

She was originally set to serve her sentence at FCI Marianna in Florida, which would’ve been near her husband’s prison in Pensacola, FL.

Julie Chrisley Switched Prisons At The Last Minute!

That was changed at the last minute.

If you’re wondering about her health status amid the prison switch to Federal Medical Center, you’re not alone.

According to reports, the prison switch has nothing to do with any health-related issues. She is not receiving any treatment, nor does she need any health treatment at this time.

Per TMZ, FMC is described as a medical center with a nearby minimum-security prison camp.

The crazy thing about the switch to FMC in Lexington is that another reality TV star is also serving out a lengthy prison sentence there.

Julie & Jerry Harris Are Locked Up In The Same Prison

Jerry Harris, made famous from Netflix’s “CHEER,” is locked up in the same prison.

The former Navarro cheerleader reported for his 12-year sentence last August.

Now, if you expect Julie and Jerry to start scheming about a possible reality TV show while locked up, lose the expectations.

Despite FMC Lexington being a minimum-security prison, the “Chrisley Knows Best” star and “Cheer” star will not be able to converse due to the prison’s strict policy of keeping the male and female inmates separated.

They are held in separate sections of the facility.

Julie was convicted in June 2022 for bank fraud, wire fraud and tax evasion. She’s maintained her innocence through it all, and so has Todd.

Jerry on the other hand plead guilty to one count of receipt of child pornography and one count of traveling with the intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct.

Harris was first charged in September 2020 when the FBI raided his Naperville, IL. home and charged him with producing child pornography.

According to authorities, Harris was soliciting sex from minors at cheer competitions and coercing teenage boys to send him inappropriate photos.

Jerry Harris Plead Guilty In His Child Pornography Case

Per court reports, this past February the “Cheer” star pled guilty to two charges of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old in the bathroom at a cheer competition and paying a 17-year-old to send him sexually explicit photos and videos via Snapchat.

He was denied bail while awaiting trial. Prosecutors argued the former reality TV star might prey on minors if he was released on bond.

Harris’ prison fate is very similar to that of reality TV star, Josh Duggar’s prison fate.

The former “19 Kids and Counting” was also sentenced to 12 years behind bars earlier this year in his child pornography case.

Is it just me, or am I seeing a trend between reality TV stars and prison…?

The Blast recently reported that Duggar’s living conditions are “dangerous.”

According to an inmate’s family member, FCI Seagoville is a hostile environment and the nearly 2,000 inmates suffer medical neglect.

The U.S. Sun exclusively reported the alarming news.

“There's not really much security around because they're dramatically understaffed,” their source with direct knowledge to the situation revealed. “The prison has pretty heavy politics, which means there are gangs in it. Fortunately, it is nowhere near as violent as a medium-security facility.”

They continued to say, “But it is just a dangerous situation, given the level of neglect and so I know that my family member has felt concerned for his, I guess I would say he's always concerned for his well-being, even if he feels physically safe.”
